Tyson Fury: I Looked Like a Fat Pig on Television

Undefeated British/Commonwealth heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (15-0, 10KOs) is changing his lifestyle and getting himself into shape. Fury takes on journeyman Nicolai Firtha at Belfast's Kings Hall on September 17th. After recently watching himself on television, the 22-year-old was upset with his physical condition. He felt it was time for a change.

"I looked at myself on TV and didn't like what I saw. I looked like a fat pig. Against John McDermott, I was more than 19st — not the sort of condition a top-level athlete should be in. It was never the training with me. I'd put everything and more into gym work and sparring. It's been the food — plenty of junk," Fury said to The Sun.

"In the past, If I went to the movies I'd have to have a box of popcorn, a bag of sweets, ice-creams and a big bottle of pop. Now I'll take a fruit salad and a big bottle of water. The main thing I've been cutting out is fizzy drinks. I'm just drinking up to five litres of water a day, eating lots of fruit and veg and it has made a hell of a difference."

Im surprised Tyson Fury has access to Television, must have bought a stolen from his sisters uncle.

I woudn't say that to your face, but you read my mind. The K bros stay in killer shape, and that's what it's going to take, nothing less. Unless you're willing to settle for a paper championsip or none at all.
