People are not exactly wowed with the Fury Joshua fight demands and have been making their voice heard to the full on the web since the news broke.
Tyson Fury made it public yesterday that he expects a 60-40 deal in his favor for any potential mega fight between him and heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua at some point in the future.
Fury recently got cleared from a long-standing issue with UKAD that has seen him not box for over two years and now in the new year, he’ll finally have his chance once more to apply for a boxing license.
But he’s already thinking big mind you with the Joshua fight at the front of his mind. He seems genuinely serious about wanting the bigger share of the pie.
Here’s how fight fans have taken to those demands:
Funny because you’re entitled to about 15% and should be lucky to be in a ring with him.

Lucky? He’s the lineal heavyweight champion who done a better job on Wlad than Joshua.

Pricing yourself out of it and trying to blame them ?

Joshua has the belts and is by far the bigger name

60-40 Joshua and that’s being generous

Fury brings nothing to the table except an over inflated ego, can’t blame the fella for trying to talk himself into the biggest payday he’ll ever have. But he is irrelevant to Joshua.

You clown. Don’t you realise Joshua is just a paper champ? Joshua’s belts belonged to Fury and Fury is still unbeaten and the lineal champion #gypsyking

I understand the threat of Tyson 100% . But you call @anthonyfjoshua a paper champ, the guy who has had comfortable more world title fights than Fury, won and defending world titles. Don’t claim Fury is still unbeaten, he has not once defended this “Lineal championship”
