Tyson Fury net worth: How much is Fury worth ahead of Deontay Wilder rematch?

Tyson Fury bids to become a world champion once again when he steps into the ring with Deontay Wilder for a second time. The Gypsy King is a former WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight title-holder.

Ahead of the rematch with Wilder, Fury’s boxing record stands at 30 fights, 29 wins (20 by knockout) and one draw.

His sole draw came from his bout with Wilder in December 2018.

“The biggest mistake I made last time was not making him [Wilder] pay when he was hurt,” said Fury.

“I didn’t know what I had in the tank last time. I’d never done 12 rounds {in my comeback}. It’s a long time.

“This time, I know I can do the distance and we’re not getting hurt.

“I’ll throw everything but the kitchen sink at him and he won’t know what hit him.”

Tyson Fury fan predictions

One wrote on Twitter: “If I was Fury I would smother Wilder and work inside, don’t give him punching room, he will stop him if he does.

“Wilder chins you at the end of his punches, kill his space and Fury will grind him down and stop him. The closer you are to wilder the safer. Fury win TKO round 10.”

Another commented: “Gonna be tough for Fury to go all 12 without getting at least knocked down once. But.

“He’s proven after a 3 year layoff he could take the shots and he beat him 10 of 12 rounds. Fury wins in decision.”

A third added: “Deontay can get a KO at any point with a good right connection but I’m going with Tyson Fury just because he’s a more technical fighter. I don’t think he gets KO’d. He wins it by decision.

“Man did get knocked down last fight and got back up but I don’t think he going down this time.”
