After a lot of chaos in the heavyweight division, ‘The Gypsy King’ is finally going to lock horns with his former rival Dereck Chisora. The duo has met twice before in the ring and exhibited a slugfest.

Before announcing this fight, Fury was planning to produce the biggest British heavyweight clash. However, his rival Anthony Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn could not match Fury’s demand.

Therefore, Fury, after losing all hope regarding Joshua’s fight, turned his attention toward the Chisora trilogy. Before heading into this event, he announced an offer that could let him open the doors into another sport as a mogul.

When this information circulated on Twitter, it caught fans’ attention.

A fan wrote, “The 10k off Frank should cover it.”

Another fan wrote, “conquered the boxing world, now he’s heading to soccer.”

“Has he given that charity his purse yet?? Or…..”, another fan wrote.

“Fury is a good guy, he brings up his whole community so everyone wins. Big up the Gypsy King”, another fan wrote.

“I completely 100% believe what he has said to be absolutely true, no doubts”, another fan wrote.

Among one of the highest-paid boxers of this generation, Fury has enough wealth to close this deal. According to the report, the Morecambe Football Club is worth $5.2 million.
