Tyson Fury is the WBC World Heavyweight Champion and he competed against Deontay Wilder on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tyson Fury was also possibly caught cheating using gloves.
After a very long back and forth boxing match that featured Deontay Wilder knocking Tyson Fury down twice during the fourth round, it was Tyson Fury who won the boxing match after he defeated Deontay Wilder in the 11th round.
Now it seems Tyson Fury has landed himself in hot water after a video of him using the n-word was re-posted all over social media. Fury could be seen singing along with The Notorious B.I.G, especially the lyrics “If you don’t know, now you know, n****.”
Many fans were naturally surprised at this and took to social media to voice their opinion.
According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), the boxing stars have a guaranteed purse of five million dollars. According to Dan Rafael of ESPN, Fury and Wilder would both likely receive more than $25 million for their boxing match.
As stated by the report, the trilogy fight would involve a 60/40 purse split in favor of ‘The Gypsy King’.
Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder III purse split will be 60/40 in Fury’s favour. This was already set out in the two-fight deal for their second/third bouts. Second fight was a 50/50 split and the trilogy is 60/40 to the winner, which was Fury.
Fury also said the following:
“Like the great John Wayne said, I’m made of pig, iron and steel, baby! I took some big shots but my lord and savior helped me up and kept me going. It was a great fight tonight and it’s worthy of any trilogy in the history of the sport
