Tyson and his family have been living in a £550,000 house overlooking Morecambe Bay, and they have now bought a second home nearby.

 

 

Tyson Fury has returned home to the UK after retaining his WBC heavyweight boxing crown.

 

 

The Gyspy King lives in Morecambe with his wife Paris and their six children.

The family reside in a £550,000 house overlooking the beautiful Morecambe Bay, but they have now bought a second home nearby.

 

The couple have been partying in Las Vegas with family and friends since his sensational victory over Deontay Wilder in Sin City in the early hours of Sunday morning.

But now they can’t wait to relax with their family after buying the new £1.7million home.

 

 

It has more room for their their three daughters, Venezuela, 12, Valencia, three, and two month old Athena, and three sons, Prince John James, nine, Prince Tyson II, four, and Prince Adonis, two.

 

 

Land Registry documents show the property was bought for £1,695,000 in December last year by Tyson Fury Ltd.

 

 

The boxer says his family is now “deeply rooted” in the quiet town, where people have adopted the Manchester born sporting superstar as one of their own.

Tyson’s neighbours Christine Newby, 75, and Pauline Wade, 75, woke in the early hours of Sunday to watch the big fight together.

 

 

Christine said: “Tyson is very popular around here. We all like him and his family, they are lovely.

“He has done very well for himself and he deserves it, he has worked so hard for it.”

 

 

She added: “He loves it around here, the views of the Bay are beautiful.”

Earlier this year Tyson helped Pauline to her feet when she stumbled outside her bungalow.

 

 

“He came straight over and asked ‘are you ok’ and he helped me up. He is a lovely man. He will always say ‘I’m going to the shops do you want anything’.”

She added: “I never watched boxing before I knew Tyson and even now I only watch his fights. He is fantastic.”

 

 

Another neighbour Grace Griffiths said: “You see him running up and down the road when he is training.

“He also runs along the promenade and I’ve tried to keep up with him but he is very fit” she laughed.

 

 

She added: “He is really friendly and we are all really pleased for him.”

Christine Thornton, 72, said: “What he has achieved is fabulous and the whole town is proud of him, as it should be.

 

 

“You see him walking around, going shopping, and he always stops and talks to people.

“He is a big friendly guy who has so much time for people.”

 

 

At the statue of the town’s other famous son, comedian Eric Morecambe, day tripper Richard Eley, 41, from Telford, Shropshire, said he was well aware of the boxer’s connection to the area.

Richard is a pal of former WBC super-middleweight champion Richie Woodall.

 

 

And he said: “Richie told me many years ago that Tyson was one to watch. He told me he was going to be a great fighter and I’ve followed his career ever since.

“I watched the fight on Sunday and it was fantastic.”

 

 

Mike Greenall, The Mayor of Lancaster, which includes Morecambe, said on Tuesday: “On behalf of the whole district I’d like to send my whole hearted congratulations to Tyson on this magnificent achievement.

 

 

“It was a sensational performance and I’m delighted his hard work and perseverance have deservedly reaped the rewards they so richly deserve.

 

 

Having a world champion in our midst is something our district can be rightly proud of.”

 

 

Last year Paris told ITV’s Loose Women programme they were having to move to a new home because so many fans kept knocking on their door.

 

 

She said: “We’re in the process of moving house because we’ve had too many people at the door – too many strangers knocking.

 

 

“We have people coming to the house and the kids are opening the door and we don’t know who they’re opening the door to. It’s not what we need. It’s not the ideal situation.”

 

But Tyson has praised Morecambe, saying: “People say to me, ‘Why don’t you live in California’. But why would I?”

 

 

Adding: “I would never leave Morecambe. It’s true beauty. If the weather was better, every house here would be a million quid.”

 

And in a recent TV interview with ex England footballer Gary Neville, he said of the town: “I can’t be in a place that’s thriving everyday and there’s so much to do. I like to be in a place where there’s nothing much to do. Just train, eat, sleep, repeat.”
