British boxer Tyson Fury noticeably slimmed down ahead of his title fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship against Ukraine's Oleksandr Usyk. The transformation was aided by renowned nutritionist Greg Marriott, reports Men's Health.

The Usyk-Fury fight will take place on May 18 at the Kingdom Arena in the Saudi Arabian capital, Riyadh. Both the Ukrainian and the Briton hold all the major belts - WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO, and WBC.

Marriott began working with the Gypsy King back in 2018. However, it's only now that he has fully won Fury's favor, promising excellent shape for the champions' battle against Usyk. The dietitian has become the main architect of Fury's daily routine.

"I do absolutely everything, I wake him up with his collagen. I don’t leave fighters to anything. I literally live with him. I sit with him. I make sure that I watch him take the vitamins. I don't want no stone unturned. For me, I give them 100% so I do everything," Marriott said.

The most challenging aspect for the nutritionist was Fury's dietary habits. The specialist dubbed the boxer a traditional Britisher due to his love for sausages and aversion to vegetables. However, Marriott found a solution to this predicament. He transitioned the Gypsy King to lean beef sausages and cleverly incorporated vegetables into his meals. The primary goal for the dietitian at the training camp was to provide 'fuel.'"

According to Marriott, Fury's daily intake on training days ranges from 4500 to 6000 calories. On rest days, the figure decreases to three thousand calories. A change that the specialist takes pride in is switching the boxer to a six-meal-a-day regimen instead of his usual two.

Upon waking up: high dose of vitamin C, collagen, black coffee

Breakfast: two sourdough toasts, avocado spread with fresh garlic Tabasco and black pepper. Three whole eggs. Fresh plum tomatoes and about 250g of lean beef sausages. Or oatmeal and protein with fresh nuts and chia seeds. Or a large omelet.

Cheating meals: allowed, but not often, not in large quantities, and not blatant fast food.

In the upcoming weekend, the world may witness the best version of Fury. A revolutionary training plan should yield dividends. "I think for this fight, he just thought 'I just want to get back to looking great', and with that comes feeling great too, and being able to do the rounds," Marriott stated.
