Joseph Parker has made headlines lately regarding deals but this time it looks like one will be made.
The WBO World heavyweight champions promoter Dave Higgins claimed last week that he was offered an 80-20 split in favour of Anthony Joshua by Matchroom. Naturally, Team Parker wasn’t happy about the offer declined it.
“I think Eddie is offering [Parker] 20 percent [of the purse] to kill the fight because he’s worried his golden goose might get beaten. I think he’s offering that on purpose so he can go in another direction. He knows that we won’t take 20 percent. It’s an insult,” told Higgins according to ESPN.
Eddie Hearn went on Twitter and wrote that no such deal was ever offered and labeled the New Zealander’s ‘very strange’.
