Frank Warren pays Tyson Fury £10,000 in cash from bet and now owes Piers Morgan

Frank Warren has paid Tyson Fury £10,000 in cash from their private bet but the Gypsy King now owes Piers Morgan money.

The pay out comes after it was confirmed on Thursday morning that Fury will contest a trilogy fight with Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3. His promoter Warren had bet that their talks with Anthony Joshua over a proposed bout would end with AJ signing on to fight Fury, only for the talks to break down.

As a result, he has now been seen handing over £10,000 in cash and explaining to Sport Bible: “We had a 10 grand bet. I said that AJ will fight and he said he won’t sign so he won.”

He also told talkSPORT: "I honestly believed it was gonna happen, I got to the stage where I thought we were going to get this over the line.

"Then Tyson kept saying to me, 'they're not gonna do this,' because all I'm doing is going to him everyday and telling him how the negotiations are going.

"We were talking, (to Joshua's camp) but Tyson was getting fed up with it all, and he was right at the end of the day, and it cost me 10 thousand pounds the bet I had on it. So he was 100% right, 'he will not go for this Joshua.'"

However, Fury will now have to put the money towards paying broadcaster Morgan, who had said he would fight again despite retiring in the ring after his win over Dillian Whyte in April.

Morgan will receive the money in £1 coins, though, with Fury flaunting his £10,000 as he told talkSPORT: “If I fight again, he’s going to get paid in pound coins. That was the deal. The deal was he gets paid a million pound coins.”

Fury had been in talks to fight Joshua, with the latter accepting his initial proposal for the bout before contracts were exchanged. The fight failed to materialise, though, with Joshua not signing on before Fury's self-imposed deadline.

Fans have been left underwhelmed with the news Fury will now face Chisora for a third time, with some even suggesting they could boycott the fight completely.
