Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte Fight Purse, Payouts, Salaries: How Much Will The Fighters Make?

Tyson Fury is set to fight Dillian Whyte to defend his WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles. Wembley Stadium, London, will host the fight at 2 PM ET on April 23. A record crowd of 94,000 fans is expected to enjoy the match live from the stadium.

According to Fury, it might be the final fight of his 14-year career. While a few fans believe that Fury will walk away like a king with 31-0-1, 22 KOs, many fans think Fury will not retire, and he is just creating some hype for the title bout.

This is the first time in the last 2 years where Fury is fighting anyone else other than former champion Deontay Wilder. Previously, Fury won and retained the Title against Wilder on February 22, 2020, and October 9, 2021. So, this fight will be a big hit for Fury and Whyte.

On the other hand, Whyte is an excellent opponent of Fury. He will enter the ring with a 28-2 record. His last fight was in March 2021 against Alexander Povetkin, which was a win for Dillian. So, he will join the bout with full confidence.

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren won one of the biggest purse bids in boxing history after he bid for $41m (£31.8m). Fury is expected to bank $29m (£22.9m), and white will earn around $7.4million (£5.5million).

The total purse will be split into an 80-20 ratio. As Fury is the defender, he negotiates the purse with the opponent. And both fighters agreed to the terms that Fury would take 80% of the purse and Whyte would take 20%. On top of that, the winner will earn a 10% cash deposit, which is approximately $4.1million (£3.1million).

However, these payouts don’t include any deduction for some classified items such as licenses, insurance, and taxes. In addition to that, PPV cuts are also not calculated here. Further, the PPV payout and other incentive payments will be added later after the event is finished. Hence, the fighters will earn more which we will update upon the disclosure from the organizer.
