The State of Nevada Athletic Commission revealed that the fight purse for Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder for the rematch is $5 million apiece for their rematch but both the heavyweights will pocket as much as $25million (£19.3m).
When the two then-undefeated boxers fought for the first time in December 2018 in Los Angeles Wilder was guaranteed $4 million while Fury was set to earn $3 million not including profits from pay-per-view sales.
ESPN reported that the two heavyweights have the fight purse of £3.85 million ($5m) each but they are guaranteed to earn at least £19.27m ($25m) apiece but this sum doesn't include PPV money.
Fury's promoter Bob Arum expects the winner to take home in excess of £30.8 million ($40m). He said:
“It’s sold out in the Arena, so that’s $16 million less taxes. What we don’t know is the English pay-per-view and the US pay-per-view. I’ve talked to Frank Warren, who’s the co-promoter with Tyson Fury, and he believes the English pay-per-view, even at four in the morning, will be one million. If the pay-per-view hit two million, here they would each get, I don’t know what Wilder would get, but my guy would get well over $40million.”
The British World Champion boxer had a net worth of £31million ($40m) before his rematch against Wilder in February 2020 as per various sources. As Fury is set to earn around $40 million from his most recent fight, the earnings could see his net worth rise to around $50 million in 2020.
Fury's recent £80m five-fight deal with ESPN helped alot to trigger his net worth. Moreover, he made a cool £12 million from his single WWE appearance against Braun Strowman.
The former World Champion boxer was also reported to have the net worth of $30 million before Fury's fight. He was listed no. 56 among the world’s highest-paid athletes in 2019. Despite the loss against Fury in 2020, he is set to earn $5 million from fight purse and around $20 million more from the PPV sales and bonuses.
Wilder's recent paycheck is expected to hike his net worth to $50 million soon in 2020. Besides, he also earns $500,000 additional amount from his endorsement deals.
