Fury to earn $26 million for the rematch with Wilder
More than £20 million, or about $26 million, according to the Daily Mail, Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) will earn for his rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs).
Fury and Wilder first crossed their gloves in December last year. The fight, in which the Englishman had the advantage, but the American sent him to the canvas twice, ended in a draw. For the first fight Fury earned 7 million pounds, which, as he claims, he donated to charity.
The second fight for Wilder and Fury for the championship title of the royal division will be held on May 18 in Brooklyn or Las Vegas.
