Tyson Fury Set To Pocket Career-Best Purse For Deontay Wilder Rematch

Tyson Fury Set To Pocket Career-Best Purse For Deontay Wilder Rematch

Tyson Fury is slated to pocket a career-high purse for his fight with Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas this Saturday.

Regardless of the result in the eagerly anticipated WBC world heavyweight title bout, the Gypsy King is guaranteed around £19 million according to The Mirror.

With the iconic MGM grand a 17,000 sell-out, as well as the fight being shown on Fox and ESPN on pay-per-view and BT Sport box office on the United Kingdom, that figure is estimated to almost double once everything is factored in.

Fury's promoter in the US, Top Rank's Bob Arum, said: "There are guarantees each fighter gets. It's a complete 50/50 deal between our promotion and Wilder's promotion.

"It's sold out in the Arena, so that's $16million less taxes. We also know the closed circuit sales are doing better than anyone anticipated.

"What we don't know is the English pay-per-view and the US pay-per-view.

"I've talked to Frank Warren, who's the co-promoter with Tyson Fury , and he believes the English pay-per-view, even at four in the morning, will be one million.

"If the pay-per-view hit two million here they would each get, I don't know what Wilder would get, but my guy would get well over $40million.

"What they end up with depends on the US and English pay-per-view."
