Matchroom/Brook wanted 50/50........Khan wanted more of the pie, so its not happening.

Khan doesn't want the fight so he's priced himself out and I hope pretty much everyone can see that is the case.

He's got this notion he's the big name, but he's not got the status he thinks and he's also gotten tanked a few times now so should be grateful for whats offered. Add to this that'd it'd be Matchroom who'd do all the legwork in terms of promo for a potential Brook/Khan clash and basically Khan is just running scared from the fight whilst trying to blame Brook....he's a pathetic tossa(literally)

I hope Kell now doesn't mess about and rises in weight to 154 where he's better suited. I really hope he doesn't feel the need to compromise himself to defend the IBF strap at 47. It'd have been worth it for a Khan fight but not now.

I think both sides are to blame and not sure how anyone what comes out of Khan or Hearn's mouths.

I can understand Khan wanting more than 50/50 as you look at his list of opponents and his profile to the general public and it P***es all over Brook's. However, Kell is world champion and Hearn wants the best deal for him. But 30% of Brook v Khan would make more for Brook than any other fight at welter or light middle

I don't think it's anything other than a 50/50 fight.  Both lost last time out and are fortunate that they have this opportunity to make some serious money.  Unfortunately Khan seems to be valuing himself far higher than someone who was starched last time out.

I recall Khan talking about how he can sell out Sheffield better than Kell Brook could.

Then his big homecoming did about 6,900 tickets and there was a lot of comp tickets and empty seats at that too.

70/30 is reaching but I think the split should be in Khan's favour.

Hearn said himself in an Ifl interview that sometimes you have to look at the figures/money on the table and realise it's a good deal. 40% split for Brook would be miles more money than he'd get anywhere else. If they could get 40% he should take it.

I don't see Khan getting paid anywhere else outside of this fight or Pornhub though hence I think 50/50 is fair.  Even though Brook lost last time out I still think there are a number of good fights that can be made for him whereas I don't really see much on the horizon for Khan as things stand.

With Khan already being established in the US Garcia, Porter, Thurman fights are all out there and easier to make being with Haymon. He'd also get tidy paydays. He's in a stronger position than Brook with financial options.

The only way I see one of those fights being there is if one of Garcia or Thurman gets annihilated and needs a comeback fight.

If Brook beats Spence he'd have a huge fight against the winner of Thurman v Garcia or could make a decent run at 154.

Maybe Amir is making good enough money off his private webcam shows he doesn't care for this fight.

I like the look of Spence and at 147 (which I think Brook would struggle to make now) it is very high risk low reward. If Brook were to take it and lose that is 2 defeats on the bounce and I think he struggles to get back into contention.

At 154, where it appears he belongs now, is there any big fights bar Canelo who I don't think would entertain Brook in the foreseeable?

Khan is clearly at the end of his career now, so is only after pay days. And as he makes 147 easily, like it or not, he has name value so will get the bigger fights

If you look at who he has fought the last couple of years I don't really see where his name has any value.  He spent most of his time begging to fight Floyd or Manny and getting the like of Collazo instead.  The fight with Canelo wasn't because of his name, he was just a body for Alvarez to beat up as was Smith and as Chavez Jr will be.

Disagree on name value but see your point on Canelo's opponents. If Spence wins the IBF I could quite easily see Khan as his first defence or even the Thurman v Garcia winner. They would see it as a very winnable fight for more money than most others in the division. As I said I think his career is on wind down and he is just looking for pay days now. And he does have some good wins on his resume

The fight should have been made with a 55/45 or 60/40 split in khans favour. 70/30 is just plain pricing yourself out of the fight.

If brook beats Spence - brooks stock will just get even higher... and then he will be free to face the winner of Thurman v Gracia. Khan in the meantime will be out in the cold.

What about an equal split with a clause for the winner to get an extra percentage?
