TYSON FURY admitted he felt “very proud” as he reflected on his incredible body transformation from the past five years.
The Gypsy King has managed to battle his way back to the top of heavyweight boxing after ballooning up to 27 stone.
Fury’s career spiralled out of control following his sensational victory over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.
The British superstar piled on the pounds as he struggled with depression, alcoholism and drug addiction.
He revealed he was drinking up to 18 pints of lager per day during the dark period of his life.
But the 31-year-old has proved to be a global icon after pulling himself back to the brink to achieve his goals.
Fury shed a whopping 10 stone by gorging on a diet that included yogurt and berries for breakfast and curry for dinner.
And the heavyweight achieved the unthinkable when he dethroned Deontay Wilder to claim the WBC belt, weighing 19st 7lb.
He has been keeping himself fit and active during lockdown by doing Instagram live workouts with his wife Paris.
The 6ft 9in powerhouse looks in incredible shape as he prepares for his trilogy fight against the Bronze Bomber in February.
Talking to his 3.7million Instagram followers, Fury shared a photograph of himself at 27 stone alongside an inspirational message
He wrote: “Thought I post this as I’m very proud of what I’ve accomplished in the last five years.
“And it goes to show you can achieve anything you dream and desire, in this pic I was 17 stone taken in 2017.”
