Tyson Fury is minting money at present. The Heavyweight boxing champion is the highest-paid combat athlete and ranked 11th overall for earnings between June 2019 to June 2020.
The Gypsy King boxed 3 matches (Tom Schwarz, Otto Wallin and Deontay Wilder) in this time period and made a whopping $50 million. However, as per his promoter Frank Warren, the WBC champion will demand the most lucrative contract in sports when he re-signs a co-promotional deal with Top Rank.
In a chat with Daily Mail, Warren said, “What Tyson Fury has done for not just boxing, but British sport, in general, is nothing short of out of this world. He could be awarded a trillion-dollar contract tomorrow and be worth every penny.”
“I’ve been fortunate enough to promote Tyson since his comeback and his focus on not just his own recovery. But on helping others, has been exemplary.”
Warren opened up on the Deontay Wilder fight in February
“Watching him destroy Deontay Wilder for the world title ranks among the greatest achievements by a British sportsman. I look forward to standing alongside him for the next chapter in his career. The biggest character in boxing deserves the biggest contract. It’s as simple as that.”
Earlier during an Instagram live session, the undefeated WBC Champion said, “I’m coming to the end of my contract with Top Rank. I have two more fights left with those guys, I want to renew it. I don’t want to just walk away after two more fights.”
“I’m 31 years old. Like Billy Keane said, “you better get out the dumpster truck and reverse it back into Tyson Fury’s bank account. Because that’s what he’s going to need.
“I want to get that big, major fight deal. I want to break all of the records, for a British fighter to go overseas and get the biggest signing record in history. With MTK Global, Top Rank, and Frank Warren, and all of the guys who help in between, we can make that happen.”
“I know that we can break history with the biggest fight contract in the history of boxing. Bigger than Floyd Mayweather, bigger than Canelo Alvarez, bigger than Mike Tyson, bigger than everybody.”
He concluded by promising to wipe out “two dossers” in Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.
