Things just seem to be getting better for Tyson Fury. The heavyweight champion would’ve missed out on many big fights and excellent paydays if he decided to stay retired. But as has become a type of tradition for the boxer, he decided to come back within a short interval, and his income statements will probably justify his decisions.
Recently Tyson performed his obligatory tax filings and sport accountancy expert Kieran Maguire revealed on Twitter some details as to how the British Champion’s finances from April 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022 period look like. Spoiler alert! It was a really good year for the boxing goat.

Fury had his comeback match against Dillian Whyte on April 24, 2022. Tyson won this match via knockout and went on to take home the biggest purse in not only his but boxing’s history as well. A jaw-dropping £25 million was awarded to him while the first-time world title challenger DIllian got to take away only £5.5m and a loss by TKO.
‘The Gypsy King’s second comeback match was scheduled to be held against ‘Del Boy War’ Derek Chisora. The two had previously fought in greatly competitive matches even though Tyson picked up the W in all those scenarios. But this time around, Fury was pretty much the only aggressor as Derek took a beating for 10 rounds until the fight was stopped.
For this match, The 34-year-old got paid around £21m while his opponent Chisora only managed to get £2m. After the fight, the reigning champion already had his eyes set on his next opponent who was present at the cage side. Fury had a three-sided faceoff between himself, Oleksandr Usyk, and Joe Joyce.
Now Usyk and Fury are looking to duke it out in the ring for 2023 while Anthony Joshua inches further away from the gold. Tyson is currently missing out on the handsome royalties that he received for performing and even appearing in the WWE as the Brit faces a ban from entering the United States owing to his connection with the alleged high-ranking KOCG member, Daniel Kinahan.
Such issues won’t bother the Brit much as Kieran puts it, “Successful year for Tyson Fury Ltd which made a £13m net profit to 31 March 2022 and finished the year with £43m in the bank.” How much money do you think Tyson will make in 2023?
