70-30 in Khan's favour. Much bigger name and far more proven, too. No way can a 50-50 split be argued.

I agree 100%. Shocked to see so many people in here thinking Brook deserves more

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.

Thoughts?
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.

50/50 IF kell is world champ after his title fight AND khan doesnt hold a belt OR hasnt avenged peterson or garcia.if not 60/40 to old glass neck.im sure if khan was confident enugh of a win hed accept 50/50 no matter what the situation was.still think brook takes this fight tho by ko

If Brook has a belt and Khan doesn't beat a decent fighter/belt holder in the mean time, then I'd say 60/40 in Amir's favor is fair, if Brook doesn't fight the winner of Bailey/Alexander then 70-30.

Khan is a star in Britain, Kell isn't.

60-40 in Khans favour. Possibly even 65- 35. Khan is by far the bigger draw. Brook hasn't even managed to reach world level yet. And looking at his last showing. I'm having ever so slight doubts that he will.

Makes no matter why they watch him, they still watch him. Khan's the best known boxer in Britain; non-boxing fans woudn't recognise Brook if he knocked on their front door and introduced hmself.
