Hearn wants a deal in principle before the Gypsy King and the Bronze Bomber get it on in L.A. and wants the split to be determined by the he number of pay-per view buys Wilder’s world title fight with Fury brings in: 200,000-plus buys – 80 per cent for Joshua, 20 per cent for Wilder; 300,000-plus buys – 70-30; 500,000-plus buys – 60-40.
The Wilder team however are waiting until the Fury fight is over, expecting yet another spectacular KO by their man to send his value through the roof on both sides of the Atlantic.
Dillian Whyte is being touted as an ideal alternative to Wilder for Joshua in April, despite being knocked out by AJ in their first fight in 2015.
