Tyson Fury Net Worth
Tyson Fury has a $65 million fortune. That includes money from his April 2022 triumph over Dillon Whyte and a $28 million minimum guarantee from his February 2020 rematch with Deontay Wilder. He is a heavyweight who is best known for defeating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to win the unified heavyweight titles of the WBA (Super), IBF, IBO, WBO, and The Ring. Then, in December 2018, he and Deontay Wilder infamously drew.
Tyson Fury was born in August 1988 to Irish parents Amber and John in Wythenshawe, Manchester, England. He arrived one month early. His parents were informed by the doctors that their baby had a slim chance of surviving. John says this:
“The doctors informed me that his chances of survival were slim. I had already lost two prematurely born daughters in the same manner.”
Given that his child was a fighter and had survived the premature birth, John named him Tyson. Mike Tyson was the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world at the time Tyson was born. Only four of Tyson’s mother’s 14 offspring survived pregnancy. When Tyson was nine years old, his mother gave birth to a daughter who passed away just a few weeks later. The young Tyson was profoundly affected by the event. He started using boxing as an outlet for his rage. Up until 2011, when he was sentenced to prison, his father trained him and would continue to do so.
Fury was not given the opportunity to compete for Ireland at the Olympic Games, but after establishing his Belfast ancestry, he was given the opportunity to represent both Ireland and Great Britain. He won the ABA title in 2008 while still an amateur. When Fury defeated Bela Gyongyosi in December 2008, he made his professional boxing debut. His victory over John McDermott in November 2009 earned him the English Heavyweight championship. In June 2010, Fury fought McDermott once more to claim the vacant English Heavyweight championship.
