Tyson Fury Tells Reporter He’s Broke

This past weekend, Tyson Fury told a U.K.  journalist that he is broke, following being out of action for two years due to issues with his mental health and substance abuse.

Fury, who told the Daily Record Newspaper that he spent seemingly all of the £4million purse he earned when beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, was seemingly joking with the reporter, claiming that “people will believe anything.”

Fury, who decided to hand the reporter “fake news” claimed that he doesn’t “have any money in the bank. I’m on the dole.”

“I’m on Jobseeker’s Allowance at the moment. I’m not winding you up – I’m being truthful. Seriously, I didn’t make any money out of boxing at all. Don’t feel sorry for me – it’s not a bad thing.

Fury, who claimed to be truthful, but is known to stretch the truth to its limits on ocassion made claims that he earned  £10,000 prior to a 2016 Billy Joe Saunders fight, and then “went up and down Glasgow giving it to the homeless.”

 

“What goes around comes around, I believe. A greedy man doesn’t enter the kingdom of heaven.”

 

Whether or not he is rich, poor, robin hood, or the “gypsy king,” Fury’s planned April is being held back until at least May, while Fury looks to get back into top shape.
