  • A rare clause states that he has to pay some of his earnings to a certain cause 
  • Fury and Usyk will meet on May 18 in a bid to become the unified champion  

Tyson Fury's reported purse for his undisputed heavyweight bout against Oleksandr Usyk this month has been revealed. 

The Gypsy King will face off against Usyk on May 18 in Riyadh in a bid to become the first unified heavyweight world champion in 24 years. 

While Usyk is the IBF, WBO, and IBO title holder, Fury is the incumbent WBC champion.

With both fighters still unbeaten after immense professional careers it is no surprise that the finances involved are jaw-dropping. 

Fury is reportedly contracted to earn 70 per cent of the the total purse, according to The Independent.

Tyson Fury needs a NUTRITIONIST to 'step in' after revealing shock new-look before facing off with Oleksandr Usyk in undisputed heavyweight title fight, warns Carl Froch

He'll need a creative mind to work out how to spend that sum - perhaps he could refund most of the transfer fee his beloved Manchester United paid for Antony in 2022.

However, he will have to donate £1m of his earnings to Ukraine, Usyk's homeland, amid the invasion of Russia.

That requirement is stiuplated in his fight contract. 

The unification fight was originally scheduled for February 17 but was postponed after Fury suffered a nasty gash above his eye while sparring, requiring 15 stitches. 

Fury has undergone a massive transformation as he trains for the titanic bout against Usyk, 37.

His strength and conditioning coach Kristian Blacklock said Fury was in the best shape of his life ahead of the Usyk fight - claiming he was 'stronger and leaner' than ever before.

Fury shared his body transformation online after the postponement was announced, posting a photo of himself standing in front of the mirror during his camp in Saudi Arabia.

The Gypsy King looked considerably leaner than when he fought against former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in October 2023.

Fury - who told Mail Sport he would always be fat during an interview ahead of the Francis Ngannou fight last year - could be seen tensing his abs in the mirror selfie.

Carl Froch, however, thinks a 'nutritionist needs to step in' after seeing his significant weight loss.  

But the trimmed-down Wythenshawe star recently insulted Usyk by claiming he could still beat him if he weighed 25 stone and drank 15 pints of Peroni beforehand.

Fury gloated: 'I think if I didn't train at all for this camp, I just come in at 25 stone and sank maybe 15 pints of Peroni beforehand, then the next day, going there, what's he gonna do? Do you even jab me around?

'Take nothing away from him, but he couldn't do anything with Derek Chisora.

'We all saw that fight and let's not be deluded with it, it was a 50-50 fight, it could have gone either way!

'So not unless he's come on at 38, 39 years old in the last two years leaps and bounds. This guy's gonna do me in a round? I don't think so.  

'If I'm going in for a real ding-dong, I'll need at least 15 pints of Peroni. At least!'
