Fury Utilizing Nutritionist In Comeback
One major point of conversation regarding Tyson Fury’s comeback was his weight. Following his 2015 victory over Wladimir Klitschko, Fury would be beset by professional and personal problems which would force him away from the ring and expand his waistline.
Fury is working with nutritionist Greg Marriott, who also oversaw Kell Brook’s weight cut to 147lbs, Marriott broke down Fury’s weight loss plan to SKY sports, claiming the focus starts at Weight management.
“It’s about weight management at the moment. He’s not training hard while he’s heavy because he’s prone to injury, so he’s doing low-intensity stuff and managing his diet. He’s breaking into training easily.”
Most of Fury’s weight cutting is based around a high fat and low carb diet and calorie counting. Marriott is focusing Fury on a 3,500 calorie diet based around 1,000 calorie workouts.
Marriott also wants to see a leaner Fury against a more musclebound Joshua.
“Tyson wants to be 18-and-a-half stone (259 pounds). I looked at Anthony Joshua when he fought Carlos Takam, and being so musclebound will take energy from you. It’s hard for Joshua to take muscle off. It’s not about being the bigger man, it’s a fitness game. To put on the show that Tyson wants, you have to be light so you can move for 12 rounds.”
