You should only expect great things when you’re literally named after the great Mike Tyson. In this case, Tyson Fury has clearly surpassed expectations as he has asserted his dominance in the world of boxing as well, building up an impressive net worth in 2021 in the process.
Tyson Fury’s net worth in 2021 (estimate): $30 million
Fury’s dominance earned him the No. 34 spot on Forbes’ 2020 Celebrity 100 list and No. 11 spot on The World’s Highest-Paid Athletes list of 2020. His salary and winnings in 2020 amounted to a whopping $50 million. Particularly, he bagged half of that in one fight alone as he earned $26 million when he knocked out rival boxer Deontay Wilder in 2020.
Fury’s endorsements aren’t too shabby either as he accumulated $7 million as well for inking some deals with ESPN and Top Rank. This all put his total earnings to $57 million in 2020. That sum of money had him ahead of basketball superstar Russell Westbrook, tennis icon Serena Williams, actor Ben Affleck, rapper Jay-Z, celebrity Oprah Winfrey, and even Wilder. Therefore, we know he’s making serious bank as he rakes in more than some of the most famous personalities in the world today.
Fury also has quite the car collection, which features a Metallic Hummer H2, Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, Lamborghini Aventador, Range Rover, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Rolls-Royce Phantom, and a Ferrari Portofino. On the other hand, he doesn’t hoard his wealth for himself so much as he has explicitly stated in the past that he chooses to give a significant amount of his wealth to his team and to charity. What a guy.
However, the most impressive aspect of his wealth is the meteoric rise, rather than the monetary value itself. This puts it into perspective that Fury had a two-year absence from the sport due to mental health issues and drug bans. Accordingly, his bank balance was reported at only $71,000 back then. With that being said, this literally meant that he increased his wealth by almost 8,000% in just two years. Due to all the fat paydays, contracts, a WWE appearance, and even an autobiography, he was able to increase his bankroll exponentially in just a short amount of time.
Moreover, Tyson Fury is not done. He just announced a fight against Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia in August 2021 that’s going to be a cash cow. The site fee is reportedly in the range of $150 million, so Fury is going to make bank by just participating and would get even more if he wins the bout.
The Gypsy King has certainly worked hard for every single dollar throughout his entire life. Not only was he able to overcome adversity, but he was able to reach new heights of success when he returned to the ring. Of course, this also meant that his wealth followed suit as well.
Look for Tyson Fury to rake in even more cash for the years to come with the Joshua fight on deck in 2021 and likely more fights on the way in the future. The man is going to be rolling in the dough.
