Tyson Fury, the former heavyweight boxing champ who calls himself the 'Gypsy King', has offered his services to help create little gypsy prince or princess - at the cost of £50,000 a pop.

The 28-year-old has taken to Twitter to make the pricey offer, posting a photo of himself in the ring holding his championship belts and writing: "Get a son off the undisputed heavyweight champion, studding fees £50k plus vat [value added tax] a pop".

Fury has been married to wife Paris since 2009.

He hasn't fought in the ring since he defeated Ukranian Wladimir Klitschko in 2005.

Fury was forced to pull out of his highly anticipated rematch with Klitschko in June last year and was stripped of all three of his belts after failing to prove his medical status to the WBO and IBF boxing chiefs on October 5.

The vacant WBO belt was won by Joseph Parker after he defeated Andy Ruiz Jr in December.

In early March, Fury announced his return to the ring with a bout on May 13.

Fury is set to land in New Zealand next month to support his cousin Hughie Fury as he takes on Parker who is defending his WBO title.
