Reading the back and forth on Twitter between David Haye and Tyson Fury about purse splits to face each other, WBC #4 rated heavyweight contender Magomed “Mago” Abdusalamov (18-0, 18 KOs) has an easy deal to offer the #5, 6 and 7 contenders in his division.
“I’ll take an 80/20 purse split and I will take the 20% to fight either David Haye, Tyson Fury or Seth Mitchell,” says the Russian powerhouse. “In fact, says Abdusalamov, if I lose, I will give them my 20% and I will walk away happy, knowing I don’t deserve my ranking in the WBC.”
Abdusalamov, a pulverizing puncher who has dispatched all 18 of his professional opponents says he’s willing to forego all the negotiating and posturing being done between the fighters and offer his lower-rated counterparts a chance at a lucrative heavyweight showdown.
“David Haye says he’s having trouble getting Tyson Fury in a ring. He’ll have no trouble with me and he can take the lion’s share of the money. I am the future of heavyweight boxing and I’ll fight anyone to prove it.”
Abdusalamov’s promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing, says his phone is fully charged and waiting for a call.
