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.”

Tyson Fury's Net worth in 2020

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.
