  • Tyson Fury has undergone an insane body transformation.
  • At his heaviest, Fury got “as fat as a pig” and weighed a whopping 27 stone (378 pounds) but he has now lost 98 pounds and is almost fighting fit.
  • Fury returns to the ring on June 9 – and should he succeed, he will be targeting the sport’s biggest hitters like Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.

Tyson Fury has undergone an insane body transformation and could face big-hitting boxers Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua after his comeback bout on June 9.

Fury last fought in 2015 when he dethroned former heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko in a boxing masterclass at the ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany.

He has since experienced depression,abused cocaine, and got as “fat as a pig” – ballooning to 27 stone (378 pounds) in weight.

In 2017, Fury posted a topless photograph alongside former two weight world boxing champion Ricky Hatton – and his shocking physique did not befit a former heavyweight champion.

But after linking up with nutritionist Greg Marriot and boxing coach Ben Davison, Fury has finally fought off the fat.

Fury has trained hard, adhered to a strict 3,500 calorie per day ketogenic diet, and has managed to lose a whopping 98 pounds.

His transformation is impressive.


Fury now weighs around 20 stone (280 pounds) and wants to enter the ring weighing approximately 18.5 stone (259 pounds) next month.

Should he win his comeback bout, it is likely he will start targeting boxing’s biggest hitters like Alabama big man Deontay Wilder and unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

He even sent a warning to both fighters when he confirmed his ring return at a press conference last month. In the Independent, Fury called Joshua a “big old dosser.” He complimented Wilder’s punching power but still claimed Wilder and Joshua were both “vulnerable” and “beatable.”

Now Fury is back in boxing, he wants to reclaim “what is rightfully” his – and that means Wilder and Joshua’s heavyweight titles.

Only time will tell if he succeeds.
