Tyson Fury Net Worth: Brief Bio

Fury has been a fighter from the very first day he was born. And I say that in literal terms because the 6-foot-9 heavyweight was born three months prematurely.

As a result, Tyson weighed only 1 pound during his birth, which meant that his survival chances were incredibly low.

Fury during his first year

Soon after his birth, Fury’s father, John Fury, named him Tyson in honor of then heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. The reason being that just like Mike, John wanted his son to overcome the obstacles he faced during his premature birth.

Like Iron Mike, the undefeated boxer overcame his illness to become the best heavyweight of his era. Returning to the subject, the Manchester native started boxing when he was 10 years old.

Subsequently, Fury rose through the amateur ranks with an impressive record of 31 wins and four losses.

Soon after his ABA Super-Heavyweight title win in 2008, Tyson decided to turn pro, and what followed is the stuff of dreams.

For instance, the Manchester-born boxer won his first seven fights via knockouts. Consequently, the 6-foot-9 heavyweight earned a reputation in the boxing world as being a knockout artist.

Fury lands a left jab on Klitschko.

However, his rise to the top began with the win over Wladimir Klitschko. What’s even more impressive is that Klitschko was undefeated for 10 years before his fight with Fury.

As a result, nobody believed that Tyson could beat the great Wladimir.

On the contrary, the Manchester native dominated the fight as he defeated Klitschko via a unanimous decision. Consequently, it seemed like Tyson had a fantastic future waiting for him.

However, the undefeated fighter fell into a depression soon after, citing he had nothing to live for after defeating Wladimir.

As a result, Tyson was absent from the boxing ring for nearly three years. Just like during his birth, Fury overcame the obstacles and won his next four fights until he met Deontay Wilder.

As we all know, Wilder vs. Fury turned out to be one of the most controversial fights as the bout was declared a draw.

Almost all the viewers thought that Tyson had dominated the match, but the judges felt different when it came to scoring.

Nevertheless, the Gypsy King decided for a motivation to become even better. Thus, when the two fighters met again on 22 February 2020, Tyson vowed not to let the fight go to the judge’s hand.

And, staying true to his promise, Fury knocked out the then-undefeated Deontay in the seventh round to become the WBC, The Ring and Lineal Heavyweight Champion of the world.

Soon after the bout, it was revealed that the loser of the fight would get to activate a rematch clause. And that is what happened as Wilder activated his rematch clause with Fury.

There is no exact date for the bout but promoter, Bob Arum stated that the fight would take place before the deadline of 18 July.

So, stay tuned as we will update the exact date of the fight as soon as it is revealed.

Tyson Fury Net Worth: Career Earnings & Fight Purse

If you are the top-ranked heavyweight fighter in the world, then you are bound to be paid millions for each fight.

And that is the case with Fury as he is probably the best heavyweight of his generation.

As a result, Tyson has a net worth of $40 million, mainly due to his in-ring activities.

However, things were not always rosy for the 32-year-old as back in 2018, fury’s bank account showed a balance of just £56,000.

Contrarily, the Manchester-born boxer’s net worth rose considerably to £4.9 million following his wins against Albanian Sefer Seferi and Italian Francesco Pianeta.

Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 1

However, after his first fight against Deontay Wilder, it was reported that Fury took home £2.3 million as his fight purse.

Also, Tyson earned a cut of the PPV buys, after which his earnings rose to £7 million. Now, that’s a sum fitting for the best boxer in the heavyweight division.

Soon after his scandalous draw with Wilder, the 32-year-old negotiated a five-fight contract with ESPN and Top Rank in the region of £80 million.

Subsequently, it was announced that Fury would be facing then-undefeated Tom Schwarz inside MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

The fight turned out to be relatively easy for the Gypsy King as he won the bout in the second round via TKO. Consequently, Tyson earned an eye-watering $12.5 million for his fight with Tom.

After that, the Manchester-born heavyweight faced another undefeated fighter, Otto Walin. And, just like 29 times before Fury won the fight, this time via unanimous decision.

As a result of his troubles, Tyson bagged a cool £12 million due to his contract with ESPN and Top Rank.

However, the undefeated heavyweight’s biggest payday came at the rematch between the two unbeaten fighters, Fury and Deontay.

Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 2

To illustrate, Tyson earned $5 million as his fight purse, which did not include his share of the PPV buys.

In fact, after taking his cut of the PPV, the Gypsy King bagged a staggering $30 million for his win against Wilder.

Furthermore, a third fight has already been signed, with the undefeated heavyweight set to take home 60% of the PPV buys along with his fight purse.

Thus, his trilogy fight against Deontay will definitely be his biggest payday to date.

