The Brit has not fought since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 due to a drugs ban.

He is free to return and has set his sights on world champion Anthony Joshua , although that fight is likely to still be some way off.

Fury has already lost four stone in his attempts to get back in the ring but knows he must shed more weight.

And his nutritionist has provided an insight into how the former world champion is cutting down.

Fury is currently eating around seven meals a day, consuming 3,500 calories.

"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," Marriott told Sky Sports.

You can then start cutting weight - this is the healthy way to do it."

A typical breakfast for Fury is low-carb rye bread, avocado, eggs and lean bacon as he looks to drop to 18-and-a-half stone.

"Tyson will be getting a few good meals. If you do this diet right, you can have a cheat meal and get away with eating as much rubbish as possible within a three hour window. But you can't do that every weekend!"
