The outspoken British heavyweight put on a riveting performance against Deontay Wilder in a WBC heavyweight title fight that ended in a very controversial split-decision draw on Saturday, with Wilder retaining his belt.  All boxing experts agree that Fury clearly won the fight but boxing has history of very strange looking judge cards.

The pay-per-view slugfest was memorable both for the 6-foot-9 Fury’s impressively slick boxing skills and that he somehow got off the canvas and kept fighting after the extremely heavy-handed Wilder flattened Fury in the 12th round with a punch that would have put any other opponent to sleep.

But in the lead-up to Fury’s biggest bout since returning from a three-year hiatus, in which he battled depression and substance abuse, the “Gypsy King” told the Irish Mirror that he plans to donate all of his estimated $10 million fight purse to the homeless.

“I’m going to give it to the poor and I’m going to build homes for the homeless,” Fury said. “I don’t really have much use for it, I’m not interested in becoming a millionaire or a billionaire.”

Tyson has also been dedicating his fight and amazing comeback to all the mental health sufferers around the world. Check out the clip below:

“I’m a boxer not a businessman and I’ll probably go down the same route as every other boxer—skint at the end of it all.”

“You can’t take it with you so I might as well do something with it and help out people who can’t help themselves,” he added.

The selfless intention earned him praise from countless Twitter users.

After winning multiple titles in 2015 when he upset longtime heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, Fury fell into a drug-fueled depression that kept him away from the ring until his victorious comeback against Sefer Seferi in June.

“I woke up every day wishing I would not wake up any more,” Fury told BBC Sport before the Seferi fight. “But I am living proof anyone can come back from the brink.”
