FWIW, despite my points to the contrary above, now that Wilder has beaten somebody of note, I do think that a 50/50 split would be the fairest way now.

Are the purses never variable depending on who wins? For example, surely wilder would be happy with a 70/30% split for the winner (given his apparent confidence).
No, the split is fixed before the fight. Not sure why you think it's remotely fair, Wilder got $2.1m for his last fight and has never made more than $2.5m for any of his fights. AJ earnt $20-30m for his last 2 fights and will probably make a similar amount for his next Parker fight. Why should he split it 50/50 when he will generate 90%+ of revenue?
