They didn’t win EuroMillions but that’s it. Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury hit the jackpot by offering spectators the heavyweight belt unification fight, won by the Ukrainian on the night of Saturday May 18 to Sunday May 19.

Usyk hit less than Fur

According to several sources, the distribution of the winnings was agreed as follows: 70% of the purse for the “Gypsy King” and the rest for the Ukrainian. An amount of around 150 million dollars is mentioned, or 138 million euros.

Which would mean that the remaining 30% is for Usyk, or approximately $50 million (46 million euros). Ahead of the fight, Bob Arum, Tyson Fury’s American promoter, declared however that Fury could earn more than what is mentioned.

Much more than $100 million?

“If you told Tyson Fury he was going to make $100 million, he would be really upset because he thinks, and I think he’s right, that he’s going to make a lot more. I don’t know the number, but it’s a lot more than $100 million.”, did he declare. Note that a clause obliging the Briton to pay 1 million of his earnings to Ukraine, to support the war effort, would also be present in the contract.
