Tyson Fury has become the top heavyweight fighter in the present after dethroning Deontay Wilder last February.
Came with it was his worth as a boxer, he is now estimated to have 70 million euros net worth.
Pretty amazing story to tell after he battled depression that cost him his former lineal world title belts and almost his life.
Aside from his recent battle, Fury shared his humble beginning as a boxer after he donated his eight million dollars earning to the homeless after the Wilder rematch.
“I would be selling cars and stuff. Car dealing, that sort of thing. I sold a few cars, cut a few trees. Anything to try and get a few quid to pay my bills and look after my family,” said Fury on an article released by the Sun.
The Gypsy King was not a big hit when he first came into boxing that’s why he had to find a day job to give something to his family.
He revealed that he even washed and fixed cars before while working on his dad’s business.
“He was a used-car dealer and I used to wash the cars down, clean them out and so on.
\”I would do stuff for him pretty much every day, it was quite a good job to be honest.
“I did it all the way through school, from about the age of ten until I was 16.
“I was always quite good at fixing and working with cars. My dad’s always dealt cars and I’ve always been brought up around them.”
Fury added that those times helped him to appreciate the money and the hard work he did.
Those memories ignited him to give as much as he can to the needy nowadays as he has risen to the top of the hill.
Somehow, Fury can be linked to what Manny Pacquiao has been doing for years and they are both philanthropists.

Ruiz downs Ortiz in heavyweight title eliminator

Andy Ruiz Jr. is slowly getting back as a heavyweight title contender after dominating Luis Ortiz.

The former unified heavyweight world champion knocked down “King Kong” Ortiz thrice to win via unanimous decision.

Next in line for the boxer who had one of the greatest upsets in boxing history is to face the former WBC king Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been out of the picture since being destroyed by Tyson Fury in their rematch, will make a return to face Robert Helenius before eventually fighting the Mexican Ortiz.

The Ruiz-Wilder bout is a big chance to happen as both heavyweights are under the boxing promoter Al Haymon.

“We’re always looking for great exciting fights we love to give the fans,” said Wilder, who was on ringside during the Ruiz-Ortiz clash.

“So if that’s what is lined up next, I’ve got to handle business and after that, we can get it on.”

KSI returns and wins two fights in one night

Famous YouTuber KSI returned to the boxing ring after some time and he announced it by dominating two fights in one night.

Olajide Olatunji, his real name, first defeated Swarmz, a Briton rapper who happened to be his friend as well. The match ended in the second round and then after several other matches, KSI stepped up once more to TKO Luis Alcaraz Pineda, a true professional boxer.

But despite these wins KSI’s pro record remains at 1-0 as both fights were not given a green light as officially-sanctioned bouts.

One of the undercards in the event was Salt Papi, a Tiktok star that is a Filipino. He won easily in his first fight with an impressive knock out.

Salt Papi became famous for his fake run videos and since then went on a fitness journey that led to his boxing debut

Philippines left with no boxing world champion

2022 is not yet over but we’ve already seen the fall of our boxing world champions one
by one.
And with Mark Magsayo failing to defend his WBC featherweight belt in his first title
defense, it left the Philippines with no more current world champion in the sport.
Magsayo went through a heartbreaker with a split decision loss against Rey Vargas of
Mexico.
Rene Mark Cuarto also lost the IBF minimumweight title to another Mexican boxer
named Daniel Valladares.
Just last month, it was Nonito “The Filipio Flash” Donaire who surrendered his WBC
Bantamweight belt to the Japanese Monster Noaya Inoue, his second defeat to the now
unified bantamweight champion.
Jerwin Ancajas likewise suffered the same fate while Johnriel Casimero got his WBO
bantamweightbelt stripped from him due to violation in the weight cut guidelines.
Now, the questions afloat are who will be the next Pinoy champion? Will there be
another Pinoy champ?
With Manny Pacquiao retired from professional boxer after losing his belt as well to
Yordenis Ugas, who will be the next boxer that will give the Philippines back its pride?
Up and coming star Eumir Marcial is on the list after capturing the bronze medal in the
Tokyo Olympics. Magsayo is not off the chart as well as he is still young, it’s just a
matter of bouncing back.
