The Gypsy King Tyson Fury has been praised for his incredible gesture of announcing that he’s donating most of his Deontay Wilder £8 million fight purse to homeless people.

A story emerged this week that Tyson ran over to a homeless person who was in his bare feet and gave him his own shoes and went barefoot himself.

Tyson Fury is about to take on the fight of his life in facing the undefeated Deontay Wilder this weekend in Los Angeles for the WBC World Heavyweight Championship belt.

The Staples Center will stage the mega fight where one of the two undefeated fighters will see their record tarnished by the end of the night.

According to SportBible, Fury said:
“I’m going to give it to the poor and I’m going to build homes for the homeless.

“I don’t really have much use for it, I’m not interested in becoming a millionaire or a billionaire. I’m a boxer not a businessman and I’ll probably go down the same route as every other boxer – skint at the end of it all.

“You can’t take it with you, so I might as well do something with it and help out people who can’t help themselves.”

Well if that does make you want to back him, nothing will!
