Professional boxers are infamous for the sizable checks they cash in – solely from the boxing fights they’re in. This is particularly true for infamous top tier boxers. One of them is the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. Fury took home staggering $27 million from his fight against challenger Deontay Wilder. Unlike many other professional boxers The Gypsy King is very modest and tries to be smart with his money.
According to a report by The Sun the 33-year-old boxer took roughly $97,000 in dividends from his company, Tyson Fury Ltd. The firm’s documents were filed and reveal the figures that run through 2021.
Tyson Fury has only taken £70,000 ($97k) in dividends, up from £68,000 in 2020.
Even though he is a well-known trash talker in front of the cameras, Fury is a loving father and husband. Sources say that Fury is a type of person who is very careful in using his money and he values his family so much. Recently, Fury invested $2.3 million into a new home in Morecambe, United Kingdom for him and his family.

Tyson Fury holds the WBC title and The Ring title as the unofficial king of the division. He is expected to defend his heavyweight title against the interim champion Dillian Whyte this year.
Fury is willing to go out of his comfort zone for a good paycheck – back in 2019 he made his WWE debut beating Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. Known as the Gypsy King in the boxing ring, Fury branded himself the “Saudi Arabian King” following his match with Strowman. According to reports, WWE paid him £11.9 million ($15 million) for his participation.
