Tyson Fury has revealed how much he really made against Francis Ngannou and it's a mind-blowing amount.
He got dropped before earning a split-decision victory after getting the judges' nod on the scorecards.
The former UFC heavyweight champion banked more in one night of boxing against the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' than he did in his entire MMA career.
He pocketed a reported £8 million, revealing: "It’s at least more than everything that I have earned in my life, in my career."
Fury, on the other hand, earned a LOT more than Ngannou.
Speaking after his launch press conference for his undisputed clash against Oleksandr Usyk, he stated that he made 'nearly £50 million' for his fight against Ngannou.
Fury will be in line for another mega payday when he takes on Usyk next year.
The blockbuster bout is set for February 17 and is part of Riyadh Season.
The 35-year-old took aim at the Ukrainian during the pre-fight presser as he referenced his victory over Wladimir Klitschko.
"You're welcome to be sharing a ring with the future undisputed heavyweight champion - me," he said. "You are all dossers, he's getting knocked out, and you two [Krassyuk and Klimas] are going to be working for me carrying my bags, so remember I said that on this stage.
"I already relieved one Ukrainian of all the belts and I'll relieve that idiot of all the belts I gave him, including that Ring Magazine I only vacated last year so I could win it back three times, sausage.
"You know what's coming, you're getting smashed to pieces. You're fighting the best British heavyweight there's ever been. You beat all the rest of them, but you ain't beat Tyson Fury, sausage."
Will Fury walk away from Saudi Arabia as the undisputed world heavyweight champion? Let us know.
