Tyson Fury’s nutritionist reveals he’s eating like a child ahead of Ngannou bout
TYSON FURY is eating a breakfast fit for a child ahead of his showdown with Francis Ngannou.
The Gyspy King faces the former UFC heavyweight champion in a controversial crossover clash a fortnight on Saturday.
Fury’s ten-rounder with Ngannou has been slammed by the boxing world, with many believing he’s making a mockery of the sport with the fight.
And judging by his pre-fight diet ofand chicken nuggets, he’s not taking the Cameroonian clubber too seriously.
Fury’s nutritionist George Lockhart told Betway: “He’s got a lot of funny guilty pleasures!
“He’s definitely got a sweet tooth too, but if you bread stuff and crisp stuff up, it’s definitely a lot more enjoyable than a regular grilled chicken.
“But I think it’s because he’s got seven kids, you know what I’m saying?
“Just probably indulging in a couple of freaking chicken nuggets here and there!”
WBC heavyweight champion Fury, 35, also isn’t a fan of veg, which Lockhart has to sneak into his meals,
He revealed: “He’s not a big fan of veg, so I cook a lot for longof time to mask the flavour.

“I’ll do it with chicken broth or bone broth. Or you can do it in a rice for a long period of time, so you can’t really taste it and blend it in.
“But as the camp progresses, obviously veg has got to go up to make sure they’re getting all their micronutrients.”
Although he regularly consumesand chicken nugs, Lockhart does his utmost to ensure Fury’s diet is an overbalanced one.
He said of the Wythenshawe warrior’s daily intake: “It’s a mixture of everything, every single meal.
“I actually give a lot of lean pork to him and Joseph (Parker). Chicken too.
“I’ll do red meat on days that they’re off, to give their body the time to digest.
“Red meat is the most nutrient-dense meat out there, but it also takes time to digest, so I don’t want to be giving it to him every day.”
Fan favourite Fury is seemingly using MMA man-mountain Ngannou as a warm-up bout for his long-overdue undisputed heavyweight title fight with Oleksandr Usyk, which SunSports understands is on course to take place on December 23.
