Tyson Fury's huge purse for Deontay Wilder rematch revealed


Tyson Fury will reportedly earn £20million from his rematch with Deontay Wilder .

The Brit is set to take on the heavyweight world champion for a second time on May 18 in New York.

The pair fought to a controversial draw in Los Angeles last December with Fury denied victory despite climbing off the canvas twice.

And according to the Daily Mail , Fury will bank three times the £7m he earned last year.

The former unified champion claims he donated his entire purse to charity.

“I did give away my last purse but I don’t do charity work for a pat on the back,” he said in a Q&A session last weekend.

“I do it to help people but I do not want praise for it, I don’t want to be called a do-gooder.”

Fury and Wilder are expected to clash at Madison Square Garden with an annoucement due shortly.

Purse bids were scheduled for last week but were delayed until Wednesday to allow both sides to come to an agreement.
