TOMMY FURY missed out on £4MILLION after refusing a double-or-nothing bet before his win over Jake Paul.
Love Island star Fury, 23, clinched a split-decision victory over YouTuber Paul, 26, in Saudi Arabia on Sunday evening.
Fury secured a £4m purse for the blockbuster showdown in the Middle East.
But he could have walked away with £8m had he taken up Paul‘s offer during the week.
Paul rocked up with a contract for Fury to sign after they had previously shaken on a double-or-nothing bet that would either see the Brit take home £8m or be left empty-handed.
However, Fury ultimately refused to put pen to paper as he held on to his agreed £4m payday.
He then went on to outbox Paul, surviving a late knockdown to secure the win on two of the three judges’ scorecards.
And his victory meant he actually ended up leaving £4m on the table due to the bet refusal.
But Fury was not the only one in his family to lose big on the fight.
World heavyweight champion Tyson, 34, laid down £100,000 on his brother winning inside the distance.
On the other side of the fence, rapper Drake ended the night $400,000, or roughly £330,000, lighter after lumping on Paul.
But, rather than the financial gain, it was overcoming the huge pressure that pleased Fury the most following his win.
He said: “I feel a weight is lifted. Me and Jake fought and I came out the clear winner.
“I believe you will be able to see a gulf in class when you watch the fight back.
“But listen take nothing away from Jake Paul he is a game lad, but I believe I can stop him in the rematch.”
Paul has claimed he will trigger the rematch clause as he looks to avenge the first loss of his professional career.
