LONDON – Tyson Fury insists he will be motivated by pride rather than prize money when the controversial British fighter faces Deontay Wilder.
Fury will travel to Las Vegas in November to meet WBC heavyweight champion Wilder in what will be the third fight of his comeback.
The 30-year-old eased to victory against Francesco Pianeta at Belfast's Windsor Park on Saturday, setting the stage for the biggest pay-day of his career in the United States.
But Fury says he is fighting for glory rather than the boost to his bank balance.
"I'm not going into this for a pay cheque. I wouldn't lose for £100 million; you can't pay any amount of money for me to go to Vegas to get sparked out," he said.
