TYSON FURY has donated the £10,000 he won from Frank Warren to charity.
The Gypsy King won the money off his promoter over a bet they had about the proposed Anthony Joshua bout.
Fury was certain AJ and his team would not complete the deal and put his money where his mouth was by staking £10,000.
The fight collapsed so Warren paid up and Fury has now gifted his earnings to a charity called DEBRA, which helps people suffering from painful genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).
After a press conference to promote his upcoming clash with Derek Chisora on December 3, Fury was interviewed by journalist Myra Saeed, who has EB.
And once the questioning was complete Fury surprised Saeed by taking the £10,000 cash out of his bag and gifting it to her to donate to DEBRA.
Fury said: “£10,000 that I won off Frank Warren, and I want you to put this in your charity box, as a starter, okay?”
The money will go towards DEBRA’s ‘A Life Free of Pain’ appeal, which aims to develop treatments to stop pain for sufferers of EB.
Fury also gave advice on how to deal with physical and mental pain with DEBRA thanking both the fighter and Warren for helping to raise awareness.
The 34-year-old hinted that he would spend the money elsewhere when he collected his earnings but he has decided to put it to a good cause.

Fury said of the AJ bet: “I bet that Joshua wouldn’t sign the fight contract. Now, I’ve got £10k.
“Frank Warren said he would sign it and I said I bet you he won’t. There is the £10k (as he held up the money). It’s tax-free money too.
“You know where that’s going on the way home, don’t you.”
