Tyson Fury claimed his brother Tommy Fury has an incredible net worth after he pocketed $10million (£8.3m) for his fight against YouTuber KSI.
Tommy beat KSI earlier this month by unanimous decision – after it was changed from a majority one when an error to a judges’ scorecard was corrected. Following the bout at the AO Arena in Manchester, Fury was reduced to tears claiming he is changing his family’s life.
After the fight, Fury, who is engaged to fellow Love Islander Molly-Mae Hague and have a daughter, Bambi, together, said: “I'm changing my family’s life, fight by fight, I am changing my little daughter’s life!"

And his brother Tyson revealed that he was doing exactly that, speaking to Ariel Helwani, the heavyweight world champion said: “Being brutally honest, the way that we always are. The fact that Tommy made $10m from the fight, he’s 24 years old, probably made $25m-$26m (£21.5m) out of his 10-fight career, it’s unbelievable.
“I’m very, very proud of where he’s come from. In 2018, Tommy didn’t have $10 for a bus pass. Today, Tommy’s got a hell of a lot of money, millions of dollars in his account. So, I’m very proud of him, he can buy what he wants. He’s got a $5m mansion, (Mercedes) G-Wagon, Lambos (Lamborghini), Rolex, the guy’s flying.

“Regardless of the fights, all these fights he’s had with Jake Paul and whoever else – it’s showbusiness. These fights KSI, Jake Paul, Logan Paul, Dillon Danis, all these guys, whoever these influencers are and YouTubers and all that, this is show business.
“This is bringing millions of eyes onto the boxing world, and the boxing world should be very appreciative of it. They could’ve picked any form to train for, they could’ve got MMA and MMA would’ve got all the views and all the eyes. But I’m happy that all these guys come into boxing, my chosen sport, and they’re bringing new fans, like young kids, young girls, young boys, families. It’s crazy the amount of people there the other night.”
Tyson returns to the ring on Saturday as he faces former UFC heavyweight Francis Ngannou in the bout dubbed ‘battle of the baddest’ in Saudi Arabia.
