Fury and Usyk both have the chance to be crowned the first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999.

But the glory of taking home the belts are not the driving factor for the Gyspy King.

Fury told The Telegraph: ” I hate to say it because the boxing fans, the boxing purists and all them w****** don’t want to hear it, but why do you think I box? For the money.

“If anybody in professional boxing tells me they don’t do this game for money, they’re lying, and I speak from the heart. 

“I do it for the dough. The bigger the deal, the better. I’m a prize-fighting pugilist specialist, that’s what I do.

“I fight for the prize, whether it be gold bars, gold coins, cash, transfers, cars – whatever you want to pay me, pay me in bags of sand for all I care. As long as I can make a drink on it, deal done.

“So, I’m going in there to get paid, get laid and come back to Morecambe Bay.

“I probably won’t even buy anything, because I don’t need anything. I’ll do a bit of shopping, probably be tighter than I am today. I’ll do the rematch exactly the same.”

Fury, 35, also revealed he wants to fight until he turns 40-years-old.

And by that point, he hopes to be “the first £500million heavyweight boxer in history”.

Reports suggest Fury will pocket in excess of £80m for fighting Usyk.

More cash could be made via a bet, with John Fury revealing he has wagered a staggering amount on his son winning that will either make him “rich” or “skint”.

And with huge sums of money on the line, things have already got heated between the two camps.

John clashed with a member of Usyk’s team yesterday, headbutting him and ending up with blood streaming down his face.
