Tyson Fury, dubbed “The Gypsy King,” is the WBC heavyweight champion and a very colorful character. Fury won the title by defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 but fell into depression and suffered the effects of substance abuse, failing to defend the belts he won.

The 6ft9 boxer was reported to have weighed more than 400 pounds during the dark times.

Fury, 35, came back in good form in 2018 and went on to win the WBC title in 2020.

His story, coupled with his talent, has served to push his net worth to astronomical levels. Fury’s career record is 34-0-1 with 24 of those victories coming via knockout.

Tyson Fury Net Worth

Tyson Fury’s net worth is estimated to be more than $60 million, although some reports suggest that the number is closer to a massive $200 million stash.

Fury, though at an advanced age for a professional fighter, is poised for another year or two of elite income.

His fight with Oleksandr Usyk in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, scheduled for May 18, 2024, carries the potential for a $50 million-plus purse and additional earnings.

It’s also going to be big business for the best online sportsbooks, which are currently offering markets on the fight.

Salary & Career Earnings

Tyson Fury was making between $3 million and $7 million for his fights before 2015, when his career was derailed by depression and drug problems.

Fury’s salary for his fights increased with success, as his comeback gained traction with a draw against Deontay Wilder in 2018 in a bid for the WBC heavyweight belt.

Fury’s guaranteed purse, $3 million, was complemented by the approximate $10 in Pay-Per-View (PPV) bonuses.

Naturally, the rematch drew more money for both fighters: Fury’s guarantee was $5 million, with another $25 million for his share of the PPV deal. Fury won that fight and agreed to a third meeting with Wilder.

Again, as global interest grew, the money followed. Fury knocked out Wilder and pulled in a combined haul of close to $30 million.

A pair of fights in 2022 gained Fury another $25 million-plus per fight, and his most recent outing – a non-title fight against MMA star Francis Ngannou – guaranteed Fury $50 million before PPV bonuses.

Tyson Fury’s career earnings are now estimated to be in the high nine figures, perhaps even more.

Tyson Fury Earnings from Oleksandr Usyk Fight

Tyson Fury is set to fight top rival, WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on May 18, 2024.

Fury’s promoter, the legendary Bob Arum, said Fury would make more than $100 million for this fight.

The Fury-Usyk contract agreement includes a two-way rematch clause, which means no matter who emerges victorious there will be a sequel – one likely to provide even higher dollar amounts for each.

In 2022, Fury launched a set of energy drinks he calls Furocity Energy – a clever play on Fury’s last name –  aimed to carve out some market share from Red Bull, Monster Energy, and similar brands.

Conclusion

Tyson Fury, after all his challenges, troubles and tribulations, has emerged as a market force and now threatens to become the highest-earning heavyweight boxer in history.

His recent eight-figure purses and the immediate schedule of the fights against Oleksandr Usyk figure to drive his per-fight earnings to more than $100 million per contest.

Fury knows he’s on the path to super riches, targeting Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo’s earnings – both signed lucrative soccer deals with Saudi Arabia in recent years – as numbers to topple in the coming years.
