2021 was a big year for Tyson Fury.
The boxer polished off his trilogy with Deontay Wilder in emphatic style, knocking out The Bronze Bomber and earning himself a huge pay day in the process.
Even before that victory, the heavyweight champion had raked in a tonne of cash through his undefeated career in the ring.
On Companies House, the latest company accounts for Tyson Fury Limited - for the year ended March 2021 - show that the 33-year-old has around £40 million in the bank.
However, the Gypsy King only paid himself a relatively meagre £70,000 in dividends. Indeed, in 2020, he only paid himself £2,000.
Of course, the amount you pay yourself when you've got £40m in the bank is irrelevant to a degree. Just because he paid himself £2,000 in 2020 doesn't mean he was out foraging for reductions in Tesco.
As anyone who has tried to save money will know, when you've got the money sitting there and you need it, it's very hard to resist dipping in and withdrawing it.
But while we may take out £50 to go out, Fury presumably withdraws £100,000 if he fancies a new Ferrari.
Plus, sporting superstars like Fury tend to get all sorts of things for free from sponsors and brands keen to be associated with them.
However, the accounts do seem to suggest he is being careful with his vast sums of cash; after all, £40m is quite the safety net.
That said, Fury has previously spoken about his lack of care about money and predicted that he will ultimately blow it all.
The Mirror reported in 2018 that he said: "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."
