Tyson Fury earning a reported $15 million figure for Crown Jewel
British tabloid newspaper The Daily Mail is reporting that Tyson Fury will earn around £11.9 million – or $15 million – for his match against Braun Strowman at the upcoming Crown Jewel pay-per-view.
The figure, if proven true, would trump any other fee WWE has paid for a celebrity to be part of their show. While Floyd Mayweather has claimed in the past that he was paid $20 million for his match against Big Show at WrestleMania 24, the fee is believed to be much less than that and less than what Fury is getting for his time with WWE this month.
The British boxer, who is still undefeated, donated a large sum of money from the purse he received from his fight against Deontay Wilder last year.
