Tyson Fury has been accused of being a money-pincher for refusing to give a large portion of his purse to Dillian White.
The Gypsy King refused to give his former teammate a more than 20 percent division for the Mandatory Battle of Britain, which was approved by the WBC.
Brixton banger White initially sought a 40 percent split, which Brother Dean believed was more than warranted, given his status as interim WBC Heavyweight Champion.
He told Boxing Social: “I thought it was a little unfair, to be honest. But according to their guidelines, as mandatory, it’s up to 30 percent.
“And as a WBC interim champion, it’s up to 45 or 55 percent.
“And when you take into account that Dillian is a pay-per-view fighter—he does good numbers, sells to O2 on a few occasions—that would suggest that he does quite a ticket and he’s got it.” Good fan base.
“So you want to keep all of that in mind. We understand there’s a lot of money on the line, but still, Tyson Fury and his team always say, ‘Money isn’t my main focus. I give my way to charity’ Am. ‘
“And from here on out, you end up giving money to someone else who’s into the sport of boxing, just like you, who wants to earn what they’re reasonably owed and what they want.”

Dean believes that his brother would be a fool to accept the current offer on the table because he would not be rewarded appropriately for selling the fight.
He continued: “A lot of people say, ‘Oh, well Dill should take it as it is for the world title.’
“But you have to understand, that means he’ll take it and all he wants to do is move this fight forward, make the pay-per-view numbers as big as they go to Tyson Fury for the most part.” Maybe. For what?”
A stadium performance is planned for the pair’s long-awaited dust-up, which Dean believes would be a remote possibility for Fury without his siblings.
He added: “If it’s a stadium fight, it’s a stadium fight because he’s fighting Dillian White.
“Tyson Fury fights someone else, I’m not sure he even sells 5000 tickets, not funny.”
Fury, a former unified heavyweight champion, plans to fight with or without White on March 26.
Promoter Frank Warren told IFL TV: “Tyson wants the fight to happen by the end of March.
“As a team, we are looking at other conditions as well. Whatever happens, he will fight on March 26, that is the objective.
“I wouldn’t say where it is.
“We have a date here but it could be somewhere else. The truth of the matter is, he wants to fight then.”
He added: “Fighting at Old Trafford has always been my dream.”
