Tyson Fury is one of the best heavyweights on the planet. An iconic figure in boxing betting odds, Fury has enjoyed taking on the underdog role throughout his career.

There is plenty of money in boxing if you’re good enough and Fury is certainly good enough. He has made a career out of his unorthodox, awkward style of fighting.
Without further ado, it is time to look at our Tyson Fury net worth career profile, starting with his now famous double header with American heavyweight Deontay Wilder.
Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury’s feud with Deontay Wilder began 2018, with a series of press events in the build up to December’s bout.
