World heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has been caught red-handed swapping his Ferrari for an electric Porsche after his recent win over Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium. The Wythenshawe fighter beat Dillian in their WBC bout two weeks ago, before announcing his intention 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 in good shape, dressed in a smart jacket and cap with jeans as he took on his new set of green wheels.
He removed the jacket to reveal a white T-shirt with a red Gypsy King logo. And his wife Paris, 32, looked amazing as she beamed in a cream cropped top and heavily ripped jeans. She added a black bomber jacket to her casual yet stylish look and a splash of lipstick.

Tyson announced his retirement after winning at Wembley with a promise made in 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 was then offered to fight at Wembley and I thought I owe it to the fans, to every single person in the UK, to come here and fight. Now that it’s all done, I have to be a man of his word. I think this is it, this could be the final curtain for The Gypsy King and what a way out!”
Paris, who gave birth to their daughter Athena last August, later said her husband may well return to the ring, but only in the event of a unification fight with Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk who must have a revenge 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 Molly-Mae Hague, the girlfriend of boxer brother-in-law Tommy, backstage at Wembley, she called him the ‘next star’. “The next leading lady out there @mollymae with her @tommyfury won beauty inside and out tonight,” she wrote. And Molly-Mae replied with a crying emoji: “My leading lady always.”
This week, Tyson shared an adorable family photo of himself in twinning attire with his three sons. The family spent some quality time together in Morecambe Bay, with the boys wearing matching ‘Gyspy King’ tracksuit sets.
He wrote he was ‘blessed’ as he smiled with his family, captioning the photo: ‘The only things we really have are moments in time, how are you going to spend yours?’ In the photo, he posed with his teenage girlfriend Paris, whom he married in 2008, his eldest daughter Venezuela (12), his sons Prince John James (9), Prince Tyson Fury II (5 ), Prince Adonis Amaziah (2), his daughter Valence (4) and Athena, eight months.
Tyson and his three boys wore matching red “Gypsy King” brand tracksuits, showing their support for their champion boxer father. He chatted with Piers Morgan on Talk TV about shutting it down, telling the host, “When’s enough?”
He explained: “I still have my brains, I can still talk. I have a beautiful wife and six children. I have countless belts, I have lots of money. Success, fame, glory.
“Why am I doing it more? Boxing is a very dangerous sport. You can be knocked out with one punch, and it only takes one bad luck punch and you can’t get up from this canvas. Every good dog has his day.”
He added: “And as a good Roman leader said, there will always be someone else to fight. When is enough enough?” He beat Whyte with a sixth-round knockout in front of a crowd of 94,000.
