Got to say the higher price tickets are expensive. It makes you think what Tyson is charging the promoter.

One of my many jobs when working for David Haye was to get him appearances at Dinner shows & punditry work on tv, that was prior to the Bellew fights.

The going rate for dinners was £8k -£10k, then depending on where the dinner was and if we were staying overnight I would press night clubs for appearance money.

He got £1.5k-£3k for a couple of hours, plus at least a couple of bottles of vodka and soft drinks, we went through a period where I got him work most weekends.

Tv appearances on a variety of programmes ranged from £1.5k - £5k, I remember Sky always tried to drive the price down the average for them was £1.5k -£3k.

can stand next to him looking like a right div with your first clenched. Grrrrrr.
:clap: nothing says desperate casual than the fist clench :OhYes:

Its always been clear that Fury has chased the money, and who can blame him; he is a professional sportsman after all.

I agree though - I couldn't think of many things worse than listening to him talk his usual boring drivel for an hour or so. He is as fake as his 'Peoples Champion' claim :stop:
I like him and always watch his fights but I wouldn't pay to see anyone doing this after dinner stuff.

Maybe he's contracted to do certain things. 'The Gypsy King' is a brand now and will have several lawyers, advisors etc around him. Even his wife has a book out.... It's an industry itself. And a very rough guess on fee? 40k?

Speaking of which, I had a can of Furocity the other day - it was alright.

I doubt he’s contracted to do these shows. I’d imagine he probably enjoys them, talks shit for an hour or so (which is something he loves to do), it gives him something to do and gets paid as well.

It’s just another contradiction with Tyson though. Says he’s not in it for money and he’s the people’s champ yet they’re charging £500 a seat for some of the tickets for a show built around him.

There is no way I'd go, but the current EBay cost of a Tyson signed glove is about £250.

Obviously if he spends the next 10 years signing lots of them, the value will fall, but a net £250 to have a chat and a photo with Fury is not bad value.

I doubt any seat is £500. As Loynesy said the glove is £250 on Ebay although you can get one for £200 straight from Goldstar. Or wait for the free book signing.

The tables for 10 are going for £5k plus booking fee. They might get some added extras but they’ll not be sitting until someone pays the £500 a piece.

The co promoter must be sticking a fair bit on. It's more expensive than the others.

Who knows. Either way it doesn’t really tie in with Tyson’s lack of desire for money (despite his seeming want for half a bill) and his man of the people image.

Yep - it was sandwiched in between his 2 rolls Royces as his Ferrari was in the garage.

Tyson could legitimately be a politician. When asked about his pledge to give his purse to charity he just says that what he does with his money is his business and no one else’s. It’s tough to argue with and no one pushes him further.

If folk could go back in time and get a pic with Ali, and a signed glove off him too, as well as a q&a dinner, I doubt there would be a problem getting a grand a ticket.

We are talking time machine stuff here, I'm sure Fury will be appreciated far more in 30-50 years time.
And I said a grand for an Ali ticket!

Speaking of Furys. Paris was out the other night with friends and family. I'll not say where because it would spoil it for her going forward but what I will say is that she is as she seems on television i.e. not at all flash, very polite and, by the looks of it, good fun to be around. From a distance, it would seem, Tyson has an absolutely great wife there in every regard.

She’s even well received when she’s appears on loose women.

Not that I’ve watched it. But I always read it.
