Fury has been publicly slammed for taking a fight with the boxing rookie following the collapse of his undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk.

But former opponent Derek Chisora has defended The Gypsy King, telling FightHub TV: “They don’t know how much Tyson’s getting paid.

“That’s why they criticise him.”

Fury is expected to pocket the biggest purse of his professional career for his desert dust-up with Ngannou.

And according to Chisora, he’ll take home a cool £39million for his ten-rounder with The Predator.

Del Boy – who suffered a tenth-round TKO loss to his fellow Brit last December said: “He’s getting paid $50 mil.”

Fury is expected to resume negotiations over a historic and legacy-defining undisputed fight with unified heavyweight champion Usyk after his showdown with Ngannou.

But the Wythenshawe warrior recently admitted he could RETIRE after his clash with the former UFC heavyweight champion.

During a recent appearance on Heart Radio, he said: “Age catches up with everybody

“And every top-performance athlete at 35 is probably past their best.

“But I just feel like I’m getting better and more intelligent as I’m getting older.

“So who knows how long I’ve got left?

“Maybe not long, maybe a year, maybe two years. Maybe one fight.

“Who knows?”
