Tyson Fury, Derek Chisora Guaranteed Millions For Saturday’s Trilogy Fight

They fought once in 2011 and another time in 2014.

Despite major push back on their third matchup, Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora are still slated to meet on Saturday. 

Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, will be walking away with a guaranteed purse of $25 million while Chisora will make $4.5 million. The pay-per-view revenue will also be split 80-20, in favor of Fury. 

The undefeated champion made over $12 million in his second fight against Chisora in 2014. In that bout, the 6’9” heavyweight forced a stoppage in the 10th round. Chisora took home $1.5 million despite losing. 

In their first meeting in 2011, Chisora reportedly made about $500,000. He lost by unanimous decision.  

Facing Chisora for the third time wasn’t always the plan for Fury. 

After taking out mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in April, Fury called out unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and former champion Anthony Joshua.  

The Brit teased bouts with both of them at different times, but it was Chisora who ultimately signed the deal with Fury.  

The UK price for the December 3 pay-per-view will cost a UK high of £26.95 — roughly $32.20 — for BT Sport Box Office. For U.S. fans, they must pay a $9.99 monthly subscription to ESPN+ or an annual subscription for $99.99. The Fury vs. Chisora fight will not be an additional cost. 

“Listen, I rate Derek Chisora as highly as I rate Usyk, and I will train as hard for Derek as I will for any man in the world,” Fury said, via Boxing Scene.  

“If I didn’t, I would have to be an absolute idiot – I will not underestimate Derek Chisora. God forbid I got beat, it won’t be for the fact that I had an injury or I didn’t train hard enough, it would be the fact that I lost to a better man on the night.”
