Tyson Fury's humble £10k lifestyle from £550k Morecambe home with Paris and kids to snubbing Ferraris for Transit vansOctober 6, 2021
TYSON FURY says he only needs £10,000 to lead his lifestyle.
The multi-millionaire boxing champ also revealed he prefers driving Transit vans to Ferraris and wants to be left alone with his wife Paris and his six children after he retires.
Fury, 33, lives in a £550,000 home in Morecambe.
A modest value considering his £70m net worth.
And he is set to pocket a further £20m from Saturday night's battle with Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.
But Fury reckons he doesn't need the money to lead the life that makes him happy.
He told BBC 5 Live: "I'm not fighting to become the greatest of all time or to become a legend in the game.
"I'm not fighting for anything, I'm not fighting for a few more quid.
"It won't benefit me at all to earn another £50m or another £250m.
"You could live my lifestyle if you had £10k.
"You don't need to be rich to live how I live.
"I live a normal lifestyle, I'm just a normal person who happens to be very good at boxing and a very special chosen person."
Many wealthy athletes splash their cash on luxury homes and flashy cars.
But Fury's tastes are much less decadent and the WBC champ says he takes joy out of old bangers rather than supercars.
He added: "Everyone wants to elevate in life to something better than they already are, but I don't.
"I'm one of them freaks who wants to stay the same old person.
"I get most joy out of jumping in an old Transit van and driving it down the road than I would do jumping in a £250k Ferrari.
"Or I can go and give £500 for an old car like a [Volkswagen] Passat or something, and people say 'why are you driving this piece of junk?' but it's not to me, I like that.
"Crazy person I suppose."
'NORMAL, HUMBLE MAN'
Fury added: "You can always find happiness in simple things. If you always go back to your roots you can always find happiness."
Many expect global superstars to leave their home towns and lay roots in more stylish and expensive parts of the world, but not Fury.
He explained: "I'm staying where I am in Morecambe in Lancashire. And I'm happy with it. I don't need to go anywhere else.
"I'm a normal humble type of man. I roam around Morecambe and I go to the gym and back twice a day.
"And if I go on one holiday a year, great.
"I hate holidays. Can't stand then in my sight. I'm a workaholic, I love being at work."
Given his obvious natural talent, Fury only wants to be a boxer and said nothing else gives him joy.
But once he has retired, the dad of six wants to be left alone with his family but fears he will be sad and lonely once he hangs up his gloves.
He said: "My job is not physical like manual labouring but it's very physical and mentally stimulating.
"It's what I do. I don't want to do anything else. I don't want to be a property developer or a car dealer. I just want to be what I am.
'I'M GOING TO BE LONELY AND SAD'
"What's motivating me? It's definitely not a few quid and it's definitely not winning more fights. It's the fact there's nothing else.
"[I do it] because I can and I don't enjoy doing anything else.
"After boxing I'm going to be a very lonely and sad person.
"I'll never be a politician or the prime minister or a rocket scientist or the president of the United States, what I'll always be is myself.

"And that's staying true to yourself. I don't want to change. I don't want to change my circles.
"I don't want to mix with the 'heighty-flightys'. No interest at all.
"And when I've finished doing what I'm doing, that's it I don't want to do anything else. I want to raise my kids up and my family and be left alone."
