Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte prize money: How much fighters will make


Wembley will play host to a record breaking all-British bout this Saturday when WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury takes on Dillian Whyte in front of a bumper 94,000 spectators.

But regardless of the outcome of the bout, both Fury and Whyte are set to earn a mouth-watering pay check from the record breaking Wembley fight.

How much will Fury and Whyte earn?

Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, won the purse bid with an offer of approximately £30m, beating out the £23m bid put forward by Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn.

While an 80:20 split in favour of Fury, that division only related to 90 per cent of Warren’s £30m winning bid, because the promoter must deposit the other 10 per cent.

As a result, the split will see WBC heavyweight champion Fury take home approximately £21.5m, while Whyte will pocket around £5.5m following the all-British fight.

Whoever wins the bout will receive the £3m 10 per cent deposit.

Betting odds

Betfair has a Fury win down at 2/9 making the Gypsy King the clear betting favourite. A Whyte win is 7/2 while a draw is priced at 33/1.
