TYSON FURY is back in the ring as he takes on Derek Chisora in an all-British affair for the third time.
The Brit beat Dillian Whyte in his last clash at Wembley Stadium before retiring… and coming out of retirement, for his clash with Del Boy.
Tyson Fury remains WBC heavyweight championAnd expect more colour and fireworks for Fury’s return to the UK when he fights Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
What is Tyson Fury’s net worth?
Tyson Fury’s net worth following his fight against Whyte was estimated at around £130MILLION.
That is on top of his three fights against Deontay Wilder, in which Fury accumulated most of his wealth. The third fight landed him around £22m.
The Gypsy King also made a cool £12m from his single WWE appearance, when he was victorious over Braun Strowman.
And this figure will have increased significantly following his second win over the man from Alabama.
Fury has so much money that he’s even thinking about buying Morecambe Football Club.
The 6ft 9in behemoth lives close to Morecambe Bay and spoke about the chance to get his local club from their position at the bottom of League One, to all the way up in the Premier League.
“I’m thinking about buying Morecambe Football Club, they’re in League One at the moment,” he said at the news conference for Fury vs Chisora.
“So I was thinking I invest X amount of millions in them.
“Yeah, basically throw it at them and keep them going up.
“I’ve been offered to buy Morecambe Football Club.
“I own all the training facilities anyway and the training gym. So who knows? You might be looking at a football club owner.”
How much did Fury earn from beating Wilder?
The purse for the Fury vs Wilder trilogy bout was reportedly split 60/40 in Fury’s favour.
The Gypsy King was expected to earn a guaranteed £22m plus 60 per cent of the pay per view revenue.
Wilder was set to earn a guaranteed £15m plus 40 per cent of the PPV take.
In their last fight, there was a reported purse of £3.67m, with both fighters ultimately taking home around £18.36m once PPV revenue was added.
How much did Fury earn from his fight against Whyte?
Fury made at least £25m from his Wembley fight against Dillian Whyte.
That figure would’ve risen after PPV sales and gate receipts for the mega-event were tallied up too.
How much could Fury earn from a fight with Anthony Joshua?
If Fury fights Joshua one day, there would be a huge pot of money for that fight to take place, but less so than the £150m that was at stake over the summer of 2021.
The pair nearly came to terms on another massive fight this year before Fury ultimately agreed a deal with Chisora.
