Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora: How much are they getting paid for heavyweight title fight?
| Last updated
Tyson Fury takes on Derek Chisora for the third time for the WBC world heavyweight championship at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. How much will each fighter earn from the bout?
The Gypsy King has taken on Chisora twice before - the first time in a 2011 fight for the British and Commonwealth titles where Fury won by a substantial points victory.
Three years later the pair fought again - that time Chisora was retired by his corner in the 10th round.
Now a 38-year-old Chisora is having his third crack at the undefeated Fury, having lost three of his last four fights and suffered 12 defeats in a 45-bout career.
Here’s how much both fighters will be paid for the clash.
Fury vs Wilder: Purse
Fury can demand an enormous sum of money for his fights, as one of the biggest names in boxing.
SportsZion claims Fury will be getting a guaranteed purse of $25 million (£20million) on the night, along with an 80% PPV share. In turn, the fighter’s total purse amounted to $36.5 million (£29.75million).
Meanwhile, Chisora will be getting a handsome payday, having taken on the bout after several other competitors were unable to make the December 3 fight.
In October 2022 Fury revealed how much his opponent would be making on the night - £2million.
When sarcastically offering to become Chisora’s manager, the 34-year-old said: “The man [Anthony Joshua] is a coward and I’m just going to keep torturing him, until he actually has the balls to fight.
“Listen, you should let me manage you, I’m the man who has got you this two million quid, me, not AJ [Joshua] and I’ll do it for free. I won’t take a tenner off of you, because I like to help people out for nothing. Free of charge, for old time’s sake, let me manage you.”
