Tommy Fury set to receive massive amount of money after beating Jake Paul

Tommy Fury is set to receive massive amount of money after beating Jake Paul in their almighty boxing showdown tonight (26 February).
At the Diriyah Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the pair finally fought it out after months of back and forth and two cancelled bouts, with Fury winning on points.
And it's safe to say the prize pot up for grabs is absolutely massive.
According to Sports Zion, Paul was set to bag a $3.2 million (£2.7m) purse if he won, as well as taking home 65 percent of the overall pay-per-view sales.
That would have meant a payday of $8.6 million (£7.2m) including his sponsorships.
For his British opponent, however, he was reported to earn $2 million (£1.7m) if he emerged victorious, also grabbing 35 percent of the pay-per-view.
This originally meant that a victory would see him bag $4.5 million (£3.8m).
But - and it's a big but - during Thursday’s (23 February) press conference, Paul put forward a lucrative 'double or nothing' contract offer.
He told the Manchester-born fighter he would pay him double if he won their eight-round bout, or Fury would have to pay him his entire earnings if he lost.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer said earlier this week: "Bring out the contract, lawyers already drafted it up this week. And like I said, if I can reiterate: if I win, I take all the money you’re being paid. If you win, I double it up."
But, as we all know at this point, Tommy has just defeated the 'Problem Child', meaning Jake's in massive debt to his rival.
If the numbers are true, Fury now stands to take home a massive $9 million (£7.5m) - not too bad for a night's work.
Alongside the massive paycheque, the younger brother to Tyson Fury has protected his reputation in the boxing world.
Both Jake and Tommy were determined to 'end' each other when they finally came head-to-head, having blasted each other on social media for the past couple of years.
In recent weeks, things have been heating up between the two camps, with Jake branding his opponent 'disrespectful' to some of the biggest names in boxing by not taking their fight seriously.
His dig arrived after Tommy didn’t show up to a press conference in Saudi Arabia earlier this month, with the 'Problem Child' not taking into account the fact that his opponent had just become a dad.
Speaking of which, Tommy wore a touching tribute to his daughter Bambi by having her name brandished on his ring walk outfit.
He also said he dedicated the fight to his newborn, saying in his post-match speech: "I want to dedicate this fight to my new baby girl Bambi at home and my missus.
"I love you and I can't wait to see you."
He added: "This fight is for you, Bambi, I love you."
