Tyson Fury spends £3 on charity shop sunglasses days after landing £22m pay day

Tyson Fury opted to spend £3 on a new pair of sunglasses from a charity shop less than two weeks after his net worth soared by £22.5million thanks to his demolition of Dillian Whyte.

The self-proclaimed Gypsy King, who has insisted that he will not be fighting again professionally after his 32nd win, was spotted out and about in Wilmslow, Cheshire on Friday (April 29).

During the family day in town, Fury nipped into the local Cancer Research shop in a bid to protect his eyes from the sun, taking a snap with a fan after leaving with his new fashion accessory.

Fury's decision not to splash out on a designer pair will not come as a shock to his biggest fans, with it being revealed in the past that he pays himself a 'modest' annual salary of £70,000.

He is said to have spent just £3 by The Sun, who quote an onlooker as saying: “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."

Fury said after his blockbuster Wembley triumph that he will be stepped away from professional boxing to spend more time with wife Paris and their six children.

The family live near the Morecambe coast, and posed for an Instagram upload in matching tracksuits before another family trip.

Following his retirement announcement, in which he said he still wants to fight in exhibitions with eyes on UFC king Francis Ngannou, Fury said: "I’ve enjoyed my career.

"It’s been a fantastic career and I’m 34 at the minute and every good dog has its day.

"There’s a lot of money to be earned but for me, I’ve come from f*** all, I’ve come from nothing. It’s never been about money, I’m not a money person, I drive around in an 07′ Passat.

"I don’t care what I’ve got, it’s never been about money to me. I know a lot of people with money, big money, but none of them are happy, not one of them and I know money can’t make happiness.

"It’s not even been about belts for me, it’s not been about legacies, it’s not been about anything apart from punching a motherf*****’s face right in on the night. That’s all it’s ever been about.

"All I ever want to do is win… The money is beautiful, it’s great to be paid for what you do.

"I enjoy boxing, I was good at it and I’ve been paid for it, but it’s not the be all and end all of anything."

But despite those words, Top Rank boss Bob Arum insists that Fury still has fight plans.
