Deontay Wilder gets $25million plus pay-per-view profits despite losing to Fury
Deontay Wilder, despite his seventh-round TKO loss to Tyson Fury on Saturday, would still have something to smile at – the Bank!
According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Wilder and Fury were both guaranteed $5 million for their anticipated rematch.
ESPN’s Dan Rafael noted that figure was actually a low estimate, with both fighters slated to take home $25 million plus a percentage of the pay-per-view profits.
Wilder will also have 30 days to initiate his immediate rematch clause in their contract.
The terms of the third fight would give Fury a 60-40 split in the purse, per Brent Brookhouse of CBS Sports.
