The nearly $33 million that the Englishman Tyson Fury added to his bank account after beating the American Dillian Whyte at Wembley, first led him to fulfill another of his whims, a new car, but less ostentatious with respect to another one he had in his collection.
A more modest life
A few days ago, “the King of the Gypsies” and his wife were captured in Paris arriving at a car dealership where they exchanged their $313,000 Ferrari F12 Sports Car for a $173,000 electric Porsche Taycan.
Such action shows that Fury intends to be less ostentatious to say the least, perhaps because he wants to stay true to his word of retiring from professional boxing, which would prevent him from continuing to make money.
“I’m done, when is enough? I’m happy, I’m healthy. I have a beautiful wife, I have six children. I have countless belts, I have a lot of money. I have success, fame, glory. What else do I do it for?” he expressed the night he defeated his most recent opponent.
The favorite wagon
Another action that shows the boxer’s intention of not losing ground before the fortune he has achieved, was exposed in a video recorded by himself, where he shares with his fans the news that he still has a modest vehicle at the doors of his home.
In December 2020, Tyson sold his Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV and bought a modest 2006 Volkswagen Passat wagon, which seems to remain his favorite vehicle.
While the European fighter analyzes the steps he will take either in or out of the ring, Mauricio Sulaiman, president of the World Boxing Council (WBC), announced that in the next week he will communicate with Tyson Fury and his promoters to know what is his final decision about his career.
“Our dream is to see fighters retire with such greatness. Undefeated champion, financially protected with a loving family and a great future outside the ring,” expressed the leader.
