Default Hearn says Khan Brook must be 50 / 50 split.

But judging on how team Khan have been so big headed and have a greater sense of worth do you think they will accept these terms? 50/50 on usa earnings as well? Can't see team Khan agreeing to those terms young eddie.

Khan would say no to 50/50 and rightfully so

He also said the fight would make them 2million quid each.

Not sure what basis Hearn has for asking for 50/50. Suppose it depends when the fight happens, give it another year and Brook might be able to offer more.

It shouldn't be 50/50. Khan is the former Champion, the guy who's fights are on HBO. Brook is a step down for him.

He's just baiting.

Khan's the one coming off two bad defeats and Fast Eddie is using this as a chance to goad.

A step down from the great Carlos Molina?

Molina isn't on a 50/50 deal though. Nothing wrong with Khan/Brook fight but let's not pretend Brook deserves anything near 50/50.

Well he's not going to come out and say "We'll take 65/35" is he. Start at 50/50 and negotiate into something reasonable.

Don't try and twist my words mate.

You said Brook is a step down for Khan, when actually he is a massive step up from Molina.

When did I say Brook deserved an even split? He clearly doesn't, if no belt I'd say 70/30 in Amir's favor is fair, with a belt 60/40 to Khan.

Hearn said Frank was wasting his time with the Froch offer for Cleverly because they are not in the same weight class. Amir is a 140lber and will be for a while yet. Concentrate on making the Alexander fight.

Not many promoters openly discuss figures like young Eddie. Frank could learn a thing or 2 here.

I believe Eddie when he said 50/50.

There will probably be a reality check on that soon enough, even if Kell does hold a title.

And Khan is a MASSIVE step up from Saldivia, Jones, Magic Matty and everyone else Kell has fought. Molina is a shit fight but it's obvious Khan wasn't going to go in with a Matthysee after two straight defeats On the whole, Khan fights top level fighters. Brook is a step down from them at the moment. Beat Alexander though and fair enough.

Laz you seem like a fairly intelligent guy, you start at 50/50 in negotiations then wait for Team Khan's counter offer.

Come on Laz.
