TYSON FURY'S box office credentials have never been in doubt – after once having three huge TV's delivered to his Morecambe home.
The Gypsy King, 33, is a global superstar ahead of his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder, but insists he will never forget his roots – and these are laid in the seaside town of Morecambe.
The WBC heavyweight champion of the world lives in a five-bed, four-bathroom home that is worth over £550,000, according to Zoopla.
Fury had plenty of time to enjoy his home comforts during the coronavirus pandemic, before throwing himself into boot camp.
He made the fading seaside town his permanent home in 2011, and has since become its most famous resident with crowds flocking to see him train on the beach.
Speaking on a three-part ITV documentary last year, he said: "People say to me, 'Why don't you live in California or America?' – why would I?
"Why would I abandon my own country for a bit of money and some fame?
"I love it. I would never leave Morecambe. It's true beauty. If the weather was better, every house here would be a million quid."
Before he amassed what is now thought to be around £100m following one of the great sporting comebacks, Fury lived in a caravan on his dad John's land.
But now he is the king of his own castle along with wife Paris and their children.
Inside the family home are links to the profession he will go down in history for.
Just next to a glass column holding the multitude of belts the heavyweight has won in his career is a framed picture of him after his win against Wladimir Klitschko on the wall.
That victory was regarded as one of the finest successes for British boxing – but he might be beating his own claim when fighting again later this month.
The neighbourhood have embraced the Fury family much like he has embraced MorecambeThere won't be any household rubbish lying around the house for too long – despite reaching the pinnacle of his profession, Fury is happy to roll his sleeves up and take out the rubbish.
But there are definite luxuries he can enjoy too.
Parked up are a Ferrari and Rolls Royce. But it is a mode of transport closely linked to his heritage that the 6ft 9ins powerhouse prefers to focus on.
Fury also had three 75-inch £800 Samsung Smart TVs delivered to his plush pad earlier this year.
Away from the ring, Fury has restored and customised a gypsy wagon that he proudly treks through the streets – after spending over four years renovating.
Speaking about the four-wheeler, Fury said: "[It's] real gold, gold leaf, all hand-painted.
"The Gypsy code says you must travel towards the sun, so we keep the sun towards the back."
Quietly going about his life, Fury has participated in charity work for children's hospitals, offered help and advice to aspiring boxers and supported local businesses.
That's why the boxer, a reformed character after his battle with depression, drug and alcohol abuse, is a real man of the people in these parts.
