Boxing: The eye-watering offer that could see Tyson Fury make boxing return


Tyson Fury announced his retirement from boxing after defeating Dillian Whyte to retain his WBC heavyweight title on Saturday night.

The Gypsy King said following the fight that he would honour his promise to his wife Paris to retire.

“I promised my lovely wife, Paris, of 14 years that after the [Deontay] Wilder trilogy fight that would be it, and I meant it,” Fury said.

“I had a war, it was a great trilogy and I meant that, but I got offered to fight at Wembley at home and I believed that I owed it to the fans. I owed it to every person in the United Kingdom to come here and fight at Wembley.

“Now it’s all done, I have to be a man of my word and I think this is it, this might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King and what a way to go out.”

However, rumours have begun to swirl that he could return to the ring in a 100 million pound (127.2 million dollar) fight.

These rumours started when his wife Paris hinted that he could be tempted back to the ring directly after the fight.

“For Tyson [Fury] to keep boxing, it just seems for one reason and I know in my heart, I think the only reason that Tyson will come back is for the unification fight,” she said.

The numbers behind Whyte fight

Fury earned approximately 33.3m dollars out of the 41.2m dollars at stake in the fight against Whyte.

The Manchester boxer earned 1.9m dollars for every minute that he stood in the ring at Wembley Stadium.

According to Diario Ole, he earned 450,000 dollars from each of the 74 punches that he threw during the fight.
