Tyson Fury's fortune rises from £6m to £40m in just one year…and set to skyrocket even more after Anthony Joshua fightMarch 29, 2021
TYSON FURY’S fortune has risen by almost £34million over the past year, according to new figures.
The Gypsy King, 32, and Anthony Joshua have recently penned their contract to unify the heavyweight division.
That £200m deal will lead to another mega payday for the WBC champion, but his bank balance has seen a dramatic rise since he defeated Deontay Wilder for the belt last February.
Accounts for his company Tyson Fury Limited show they have rocketed from £6.6m to £40.05m.
But despite the mega earnings, the much-loved boxer paid himself a tiny dividend of just £2,000, compared to £40,000 the year before.
Fury, who has took delivery of three giant TVs and a hot tub this week, holds assets of nearly £48m with £28m held in cash.
But he is left with just over £40m after credits of £7.5m are paid.
The earnings for the company cover the 12 months to the end of March last year.
Therefore they include some of his mega bucks money earned from his rematch with Wilder, which saw him climb back to the top of the mountain in Las Vegas when knocking out the Bronze Bomber.
Fury earned £3.62m for the fight, but will have earned much more in sponsorship and promotional deals.

The fighter and his wife Paris are also expecting their sixth child together – which will cap off what he hopes will be a perfect 2021.
Last month it was revealed that his rival Joshua had seen his company fortune rise by £60m to £109m.
Fury and Joshua are set to meet in the ring later this year in what would be the biggest heavyweight match in years, with a huge pay day for both fighters.
AJ’s Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn is warming to the idea of Wembley hosting the clash — if Saudi Arabia go cold on the summer showdown.
He insists the first leg of the signed two-fight rivalry must happen in June or July this year.
But the 100°F heatwave that hits the Middle East at that time is turning the kingdom off the idea of coughing up the huge site fee for the world heavyweight clash.
Hearn will spend the week flying around the world canvassing offers from the Gulf, Asia and America and has just three weeks to confirm the venue and date.
And he admitted there could be a chance for the biggest fight in British boxing history to happen at the home of English football.
Hearn said: “I am not joking when I talk about Wembley.
“If we got a huge site fee from abroad for a December rematch and they could give us full capacity at Wembley this summer, then we could present it to the fighters.
“But we can only consider Wembley with 100 per cent capacity.”
