As of 2021, Fury has amassed an astonishing record of 21 wins by TKO in  31 fights. The only fight that Fury didn't win was his first matchup against The Bronze Bomber, which ended in a stalemate.

However, his stupefying performance earned him a rematch in which Tyson Fury comically licked the blood off of Deontay Wilder's neck. Towards the end of the first fight, Fury emerged from the ashes like a phoenix and claimed the title for himself.

Tyson Fury: Net Worth 2021

Money has never been at the top of Fury's mind. However, no one in their right mind will turn incoming big bucks down. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Fury's net worth is estimated to be $30 million in 2021.

The psychological problems led Fury down a dark path. The path ended with alcoholism, recreational drug use, and excessive weight gain. These problems pushed the first domino, razing his entire career. 2016 saw Fury vacate the WBA, WBO, and IBO titles.

The Ring stripped him of his last remaining title in 2018. In addition, he faced anti-doping charges. Many claimed that Fury's career was over and there was no way for him to make a comeback.
