According to a tweet from Joshua's manager, Joshua has accepted the parameters provided by Fury last week, including a 60-40% split of revenue in Fury's favor and the suggested fight date of December 3. Frank Warren, co-promoter of Fury, said that a contract will be forthcoming.
On the same day, Fury was interviewed by TalkSport,
“I think [60-40] is more than generous,” he said.
“I didn’t want to go in and start offering them 20% like they would’ve done to me. However, I really want this fight to happen as Usyk – the little middleweight – doesn’t want no smoke like I thought he didn’t, and now I’m going after AJ.
“I’ve already beat Deontay Wilder, so there’s only one other person and that’s AJ, the bodybuilder! So, why not give him 40 percent? Give him no excuses and let’s get the fight made for the British public.”
A fight between Fury and Joshua was expected to happen last year. On the other hand, a U.S. judge determined that Fury must fight Wilder for a third time per their rematch deal.
