    If you were the former heavyweight world champion and they offered you some money to give up the rematch with the possibility of not being able to have more chances to become champions again because in the meantime others have earned that right like Joyce, Hrgovic, Mahkmudov, Sanchez, Wilder himself. For how many millions would you step aside?

    Since a heavyweight unification will be a superfight worth a hundred million plus easily, the real question is:

    How much does Anthony Joshua really believe he can beat Usyk?

    That being said, for myself personally, fifteen million.

    if i can get a guaranteed shot at the winner, any amount i can squeeze out of them. im the young guy, i can only improve my chances with time. start working with a new coach now to get a working relationship tuned, then take on the winner for all the marbles. it works out well for him.

    When Usyk beats him again, where does he go? im not sure.

    He should fight Wallin next not Usyk

    Let Fury deal with Usyk then Fury will come back to AJ for an easy fight for the most money

    Its simple

    Hmmm, I am bodybuilder. I already have tens of million in my bank account.

    I’ll fight Usyk again, get my respect back. Then unify.

    If I lose, who cares. I still have tens of millions.

    In fact, why am I still working? I’m going to retire now with my tens of millions

    Oh wait, I am not actually bodybuilder.

    It would have to be a lot. A bird in hand is worth two in the bush, as they say. It is nice to be "guaranteed" a shot at the winner, but it is better to have a date set with one of them. Plus, he could probably command more with belt.

    The people saying 15 million are in the right ballpark.

    Imagine the trash talk from Fury when Fury and Joshua actually do fight.

    Yes but I make sure I'm inserted into the contract to face the undisputed winner next. He can then take a keep busy fight against Ortiz or someone like that and fight for all the belts before the end of the year.

    Probably makes more money this way than just (potentially) losing to Usyk and being the B side to any future clash with Fury.

    Purely to make the most money. Take step aside man and fight say Wilder and Have Fury beat Usyk to have the full wembley fight.

    Or if he really believes it. Beat Usyk and then do it.

    This thread are useless. AJ won't step aside. Also Fury is just doing his usual talk, without any backup. He know Usyk is tied up, and thats why he is talking, he want Usyk.

    And you can mark my words here, that USYK will KO FURY 50000000% !!!!
    Fury is so open for straight and overhand, its unreal. His chin is far from durable, no matter what some blindboy fanboys are saying.

    Yeah, that would be quite a big number (7 figures), and I would need a guarantee to fight the winner within a years time.
    In other words, a sidestep isn't going to happen.
