One of the greatest boxers of his generation, Tyson Fury puts his unblemished record on the line against Dillian Whyte as the pair battle it out for the WBC and ‘The Ring’ heavyweight titles. The 31-0-1 superstar has hinted Saturday’s showdown at Wembley Stadium could be the last of his career, suggesting he has more than enough money in the bank
But just how much has the ‘Gypsy King’ stashed in his treasury over the years? Climbing from a first-round knockout win over Bala Gyongyosi in his Nottingham debut 14 years ago, he’ll headline a packed-out Wembley in one of the year’s must-watch fights.
Fury, 33, told BT Sport in March that he’ll have “earned over £100million” from fights following his bout with Whyte. The all-British affair promises to be the most lucrative of his career, too, with an 80 per cent share of the purse expected to add around $30million (£23m) to his bank balance.
His boxing career doesn’t account for his many other ventures, however, such as sales from his two books, merchandise or his recently released Furocity energy drink. It’s also believed the WWE paid Fury somewhere in the region of £12m for a handful of in-ring appearances against Braun Strowman in 2019.
