WBC boxing champion, Tyson Fury has revealed he turned down his son’s offer of a Rolls-Royce worth $500,000.

John Fury, 58, said the world boxing champ, 35, tricked him into going to a car shop, saying he wanted to buy a car for his wife Paris.

Fury recalled: ‘I see the price. It’s a £500,000 car. I said, ‘She doesn’t need that to do the school run.’

‘We had a little bit of an argument and he said, ‘No dad, it’s yours.

‘You are driving a 30-year-old car around.’ John was ‘gobsmacked’ but told Tyson: ‘It’s not me.

‘I’m not a poser and I don’t want to try to be in anybody’s face.

‘I don’t want to make people jealous.

‘I love my VW. It’s got memories from when I was a young man.’

He said the car dealer near Manchester, UK told him nobody had ever turned down a Rolls-Royce Phantom II before.

John admitted he was choked up by his son’s generosity but added: ‘But give me a cheese sandwich, a cup of tea and put me a western on and I’m away.’
