"People think he should be eating way more.

"He’s feeling great, he’s recovering quickly. That was a shocker for me, for a 6ft 9 heavyweight that’s highly active – I expected more as well."

Fury's nutrient-rich meals pack plenty of sodium to ensure he stays hydrated throughout the day.

But Lockhart insists the man-mountain could still perform at a high level in a fasted state.

He said: "Most guys that I work with, they’ll do a lifting session and the next day they’ll be lighter.

"Tyson will actually be heavier.

"Tyson’s more fat adaptive than he is carb adaptive; most fighters are more carb adaptive.

"When we did the 30lbs in 30 days, it was crazy, he could fast for two days and then do 20 rounds.

"Everyone in the gym would be like, 'Bro, we’re done.'

"And he’d want to do more. It shows that he’s fat adaptive, he can keep going.
