Tyson Fury successfully defended his WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight belts against fellow Englishman Dillian Whyte before a crowd of 94,000 at Wembley Stadium.

His conclusive victory on Saturday night not only sealed his position as the best heavyweight fighter in the world with a fight record of 32-0-1 with 23 knockouts, he also increased his stock as a top earner among athletes.

Tyson Fury: Champion earner

Forbes Magazine had reported that in 2020 alone, Fury earned $57 million- $50 million from fight prizes, and the rest from endorsements.

Aside from fight purses, which are his primary source of earnings, there is also the payout from pay-per-view to consider.

The 33-year-old also has other income streams, including royalties from his book, entitled “Behind the Mask: My Autobiography”.

The book was launched in Nov. 2019 and became a number one bestseller on Amazon within 24 hours of its release. His second book, entitled “The Furious Method” has also met with commercial success.

Fury has landed several endorsement deals, and had a tie-up with WWE, where he received a multi-million dollar payment for an event appearance. He also has his own brand of energy drinks called Furocity Energy.

In 2019, he signed a $100 million agreement with ESPN, which was meant to cover his next five fights at the time.

All these ventures have added to the immense value that the fighter already enjoys.

Tyson Fury: Multi-millionaire

Before his fight with Whyte, estimates of his net worth ranged from a relatively modest $50 million to a mammoth $150 million. With the purse from his sixth-round victory on Saturday, he added $33.6 million to his account.

Fury has hinted at retirement after the matchup with Whyte, but if he does choose to step into the ring again, it probably won’t be because he needs the financial reward.
