TYSON FURY GIVES EMOTIONALLY CHARGED PRESS CONFERENCE AS HE DISCUSSES BATTLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH AND KISSES ONE OF HIS TEAM
Tyson Fury is set to donate his £8million purse from his fight against Deontay Wilder to helping the homeless and needy.
The Gypsy King is expected to pocket the seven-figure sum after the bout ended in a draw.
But assuming he is good to his word, he will hand the entire amount to those less fortunate.
Speaking before the blockbuster fight at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, he said: “I’m going to give it to the poor and I’m going to build homes for the homeless.
“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 ill 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.”
