"I think it's about 70/30. 70 yes, 30 no," Till said.
"You gotta remember boxing to MMA is very different as well. He's making a lot of money, he's a top three heavyweight. I'd love to see it for the entertainment factor."
He also told BT that he had reservations over 'The Gypsy King's' commitment but was pleasantly surprised.
"I thought to myself, he's gonna come and learn a few techniques and that's it" the 26-year-old explained.
"He said to me when we were starting, 'I've come to train hard.' I was like 'Okay then.'
"He's come to train, he's gonna get some training. You've seen the video.
"So I said 'Tyson, I'm gonna teach you what I think you need to know about MMA.'

"You're considering this so I'll teach you what I think you need."
"We done a hard hour, I swear, a hard hour. And after he was chatting with me about the mental side of things, what he went through and stuff like that.
"I swear, that guy's got a rock solid mentality. Unbelievable mentality. I thought mine was strong. The stuff that came out of his mouth was next level."
The 26-year-old also joked that he would want a cut of any purse Fury makes on an MMA fight.
"It's all about the entertainment and whoever he gets - maybe Stipe wants to fight him and probably thinks he can box him, I don't think so."
But I hope so, maybe I'd be in on a little percentage of that as Coach Till. We're the same management, we're both MTK so no matter what I'm just supporting him, I'm supporting my team."
Do you think Fury will ever have an MMA fight?
