I'm earning millions to fight Jake Paul but life won't change, I'll still shop at Tesco after I KO him, says Tommy Fury | The Sun
TOMMY FURY is set to earn millions for fighting Jake Paul – but he will never be too rich or famous for his weekly Tesco shop.
The unbeaten British boxing star looks to settle the score with YouTuber Paul in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, 4,000 miles away from home in Manchester.
And his purse is believed to be more than £2MILLION for the celebrity grudge match.
But Fury – who welcomed baby daughter Bambi into the world last month – has vowed to remain down to Earth.
He told SunSport in Riyadh: "The money will be good, 100 per cent, but my life, will it change? No.
“I’ll still sleep in the same bed, I’ll still drive the same car, I’ll still go to Tesco on the weekends to stock up.

“I’ll still go on my same holidays and that’s it. I’m a real simple guy, I like to eat junk food, that’s my main thing.
“I’m not going to be living in Beverly Hills in LA or California, buying £1million watches and stuff like that. I’m not going to do that.
“I’m not interested in that, my life will not change at all.”
Leaving behind baby Bambi and girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague is just one of the painful sacrifices Fury has made to finally fight Paul.

But once the bad blood is buried in the Diriyah desert, he plans to celebrate with his two biggest fans waiting at home.
Fury added: “That’s what I’m looking forward to most, getting back, all the talk is over, and then I can just go about my business.
“Go back home, spend time with my daughter, my missus and just be a family man for the next few months.”
Fury has been afforded THREE chances of facing Paul, having twice pulled out before amid injury and US visa issues.
It has kept the verbal feud festering for over two years but Fury promised now is the time to let his fists do the talking.
He said: "I’m definitely relieved we’re here, at the end of the days it’s been a long road.
“It’s been two and a half years in the making, we’re here now and I can’t wait for Sunday.
“Everybody can see, by the way I’m sat here, I’m confident, calm, relaxed.
'I’m not spouting a load of bulls*** down the phone. I’m here, I’m waiting for Sunday night.”

Fury is joined by his heavyweight champion brother Tyson, 34, for the fight of his life, following years watching and learning.
He said: "At the end of the day, even though this will only be my ninth professional fight, I’ve got buckets loads of experience.
“I’ve been around Tyson, been around world title fights, the fights with Deontay Wilder, been in the changing rooms for all of that, around the fight weeks.
“I’ve seen how it’s down and seen how it’s handled by the best. So I’m just taking that and putting it into my arsenal.
“I know my levels, it would be different if I was going up against a real 50/50 fight but the reality of it is, this isn't it a 50/50 fight.
“I know I’m better than this man and when you have that feeling in your mind, it becomes easy and it becomes enjoyable.”
Fury simply cannot picture a loss against Paul and warned the YouTuber-turned boxer will taste both the deck and defeat.
He predicted: “I will knock him out. I will knock Jake Paul out, very early.
