The long-announced match between Tyson Fury and former UFC champion Francis Ngannou awaits us soon, which will take place on October 28 in Saudi Arabia. Of course, Fury is the big favorite, but just in case, there is a clause in case of defeat, he would get a rematch with Ngannou.

However, we must admit that no one thinks that the brilliant and experienced Irishman will lose to an MMA fighter. In case he wins and passes without major injuries, he will have a fight against IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO champion Olexandar Usyk.

It is already speculated that Fury will earn over 100 million dollars from one fight, so he should earn almost 200 million dollars from these two fights. However, promoter Eddie Hearn doesn't think so. He claims that Tyson Fury will earn 100 million dollars, but in total from both fights.

'What do you think? In one interview, it's $100 million, and in another interview, it's $200 million. I would say [he's] making over $100 [million] Ngannou and Usyk," Hearn told IFL TV. 'It's probably 30 & 70 and 30 & 80, but I've heard there's a rematch clause, whatever happens.

So, it's probably plus. Maybe you want a rematch clause. Imagine if I said to you, "You get x for the first and guaranteed x for the second." You’d go, " I might as well do it.' 'If you're Fury, you want the rematch with Ngannou just in case, especially if the Saudis are offering him a ton of dough.

Why not? It's not like fat & old-looking Fury has an ambition to start fighting the killers in the division that would take advantage of his poor physical condition, lack of activity, and his rapidly advancing age. At this point, Fury is just out for the easy money for what is essentially a farewell retirement tour." as quoted by boxingscene
