Default Re: Brook v Khan - How would you split the purse?

Brook could reasonably negotiate 35-40% I'd have thought if the scenario in the OP played out. He'd be a legitimate belt holder and his profile would have risen in this country when doing it. Khan would still be the bigger name, but the fight would probably be financially the biggest he could make outside of Mayweather or Pacquiao.

People thinking Brook takes a 70/30 split are crazy. It takes 2 to tango, and there is no way Khan can generate massive interest in England without a suitable opponent.

Calzaghe & Hatton could fill a staduim fighting a local cab driver. Khan has got no chance of doing the same. Hes been KO'd twice, lost 3 times. He's becoming a big name like Audley Harrison to the casual. Synonymous with all mouth & no action.

Brook is known to British boxing fans.

Khan is known to Casual boxing fans worldwide.

That's all she wrote

Khan would get the bigger purse here. Bigger name, has won more and beaten much better fighters than Brook has.

Mainly because half of Belfast travelled over to support McCloskey.

I would give Khan 2.50 and that's being generous, Khan has been exposed as the shit fighter he is, giving him loads of money won't help him or improve him, it would just fuel his deluded ego.

He's a ****ing arrogant sappy cunt.

If Brook wins the IBF title and Khan looks shaky in his next fight or two and with Brook's growing popularity and Khan's declining popularity for me it should be split 50/50 or Brook as champ to get a higher share

You have to ask yourself,"how likely is it that this fight will happen anytime soon?" Not very IMO, the seeds have started to be sewed, though.

If the fight happened tomorrow, I'd give Brook 65 Khan 35, because Khan needs Brook more than Brook needs Khan, at this moment in time anyway.

If your scenario were to come true, although I think Khan will fight McCloskey first, then a 50-50 split would be fair, as I'd expect this fight to be big bucks and Matchroom with Sky, bringing more to the table.

Winner gets 60 .... Khan wouldn't dare agree to it though

Realistically...it should be 60/40 to Khan.