Tyson Fury Net Worth: House & Cars

Usually, most boxers tend to live their life privately and like to drive simple cars.

But, not Tyson because the undefeated heavyweight has an extensive collection of high-end supercars that even billionaires would be jealous of.

Fury with his brand new Ferrari Portofino

For instance, Fury bought a £166,000 red Ferrari Portofino to add to his vast collection, including £282,000 brand-new custom-made Rolls Royce Dawn.

Additionally, Fury purchased a Range Rover Sport SVR as a gift to himself for making his boxing return. Likewise, the jeep set him back $114,500, but that is nothing compared to his £240,000 Ferrari GTC 4 Lusso.

Furthermore, Fury’s car collection doesn’t just end there because the Manchester-born fighter is the proud owner of a classic Rolls Royce.

But, wait, that’s not all because Tyson also boasts a host of Range Rovers in white, grey, and camouflage colors. I guess the Gypsy King chooses to drive those Rovers according to his mood for the day.

In addition to his extensive assembly of cars, Fury also owns several real estate in various countries.

To explain, Tyson currently lives in his family home, which overlooks Morecambe Bay that set him back $4 million. Recently, the Manchester-born fighter renovated his family house, which cost him £500,000.

Furthermore, Tyson claimed that he bought a giant mansion in one of Marbella’s top tourist destinations.

In fact, the house looks more like a mini castle than a residential home due to its extravagant size. Thus, no one should be surprised that Fury paid £6 million for the mansion cum castle.

Tyson Fury Net Worth: Business Endeavours & Endorsements

Famously, the Manchester-born fighter had an ongoing saga in the WWE with the “Monster Among Men,” Braun Strowman.

The feud started back on 4 October 2019 and culminated at the WWE Crown Jewel, which took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Consequently, Fury earned an eye-watering $15 million for his troubles as he won the fight via a count-out.

Wouldn’t we love it if someone paid us $15 million to act for one day? Well, I certainly would, and I’m pretty sure that all you guys would as well. Now that is what I call easy money.

Furthermore, Fury has an endorsement deal with Lund Group, but the contract’s exact details remain undisclosed.

Contrarily, judging by the millions he earns for each of his fights, I am incredibly confident that the Gypsy King demands a seven-figure sum from Lund Group.

Similarly, the Manchester-born boxer has a sponsorship deal with Marbella, which sells real estate in the United Kingdom.

Also, Fury recently launched his own line of lotion named Easy Stroke. But, we cannot provide you with further details on this matter as it is highly sensitive.

However, if you want to learn for yourself, you guys are more than welcome to visit Tyson’s Instagram page.

Tyson Fury Net Worth: Charity Work

It is a well-known fact that Tyson is an extremely religious person who believes in helping other people. For example, Fury donated all of his £7 million fight purse from the first Wilder fight to Charity.

Similarly, while speaking to the LA Fire Department members, Tyson vowed to donate his entire purse to UK-based charities to build homes for drug and alcohol addicts. And during a fan meet in Britain, Tyson said,

“I did give away my last purse but I don’t do charity work for a pat on the back. I do it to help people but I do not want praise for it, I don’t want to be called a do-gooder.”

It is a well-known fact that Fury suffered from depression and even thought of suicide at one stage.

Therefore to help other people with the same problems, the undefeated heavyweight became an ambassador for the Frank Bruno Foundation, helping people with mental illness.

In conclusion, Tyson is not only a champion inside the boxing ring but off it as well. If there ever was a candidate who perfectly fits the cliche of “People’s Champ,” then it is Tyson Fury, aka the Gypsy King.

Tyson Fury Net Worth: Wife & Family

The 32-year-old fighter is married to his teenage sweetheart Paris Fury. The couple solidified their love in a lavish wedding that took place back in 2008.

Likewise, the event was held in Chains Catholic Church in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, which included more than 300 guests.

Initially, the couple met through a mutual friend when Tyson was 17 and Paris was 15. However, their relationship did not come to fruition until another year when they met again by a stroke of luck.

By chance, the Manchester native happened to be present at a birthday party. Amazingly, the celebrations were for Paris’ 16th birthday. And the rest, as most people say, is history.

At the time of writing, the beautiful couple is blessed with two daughters Valencia Amber and Venezuela Amber. The pair also has three sons, Prince John JamesPrince Tyson Fury II, and Prince Adonis Amaziah.

All in all, the Fury bunch is one of the most close-knitted families one could have. Although Tyson and Paris have had some difficulties in the past, they have always risen through those hard times.

As a result, their bond is unbreakable and one that every married couple should aspire to be.
