Or could you argue that as Brook is the champion, & unbeaten, he deserves a 60/40 or 55/45 split. Also Khan has never fought at 147 so that goes against him to.
I can't see the split being anything other than 50/50, but I also can't see a justifiable reason to give Khan the bigger end of the purse.
Terrible reasoning. There's one thing Khan has over Brook - he's a star, Brook isn't. Khan generates more interest, bigger gates, and has faced and beaten better opponents than Brook.
Undefeated champion means nothing when you're not the money man.
