, Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte fight purse: How much are Fury and Whyte getting paid for Wembley fight?

TYSON FURY and Dillian Whyte are set for a huge Wembley battle later this month with the WBC heavyweight title up for grabs.

The Gypsy King hasn’t been in the ring since an 11th-round TKO over Deontay Wilder last October.

And Dillian Whyte hasn’t boxed in the year since his avenged KO victory against Alexander Povetkin in Gibraltar.

Both men will now clash in a money-spinning duel which will see the pair earn millions to fight in front of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium.

The fight is expected to do some serious business both at the gate and on pay-per-view.

Fury and Whyte have gone back and forth over money throughout the build-up, and you can expect more of that as the fight gets closer.

What is Tyson Fury’s purse?

The purse bid for Fury vs Whyte was won by Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions, who put forward a whopping £30.6million to hold the fight.

Per the WBC’s rules, 90 per cent of that fee goes to the champion, in this case Fury, with the remaining 20 per cent going to the challenger – Whyte.

So Fury’s official purse for the fight, before a potential bonus, is £22m.

Fury will also earn cash from ticket sales and pay-per-view revenue, with the fight set to be shown on BT Sport Box Office.

All in all, the WBC champ could earn over £35million.
