Tyson Fury donated his entire £8 million purse to charity and is an absolute hero.

    Are people still believing a pre-fight comment made for publicity?

    Fury hasn't and likely won't donate any of his purse to charity.

    Dude...he ko'd joe f''''cking frazier in 2 rounds...he has the highest ko% of any heavyweight in history...there is no comparison...one needs to consider opposition also...he ko'd joe freaken frazier...and he wiped out ken norton...norton at that time was a legit top fighter...wilder hasn't beaten anyone even remotely close to frazier level...forget about career 2...I don't even count that, to be honest...he was 50lbs heavier, much much slower...and his punches were much less effective.

    level of opposition has to be taken into account...while he's ko'd bums...foreman ko'd joe frazier, ken norton, ron lyle..in his first career, which is what I go by, not his fat later career...he was virtually unstoppable..only losing to ali and young...he always had trouble with tricky boxers...and lets not forget sonny liston..that guy hit like a truck..with way better technique than wilder.

    complimenting a guy you beat...it's very typical...even though it was technically a draw..pretty much everyone thought fury won the fight..

    I was about to heap praise on him and then I read this. So can anyone confirm, has Tyson Fury actually donated his purse to charity? Seems like a bit of a strange thing (as he has trainers/promoters to pay) to do unless he's got some other money coming in that we don't know about.

    Also polar opposites as fighters.

    Tyson is all heart and a true Irish Warrior!

    Always respected Fury. You can just tell when there is a real man behind the character/gimmick

    He says he was going to donate his purse.

    Whether he does is still up for debate since he has not done so as of now.

    Two days ago it was stated the money would be used to build new homes for the homeless in Manchester.

    Norton had a mediocre chin. And Frazier got knocked down six times and got up six times in fight number one. And Lyle fell more from exhaustion than from punches. Foreman hit hard obviously, but he was not a one-punch KO artist.

    Since my first trainer died in 2015 I've found it really hard to box again.

    This is truly inspiring. Gonna get myself down the gym on monday night.

    I used to hate Conor too but behind the scenes he has helped out, both are very generous with their money

    Awesome move by Fury

    If, and I mean IF, the Greek Gods exist, Fury will swim in the river Styx and talk to Hades and Persephone after his death.

    That was still just news outlets and journalists (who don't follow boxing) reporting his pre-fight comments. Nothing has yet actually been said by Fury or his camp in regards to giving the money to a charity or setting up a fund for the homeless etc etc post-fight.

    Moving millions of pounds takes legal solicitation. It'll take time to sort it all out.

    foreman is considered the hardest puncher ever...and one punch ko artist..well, pretty much nobody is...all of the best ko fighters who ever lived, normally require multiple shots to put the guy down...they all have some fights where they ko'd the guy with one shot...same with tyson..and frazier was an undefeated world champion who just beat ali, and is one of the best heavyweights whose ever lived...all one has to do is watch foremans fight with frazier and see the scary power he had...go watch it again...that fight was freaken scary...he hit so hard...to put such a beating on a guy like frazier...it was shocking to see...oh, you say that ron lyle went out due to exhaustion...well, another guy considered to be one of the top hardest hitters ever, Ernie shavers...he was unable to stop Lyle...but foreman did...weird thing was, so did ali..haha and he wasn't really a hard puncher...
