TYSON FURY made 67 TIMES more than Dillian Whyte in their last game, said promoter Frank Warren.
The couple is 33 years apart currently negotiating to meet after the WBC ordered Fury to face the obligatory challenger Whyte.
But the regulator has announced the split will be 80% in favor of the champion.
Whyte was furious and will oppose the decision with an appeal, as the amount spent is back a week to January 17 or 18.
Warren mentioned above talkSPORT: “First of all, the wallet bid has been pushed back a week now.
“It was done [Saturday], so they’re bidding in seven days, so I think it’s next Monday or Tuesday,”
“As for the division, of course they have the right to appeal.
“I don’t think they’re going anywhere because the bid is based on the boxer’s previous earnings.
“Tyson’s last wallet sent to the WBC was £20 million and Dillian Whyte’s wallet was £300,000, which is why it was at the time of the split.
“One situation in the last year I can think of was when Canelo was fighting against his mandator at the time, Billy Joe Saunders but Billy just made a deal.
“It won’t be for him to make 45% in the wallet because the biggest generator of them all is Canelo.”
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman confirms the split has been determined after a review Fury and Whyte’s recent payday.
Sulaiman said to BoxingScene: “The consideration for the 80/20 split comes from the amount of money the fighters have earned in their recent bouts.”
Despite Warren’s claims, reports at the time suggested that Whyte had in fact earned almost £4m in his last game, winning the rematch against Alexander Povetkin, 42.
Tyson’s final wallet sent to the WBC was £20 million and Dillian Whyte’s wallet was £300,000, which is why it was at the time of the split.
Whyte had hoped for a 45% split due to his status as WBC’s ‘interim’ champion.
But Fury’s superior record has seen the WBC hand him the prize of lions in a potential combat wallet.
“Certainly when you have a heavyweight that makes the money that Tyson makes, there’s never going to be such a split,” Warren said.
“It’s not something new, this has been going on this way for at least 25+ years. Most organizations operate this way and that’s it.
“They can make their appeal, no one in any way from our point of view says you can’t do it, but the fact of the matter is I don’t think it’s going to make a difference.” bye.”
