Champ’s insane two year transformation
Tyson Fury has again taken to social media to show off his remarkable body transformation over the last two years.
The 31-year-old capped off his comeback last weekend by knocking out Deontay Wilder to become WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

Posting four shirtless pictures illustrating his differing weights to Instagram, the star wrote: “Been an amazing comeback over the last 2 years. Thank you for the support.”
Last week’s victory over Wilder was the culmination of a remarkable journey back to stardom, having previously been in the boxing wilderness amid his battles with mental health issues away from the ring.
At his heaviest, the Brit hero had ballooned to 171 kilograms.
But with help from boxing legend Ricky Hatton, and latterly Ben Davison, Fury battled his way back to fitness and returned to the sport in June 2018 when he fought Sefer Seferi.
The Gypsy King has since seen off Francesco Pianeta, Tom Schwarz, Otto Wallin and Wilder on his way to boxing immortality.
Ahead of his first clash with the Bronze Bomber in December 2018, friend and camp manager Timothy Allcock was his personal cook — with peanut butter chicken on the menu virtually every night.
For the second Wilder fight, however, Fury turned to Conor McGregor’s nutritionist George Lockhart.
And the former US marine and MMA fighter rustled up a diet to get Fury into pristine shape in order to definitively defeat Wilder once and for all.
It involved six meals a day — including two lunches and two dinners.
Fury would eat Greek yoghurt with berries for breakfast, before tucking into salmon cakes with jalapeños, cilantro and more yoghurt.
Then would come skewered chicken with tzatziki sauce for his second lunch – before moving on his dinners.
First up he would wolf down a red meat curry with turmeric, before devouring apple and cranberry stuffed pork loin with butternut squash, quinoa, walnuts and spinach.
Finally, for supper would come sriracha honey salmon laid out on a bed of quinoa and rice.
The bulky, powerful star weighed in at 123 kilograms for the hotly-anticipated rematch, and was able to overpower and outbox Wilder in Las Vegas to clinch the WBC title — justifying his position as the most talked about man in boxing.
