Tommy Fury earns just £11k for beating Anthony Taylor – less than what he and Molly-Mae charge for an INSTAGRAM post

TOMMY FURY earned a meagre £11,000 for his victory over MMA fighter Anthony Taylor – nearly HALF of what he banks for sponsored Instagram posts.

The Love Islander cruised to a unanimous decision victory over Taylor in his American debut early on Monday morning.



But the former reality TV star wasn't paid handsomely for his victory over Pretty Boy, banking a paltry guaranteed purse of £11,000 for his troubles.

TNT's purse, which was released by the Ohio State Athletic Commission on Tuesday, stunned his followers.

The 22-year-old's latest payday pales in comparison to what he and long-time girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague are paid for sponsored Instagram posts.

According to ManySpins.com, the pair bank a whopping £20,000 each time they advertise a company's product or services on their social media pages.

That's a far easier payday than having to dodge punches from an MMA fighter for a measly £11,000.

Despite making light work of Taylor, Fury was actually paid LESS than the former BAMMA star.

Jake Paul should have an easy night on that night. So he's got no excuse for not taking the fight.

It's unknown if Fury's final purse will be topped by his potential cut of pay-per-view points.

Fury has set his sights on a showdown with YouTube star Jake Paul, saying in his post-fight interview: "Jake Paul should have an easy night on that night.

"So he's got no excuse for not taking the fight.

"Let's get it on Jake Paul. I've done my bit, you do your bit. It should be easy enough for him, like I said.

"I went four rounds with his sparring partner. Jump in the ring it's should be no test at all."

He added: "Looking at that, Jake Paul, you should have an easy night mate, shouldn't you?

"There's no excuses now. You've seen everybody, I've had the biggest cheer in the place.

"There's no excuses, no running, no hiding. I want you next, you bum. Let's get it on."
