Tyson Fury To Lose A Fortune If Deontay Wilder Beats Him
Tyson Fury is expected to make millions of dollars in pay-per-view in 2022 if he beats Deontay Wilder on October 9 and then goes on to share the ring with the winner of the Oleksandr Usyk versus Anthony Joshua rematch.
But if the Bronze Bombers gets better of the Gypsy King, he could be out of the super fights, meaning he is set to lose millions of dollars and dent his stocks in the process.
Both Wilder and Fury have been talking trash with each other on social media too.

In a separate development, SugarHill Steward, who trained Fury for the second showdown against Wilder held in 2020, has revealed how he and the Gypsy King got down to business.
“I know what Tyson can do, I know what he’s capable of, and I know his mental makeup,” the veteran trainer told BT Sport.
“It wasn’t a problem going into that second fight with Deontay Wilder, and I just told him the game plan. When I got done telling him how I saw the fight and what he should do to win that fight and get a knockout, all Tyson said was, ‘yeah,’” he added.
The Gypsy King hasn’t defended his heavyweight strap since acing the rematch against Wilder. He is the favorite entering the trilogy fight.
