    Anyone any ideas? Surely it must be in Usyk's favour. Five belts and travelling away from home. I know Hearn and Bellew would argue Bellew is the A side in terms of revenue generated. Bellew has done big numbers because of Haye his last two fights that might of gone to his head a bit.

    I reckon it’s it’s 55:45 in usyks favour because he called bellew out he wanted the fight bellew Came down Cruiserweight after 2 years (although I think that was bellew a choice) I think bellew brings the £££ as uk boxing is booming and the wba wanted usyk v lebadev and the purse would haven’t been that good for that

    That’s what I think could be miles wrong

    I head Usyk is getting 45% of a third of 60% plus 20% minus a % for every punch he lands.

    Who gives a ****?

    I would agree with that or maybe 60/40 still a massive payday for Usyk in a winnable fight. Bellew has said this one is not about the money

    It's a fair question, we are on a boxing forum talking boxing matters.
    55/45 Usyk favour, I reckon

    I think it's at least 60%. More like 70% for Bellew.

    Its gonna favour Bellew definitely, as he wants Joshua after Usyk does, or one of the UK heavies, so I think Hearn would have that as a bargaining tool.

    Uysk has a deal with Hearn primarily as a DAZN fighter so he will be making good money from US rights. Tbe other thing, isnt it refreshing that two fighters are willing just to make such a fight without any squabbles like so many others. Usyk could have went straight to heavyweight, Bellew could have took bigfer money fights or just retired. If props to both men.

    Fully agree moog, neither man needed to take this fight, but they're getting straight to it, no messin' oldschool style

    £4 mil seems like too much for Bellew. How does the money go so much higher than the haye fight? I don't know think the PPV buyrate will be as high.

    I know Hearn has his DAZN budget and could dip into that I guess to get the fight made just it seems a bit strange as they would estimate less buys than the Haye fight.

    That report says both to earn £4 mil so that's £8 mil total. Seems very high to me. I would of thought it would of been like £2 mil each.
