Tyson Fury’s nutritionist has revealed all on the Gypsy King’s incredible pre-fight diet going into his trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder.
Ahead of his third, and most likely final, fight with fellow heavyweight Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury’s nutritionist has revealed his 5,000-calorie-a-day diet that the Gpsy King has been following pre-fight.
After their first bout ended in a controversial draw, and their second was won by Fury, the two heavyweight giants will lock horns once again this weekend with their trilogy fight taking place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
There is no doubt the Englishman will be doing all he can to hold onto his WBC heavyweight title, and a key component to a potential success will of course be his all-important fight preparation.
As a result, the 33-year-old’s nutritionist George Lockhart opened up on the Gypsy King’s remarkable diet that will have him ready and raring to go for this weekend’s title bout.
Lockhart, speaking to leading coffee retailer Coffee Friend, said: “Tyson consumes 5000 calories a day – one fish, one chicken, and one red meat throughout the day in each one of his meals.
“First thing in the morning Tyson is definitely going to have a coffee with his breakfast and what he eats is dictated by the activities of the day.
“But one thing that’s constant every single day is he has: one fish, one chicken, and one red meat throughout the day in each one of his meals. It might go up and it might go down but he consumes about 5000 calories a day.”
Lockhart is no stranger to working alongside some of the biggest names in sport, having previously been part of UFC star Conor McGregor’s team, whilst being a former MMA fighter himself.
After spending time within the Fury team he is more than confident the Englishman will dominate Wilder once more come the early hours of Sunday morning.
He added: “If Deontay Wilder makes it out of the third round I’ll be shocked… Fury puts him away before that.
“I have seen first hand in camp that Tyson Fury keeps on getting better and better. If I’m being honest, while I know Wilder is a big puncher – and this is a bold statement – if Wilder makes it out of the third round I’ll be shocked. I truly believe. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
