Tyson Fury will make £12million for his fight with Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel on October 31st in Saudi Arabia, according to Daily Mail.
The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion appeared in the premiere of SmackDown on Fox a few weeks back and it was confirmed on Raw he will be facing the Monster Among Men at the event in the Arabian nation. It is understood the British fighter would pocket £12m an amount higher that what Brock Lesnar earns in a year. The Crown Jewel event will also see former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez in action when he fights on a different platform against his rival Lesnar. Fury in a recent comments suggested his much anticipated rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder could be in doubt.The 31-year-old was asked whether his WWE career will affect his rematch with the Bronze Bomber, he said: "There's a hell of a chance of that," adding, "Who knows what lies beneath? Maybe Velasquez, maybe Lesnar." Wilder will take on Luis Ortiz on November 23rd and the winner will be on the cards to fight number contender, Fury who is currently making cool cash from wrestling.
