Tyson Fury, the heavyweight boxing champion, has been forbidden from cooking meals at home by his wife Paris, following a particularly unpleasant incident. Paris Fury, in her second book, details an occasion where Tyson served what she describes as "slop" to their children after spending five hours preparing it. The dismal meal still haunts Paris to this day, as she recalls the house being filled with the stench of "rotten dog food".
Paris Fury recounts the ordeal in which her husband attempted to serve up a plate of "lumpy grey sludge" to their family. She writes, "It looked absolutely disgusting." Despite Tyson's successes in the boxing ring, his skills in the kitchen leave much to be desired. Paris now only permits him access to the kitchen for meal consumption and spending time with their children.
Neighbour's Dog to the Rescue
Paris reveals that none of the family members were willing to try the unappetizing dish, including Tyson himself. Consequently, the entire meal ended up being fed to their neighbor's dog. Paris humorously adds, "Other than manning the summer barbecue… my husband is now banned from any cooking duties. It's just not worth the hassle."
During the pandemic, like many people, Tyson Fury developed a strong "craving" for nostalgic dishes from his childhood. One particular favorite was bacon pudding, which brought back fond memories for the heavyweight champion. However, Tyson acknowledges that such comfort food is off-limits when he is training for a fight.
Strict Training Diet
Paris Fury is well aware of the importance of her husband following a strict diet when in training camp. Before Tyson's rise to fame and fortune, Paris used to cook his meals herself. However, now that the couple can afford a full-time nutritionist and chef, Tyson is provided with a low-carb, protein-rich diet tailored to his specific needs.
Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, will not be indulging in any comfort food for the foreseeable future. He has back-to-back fights scheduled, beginning with a controversial crossover clash against former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou on October 28. Following that, Fury will enter training camp for his long-awaited undisputed heavyweight title fight against unified king Oleksandr Usyk, expected to take place on December 23.
