Tyson Fury has made an incredible pledge to donate his pay cheque for his upcoming fight against Deontay Wilder to the poor.
Undefeated heavyweight Fury reportedly stands to make £8m from the WBC title challenge against the American Deontay Wilder, who also holds an unblemished record.
Fury, 30, has claimed that he intends to give away that pot while speaking as the build-up to the December 1 bout gains pace.
"I'm going to give it to the poor and I'm going to build homes for the homeless,” he said.
"I don't really have much use for it, I'm not interested in becoming a millionaire or a billionaire. I'm a boxer not a businessman and I'll probably go down the same route as every other boxer - skint at the end of it all.
"You can't take it with you, so I might as well do something with it and help out people who can't help themselves."
While most people may be content to tuck away any excess earnings away for future generations, Fury thinks differently. His four kids Valencia Amber, Prince John James, Venezuela, and Prince Tyson Fury II are soon to be joined by another as his wife Paris is pregnant and won’t be relying on their old man for a few quid in years to come, or so he says.
"I believe all kids should make their own money in life because if they don't, they won't appreciate it.
"You see many of these rich people's kids doing nothing because they had it too easy. I never had it easy, I had to work for whatever I got. I was working from very young, everything I wanted in life I had to work for."
The lineal champion has recently claimed he set to make “£10m+” for a mooted rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, a fight that was called off when he was declared medically unfit to take part.
