The outspoken British heavyweight put on a riveting performance against Deontay Wilder in a WBC heavyweight title fight that ended in a very controversial split-decision draw on Saturday, with Wilder retaining his belt.
All boxing experts agree that Fury clearly won the fight but boxing has history of very strange looking judge cards. The pay-per-view slugfest was memorable both for the 6-foot-9 Fury’s impressively slick boxing skills and that he somehow got off the canvas.
Fury kept fighting after the extremely heavy-handed Wilder flattened Fury in the 12th round with a punch that would have put any other opponent to sleep. But in the lead-up to Fury’s biggest bout since returning from a three-year hiatus, in which he battled depression and substance abuse, the “Gypsy King” told BT Sport that he plans to donate his entire $14 million dollar purse to the homeless.
Tyson has also been dedicating his fight and amazing comeback to all the
mental health sufferers around the world. Check out the clip below:
