WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and Britain's Tyson Fury must agree to terms on a rematch by February 5 or else it will be put to a purse bid with a 60‑40 split in Wilder’s favour.
TVNZ reports that if the situation goes to a purse bid, any promoter can bid to host the fight, with Wilder getting 60% of the winning bid and Fury getting 40% as opposed to the usual 70‑30 split.
Wilder retained his title after a split decision draw with Fury last month and the WBC quickly sanctioned a direct rematch.
When the two fighters battled to a disputed decision last month in Los Angeles, Wilder scored two knockdowns but Fury beat the 10‑count both times.
