Tyson Fury Could Pocket More Than £20m From Deontay Wilder Rematch

Tyson Fury Could Pocket More Than £20m From Deontay Wilder Rematch

Tyson Fury will receive a hefty payday from a potential rematch with Deontay Wilder.

Negotiations for a rematch are currently under way, but while the bout has not been made official yet, there are reports suggesting that TV revenue from US pay-per-view will boost revenue above £50m.

According to the Daily Mail, the 30-year-old Brit could pocket at least £20m depending on how the purse for the fight is split.

In fact, the newspaper reports that the Gypsy King could take home more than £20m even if it was a 60-40 per cent split in favour of Wilder.

Fury recently confirmed that he had donated the reported £7m he made from the first fight with the 33-year-old American boxer to charity, backing up the promise he made before the initial bout took place on 1st December.

"I did give away my last purse, but I don't do charity work for a pat on the back," he said.

"I do it to help people, but I do not want praise for it, I don't want to be called a do-gooder."

Fury's promoter, Frank Warren, has been negotiating with Wilder's co-promoters, Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon, in New York City over the final contracts.

Following on from their first encounter, which ended in a controversial draw, Fury said that he thought he had suffered brain damage when the Bronze Bomber knocked him down to the canvas in the 12th round of the fight.

"I wasn't thinking anything, I nearly had brain damage!" he explained during the first night of his UK and Ireland tour.

"If there is any energy in me, I will always fight until the end. From a heavy knockdown, he then had 2:30 minus to finish me and he couldn't.
