British boxer Tyson fury has announced that it will spend a fee for the fight with American DevTeam Wilder to charity. The words of the athlete reports The Mirror.
Fury admitted that he doesn’t need the money and is not going to become a millionaire. “Homecoming is going to build housing for the homeless and to have funds for drug addicts and alcoholics,” said 30-year-old fury. He added that this decision prompted his visit to the United States.
“There’s a lot of homeless people. I’ve never seen so many people lived on the streets. Worth just five minutes from downtown Los Angeles — around for thousands of homeless people,” said fury. The fee of the British amounted to eight million pounds (more than ten million dollars).
The fight between fury and Wilder took place on 2 December. At the end of the match was a draw. Thus, Wilder retained the title of world champion in heavy weight under versions of the world Boxing Council (WBC). Both fighters continued the competition unbeaten. On account of Wilder’s 40 wins. Fury — 27.
