World heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury was snapped trading in his Ferrari for an electric-powered Porsche following his recent victory over Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium. The Wythenshawe fighter beat Dillian in their WBC bout two weeks ago, before announcing his plans to retire from the sport.
The 33-year-old father-of-six has now been seen swapping his £250,000 Ferrari for a £140,000 Porsche Taycan. The Gypsy King looked on good form, wearing a smart jacket and cap with jeans as he picked up his new green set of wheels.
I have removed the jacket to reveal a white T-shirt with a red Gypsy King logo. And his wife of him Paris, 32, looked incredible as she beamed in a cream cropped top and heavily ripped jeans. She added a black bomber jacket to her stylish casual look and a slick of red lipstick.

Tyson announced his retirement after his victory at Wembley with a promise made to Paris following his third fight with Deontay Wilder last October. He told BT Sport: “I promised my lovely wife Paris that after the third fight with Wilder that would be it and I meant it.”
He explained: “I then got offered to fight at Wembley and I thought I owed it to the fans, to every person in the United Kingdom, to come here and fight. Now it’s all done I have to be a man of my word. I think this is it, it might be the final curtain for The Gypsy King and what a way to go out!”
Paris, who gave birth to their daughter Athena last August, later said that her husband could well return to the ring, but only in the case of a unification bout with either Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk who are due to have a rematch this year. She said: “I know in my heart that the only reason Tyson would come back is for a unification fight and that would be the only reason. He has nothing left to prove.”
As Paris posed with boxer brother-in-law Tommy’s girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague backstage at Wembley, she called her the ‘next leading lady.’ “The next leading lady there @mollymae with her de ella @tommyfury winning tonight a beauty inside and out,” she wrote. And Molly-Mae replied with a crying emoji: “My leading lady always.”
This week Tyson shared an adorable family picture of himself in twinning outfits with his three sons. The family enjoyed quality time together in Morecambe Bay, with the boys donning matching ‘Gyspy King’ tracksuit sets.
He wrote that he is “blessed” while smiling with his family, captioning the photo: “The only things we truly have is moments in time, how will u spend yours?” In the picture he posed with his teenage sweetheart Paris, who married in 2008, his eldest daughter Venezuela (12), sons Prince John James (9), Prince Tyson Fury II (5), Prince Adonis Amaziah (2), daughter Valencia (4) and eight-month-old Athena.
Tyson and his three boys wore matching red ‘Gypsy King’ branded tracksuits, showing their support for their champion boxer dad. He chatted to Piers Morgan on TalkTV about calling it quits, telling the host: “When is enough enough?”
He explained: “I’ve still got my brains, I can still talk. I’ve got a beautiful wife and six kids. I’ve got umpteen belts, I’ve got plenty of money. Success, fame, glory.
“What more am I doing it for? Boxing’s a very dangerous sport. You can be taken out with one punch, and it only takes one unlucky blow and you may not get up off that canvas. Every good dog has its day.”
He added: “And like a good Roman leader said, there will always be someone else to fight. When is enough enough?” He beat he beat Whyte with a sixth round knockout in front of a crowd of 94,000 people.
