Tommy Fury gained THREE STONE after binging on £300 of ‘junk food’
TOMMY FURY gained THREE STONE after binging on £300 worth of cheesecake plus pizzas and burgers following his win over Jake Paul.
The former Love Islander ended two years of bitter feuding with YouTuber-turned boxer Paul in February.
Fury weighed 184.5lb (13st 1lb) the night before his split-decision win in Saudi Arabia.
And the reality TV star – believed to have made over £3MILLION for the fight – reaped the rewards of his pay-per-view victory.
So much so that in an interview with The Times, it was revealed he went up three stone meaning he would have weighed over 16 STONE.
But Fury explained that, having restricted himself to a diet during his training camp, he makes up for lost time after the bout.
He said: “My logic — and it’s terrible – is that between fights I try to cram as much c**p as I can into my body so that when I have to get back in shape I’m sick of junk food.”
After beating Paul over eight rounds, he ate £300 worth of cheesecake while gorging on pizzas, burgers and milkshakes.
He added: “Everything that was bad for you, it was in that hotel room that night.”
Fury, 24, returned from the Middle East with bragging rights, his reputation and unbeaten record intact.

And after handing Paul, 26, a first defeat, he saved his own boxing career in the process.
Fury admitted: “Hand on heart, 100 per cent. I wouldn’t even be able to show my face in public for a long time.
“I’ve been boxing all my life and then I lose to a YouTuber? That would have been the biggest joke.”
Fury now goes into a second consecutive celebrity boxing blockbuster next Saturday in Manchester.
This time, it will come against Paul’s arch rival KSI, 30, who has five wins, one draw and a no-contest in the ring.
It is claimed Fury will earn another £1.1m for the bout, which will be broadcast on DAZN PPV in both the UK and US.
And despite the allure of a rematch with Paul or a fight against the American’s older brother Logan, 28, Fury insisted he must win a traditional boxing gold.
He said: “For me to be truly satisfied, I have to get my hands on title belts.
“I don’t want to sit in the rocking chair at 70 thinking I could have challenged for a world title, I could have been in contention.
“I want my name to go down in history for ever.”
