So Geale's promotional team can effectively offer a low figure for him to fight, which they'd be entitled to, or go to purse bids which they'll win anyway and still Sam would only get 25%.

Sturm has German TV onside, RTL I think, and is known to pay his opponents well due to this revenue. I'm not saying the fight is happening, but I wouldn't blame Sam for taking it, if it does.
thats a very vague statement.

tell us figures.
