Fast and Fury-ous! Tyson trades in his £250k gas-guzzling Ferrari for a £140k electric Porsche after cashing in £26.2m in world title fight

He recently bagged a whopping £26.2million for knocking out Dillian Whyte in his WBC heavyweight fight. 

So Tyson Fury decided to treat himself as he splashed out £140,000 on an electric Porsche Taycan which can reach top speeds of 162mph. 

The Gypsy King, 33, was accompanied by his pregnant wife Paris, 32, as they perused the vehicles at a dealership in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

The couple arrived at the lot in his £250,000 gas-guzzling Ferrari that they traded in for a more eco-friendly vehicle. 

Tyson seemed in good spirits as he prepared to take his new vehicle for a spin, whipping off his tweed blazer as he settled in behind the wheel. 

Meanwhile Paris – who is pregnant with the couple’s seventh child – concealed her baby bump in a navy bomber jacket and jeans.

While Tyson may have been flashing the cash with his pricey new motor, Tyson proved that he still looks after the pennies after he was spotted visiting a charity shop. 

The boxer was hailed for being ‘down to earth’ after he visited a local shop and purchased a £3 pair of sunglasses.

Tyson was enjoying some quality time with his family last week in Cheshire when he popped into Cancer Research and delighted shocked customers by chatting and having photos with them.

Per The Sun, an onlooker in Wilmslow, Cheshire, said: ‘He was very relaxed and seemed so happy to be there. He was asking the staff about their work and posing for pics with anyone who’d ask.’

‘It’s mad that someone so wealthy would want to come to a charity shop. It just shows how down to earth and what a nice, honest bloke Tyson is.’

It comes almost two weeks after the WBC champion cashed in £26.2million for successfully retaining his WBC title. 

The boxer secured his victory in front of a record British crowd of 94,000 fans after unleashing a brutal uppercut that thudded off the challenger’s chin and sent him tumbling to the canvas.

Speaking immediately after the fight, Tyson reiterated the fact that he would be walking away from the sport as he promised his wife Paris that he would retire from boxing after 20 years in the ring.

However, it remains to be seen as to whether Tyson will keep to his word, as if history is anything thing to go by. the Gypsy King could be back in action sometime soon.

Very few boxers walk away from their careers while in their prime and with Tyson currently undefeated with an impressive record of 32-0-1 and in with a chance of landing a unification bout with either Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk it seems hard to believe he will hang up his gloves for good.
