Tommy Fury Set To Receive Massive Amount Of Money After Beating Jake Paul

Tommy Fury is poised to receive a substantial sum of money following his victory over Jake Paul in their highly anticipated boxing match, which took place on the evening of February 26th.

After several months of anticipation, two canceled matches, and a series of verbal exchanges, Fury emerged victorious over his opponent on points at the Diriyah Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

It is fair to say that the available prize money is tremendously enormous.

As per Sports Zion, had he emerged victorious, Paul would have received a purse of $3.2 million (£2.7m), in addition to claiming 65% of the total pay-per-view revenue.

This would have resulted in Paul receiving a total payout of $8.6 million (£7.2m), factoring in his sponsorships.

Meanwhile, Fury was expected to earn $2 million (£1.7m) in the event of his triumph, along with 35% of the pay-per-view earnings.

Consequently, if he had won, Fury would have received a total of $4.5 million (£3.8m) in earnings.

However, during the press conference held on Thursday, February 23, Paul presented a highly profitable proposal of a 'double or nothing' contract.

Paul offered the boxer from Manchester the option of receiving twice the amount in the event of his victory in the eight-round bout or forfeiting his entire earnings to Paul if he lost.

Earlier this week, the individual who gained fame through YouTube and then transitioned into the sport of boxing stated: "Bring out the contract, lawyers already drafted it up this week. And like I said, if I can reiterate: if I win, I take all the money you're being paid. If you win, I double it up."

However, as we now know, Tommy has emerged victorious over the 'Problem Child', implying that Jake is indebted to his adversary to a significant degree.

If the reports are accurate, Fury is now in line to receive a colossal sum of $9 million (£7.5m), which is undoubtedly a considerable amount for a single evening's effort.

In addition to the substantial monetary reward, Tommy Fury, the younger sibling of Tyson Fury, has safeguarded his standing in the realm of boxing.

When they finally collided, Jake and Tommy were resolute in their ambition to vanquish one another, having traded criticisms and insults on social media for the preceding few years.

In the weeks leading up to the event, tensions between the two parties had intensified, with Jake accusing his adversary of being 'disrespectful' to some of the most prominent figures in boxing by not taking the fight seriously.

Jake's comment came in response to Tommy's absence from a press conference in Saudi Arabia earlier this month, despite the fact that his opponent had just become a father. Jake appeared to disregard this fact.

In a touching gesture, Tommy paid homage to his daughter Bambi by featuring her name prominently on his attire during his ring walk.

During his post-match speech, he further stated that he had dedicated the fight to his newborn.

"I love you and I can't wait to see you."

He added: "This fight is for you, Bambi, I love you."
