Tyson Fury is entitled to a greater share of the purse for his rematch against heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, says the WBC.
Britain’s Fury and American Wilder shared a controversial and thrilling draw in Los Angeles in December.
The WBC has told their promoters to agree to a rematch by 5 February.
If there is no agreement, the WBC will split the purse bid 60-40 in favour of Wilder, “considering the market value of Fury”.
This is an increase from the 30% that is typically due to the challenger in a title fight.
The WBC sanctioned a direct rematch between Fury and Wilder last month, ensuring the American did not have to face mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale next. (BBC Sport)
