'It's not about money, I drive an 07 Passat!' – Fury proves he's the people's champ with shock confession after Whyte KO

TYSON FURY admitted to driving an 07 Passat after knocking out Dillian Whyte last night.

The Gypsy King brought the curtain down on a sensational, undefeated career by producing a sensational sixth-round knockout of compatriot Whyte.


In stepping away from the sport, Fury will pass up more lucrative fights down the road.

But the Gypsy King believes there are more important things than money.

After his farewell fight, he delivered an impassioned speech about what he values dearest amid his retirement.

He said: "Every good dog has its day.

"And I know Frank (Warren) will be unhappy about that. And Top Rank, there's a lot of money to be earned.

"But, for me, I come from f*** all, I come from nothing. It's never been about money, I'm not a money person.

"I drive around in an 07 Passat on 56 point diesel. I don't care, I don't care what I've got.

"It's never been about money with 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 with me, it's not been about legacies.

"It's not been about anything apart from punching a motherf***ing face in on the night.

"That's all it's ever been about, excuse the language.

"All I ever want to do is win, money aside. Money is beautiful, it's great. It's great to be paid for what you do."

He then added: "Ben Davison told me, if you enjoy something and you're good at it, you'll get paid for it.

"So I enjoyed boxing, I was good at it and I've been paid for it. But it's not the be all and end all or anything.

If you're a good person in here, and you've got f*** all, you'll do for me

"I can end up in a council flat at any time, don't worry about that. So it is what it is, would it change me as a person? Do I need mansion? And a Rolls Royce?

"I don't. I've got them. But I don't need them. It doesn't make you as a man.

"A man is what you are in here (points at chest). And if you're a good person in here, and you've got f*** all, you'll do for me.

"If you're a millionaire and you're horrible, I don't want to know you, because I've only got time for good people."

Fury delivered an amazing uppercut to end Whyte's title chances for now.

But the Gypsy King believes that the Body Snatcher can become a world champion in future, with the beaten star even claiming that he wasn't "outclassed" on the night.

FURY VS WILDER – ROUND BY ROUND

R1

Fury arrived draped in a St George’s cross gown, for the patron’s day, with a handful of towels wrapped around his shoulders, making his 6ft 9in, 19st frame look even more imposing.

In a huge shock it was Whyte and not switch-hitting Fury who started in the unfamiliar southpaw stance.

The Brixon Body Snatcher aimed lead right hooks at Fury’s torso and he replied with right hands into Whyte’s high guard.

R2

Whte reverted to his orthodox stance for the second and threw his first huge right haymaker, missing Fury by miles and almost demolishing the ring by crashing his shot into the ropes.

Fury threw the more accurate shots, Whyte caught most of them but couldn’t land his trademark counters.

R3

Fury scored points with a couple of lead left hooks and made the crowd whoop with a double-jab-right-cross.

Whyte was always marching forward but Fury was tagging him expertly on the backfoot. The 13lbs Fury had trained off since the final magnificent Deontay Wilder win was helping him dance around the outskirts of the ring once again, like the 2015 glory days when he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko.

R4

There was a crunching clash of heads at the very start of the fiurth and respoected ref Mark Lyson had to warn them both.

Whyte landed his first clubbing left hook but then had a heavyweight wrestle and the little official was brave to get in between almost 40st of raging bull.

R5

Fury’s trainer Sugar Hill Steward told his man to dance and jab in the fifth and avoid the roughhousing.

Whyte seemed to wobble from a left hook but he looked at the canvas like he was searching for divot and laughed it off.

Fury then cracked in a one-two that almost definitely hurt the former kickboxer and he started to use the better body blows.

R6

Fury was bouncing and moving between clever attacks, his love handles rippling with his flow.

Then there was a ten second warning for the end of tehe round and Fury detonated a magnificent uppercut for the ages.

The Brixton man collapsed and bravely tried to beat the count but he was sprawling and crawing against the tide and the referee rightly waved it off to save him.
