World boxing champ Tyson Fury takes trip to discount store Home Bargains despite being worth an estimated £70million

WORLD boxing champ Tyson Fury boxed clever with his cash yesterday — on a trip to Home Bargains.

The fighter, 31, who is estimated to be worth around £70million, bought his kids presents at his local discount store after returning from Las Vegas.

He was earlier greeted by hundreds of fans at Manchester airport before wife Paris drove him home to Morecambe, Lancs.

Fury, who beat Deontay Wilder to win the WBC heavyweight title after weeks away at training camp, was reunited with his five children and took his four eldest to buy gifts.

An onlooker said: “It was amazing to see.

"Tyson has just banked millions from his fight and could buy them anything they want.

“But as all parents know, children are happy with any gift and Home Bargains has a decent toy selection so the children were delighted.

“He was mobbed by well-wishers as he left, but he was happy to pose for pictures and sign autographs.

“He’s well known in Morecambe and enjoys living there, so he doesn’t want to change anything with his home life.

“He’s looking forward to going back to normal life for a few months before his promoter works out who he is fighting next.”

Fury was already worth more than £30m before last weekend's fight in Las Vegas.

Fury's purse from the Wilder rematch was £3.86m.

Both fighters also made £30million, including profits from up to three million pay-per-view sales on both sides of the Atlantic.

He is now expected to either fight Wilder for a third time, or face fellow Brit Anthony Joshua in a potential £400million all-British world heavyweight title unifier clash.

Fury still lives in Morecambe, in a five-bed, four-bathroom home that is worth around £550,000.

The Gypsy King made the fading seaside town his permanent home in 2011, and has since become its most famous resident.

Speaking on a three-part ITV documentary, the 31-year-old 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."

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.

He loves the local pub, gym and cafe where they trim the fat off his bacon.
