According to Frank Warren, the promoter of British boxer Tyson Fury, the proposed fee distribution of 70/30 in favor of Fury in his upcoming fight with Usyk is equitable.
This statement comes in response to Tony Bellew's comments, in which he commended the Ukrainian fighter for agreeing to these terms, acknowledging that Usyk's desire to secure the opportunity to compete for the unified title outweighed his monetary gain.
"We've agreed on a fee split for Fury, that's the deal we have. Why should I worry about Tony Bellew's words? He'll always have something to say about everything.”
“Don't forget that Tyson, if I'm not mistaken, only fights once every 182 days of the year, so he needs money. It’s normal if he performs twice a year.”
“Who cares what Tony says? It does not matter. These guys are the best, they are boxing hall of famers. These are great fighters. Who pays attention to his words? If Bellew were Tyson, wouldn't he want the lion's share? Leave it," Warren said to iFL TV.
