Tyson Fury Says Mike Tyson Wanted $620M for Exhibition Fight: 'It Was Crazy'

Any hopes of an exhibition match between heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury and Mike Tyson appear to be gone because of Tyson's apparent financial demands for the bout.

In an interview with iFL.tv (h/t World Boxing News), Fury said "there was talk" of doing a fight with Tyson, but it didn't materialize because of money.

“Mike was talking about £500 million ($620 million) figures but what came back to us on paper was a joke," Fury said.

I did have a $10 million offer from ESPN to do the fight as an exhibition, but I think everyone has moved on now."
