All eyes on 24 July in the boxing world will be firmly focused on the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will go head-to-head once again with Deontay Wilder. In the recent pre-fight press conference Wilder stated that 'blood will be shed' as the fighters came face-to-face in an odd press conference ahead of their July 24 trilogy fight in Las Vegas.

Fury (30-0-1) first fought former long-time heavyweight champion Wilder (42-1-1) to a draw in 2018 and took the WBC title from him in a rematch in February 2020 with a seventh-round stoppage.

A shirtless and upbeat Fury said that he has added one-punch knockout power to his arsenal and would flatten the American when the bell rings at T-Mobile Arena.

Fury's worth

Forbes claimed last June that the Manchester born fighter is worth some 57 million dollars with this figure set to increase after the expected financial bonanza from the forthcoming third fight against Wilder despite seeing a dip in 2020 income levels.

The boxer's bank balance was boosted over the past two years following his 2019 bouts against Tom Scwarz and Otto Wallin along with his WWE debut when he was pitted against Brawn Strowman. His pre-covid bout against Wilder was also instrumental in generating revenue with The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas fight registering an impressive 1.2 million pay-per-view purchases alone in the United States.

The 'Gypsy King' has accrued 50 million from the sport with an additional seven million from added endorsements.
