Tyson Fury spotted at McDonald’s drive-thru in new Land Rover Defender as he prepares for Anthony Joshua fight

TYSON FURY put training ahead of his mouth-watering fight with Anthony Joshua to one side… by stopping off at McDonald’s.

The heavyweight champion dropped into the drive-thru in a new Land Rover Defender to gorge on the guilty pleasure in his hometown of Morecambe.

Fury, who once ballooned to 28 stone at the beginning of 2017, was at the wheel with an unknown man in the passenger seat.

Even with the biggest fight of his career just a few months away, the 32-year-old still likes to treat himself to a cheat day.

During the first coronavirus lockdown, Fury admitted he forked out £557 on takeaway pizza.

And recently he told LadBible: “I had a treat day yesterday, actually: a full box of Thornton’s chocolates. I had a Sunday dinner, two bowls of trifle, a McDonald’s triple cheeseburger, two Diet Cokes and a bar of chocolate.”

Standing at 6ft9in and training relentlessly every day, the WBC Champ can afford to polish off a burger and fries on the rare occasion.

Fury has previously shown he has no issue in dropping the pounds after losing a staggering 10 stone to fight Deontay Wilder.

Negotiations for his undisputed bout with Joshua are still ongoing but confirmation is closer than ever.

SunSport understands a July fight in Saudi Arabia, worth in the region of £200million, is the most likely option.

On Tuesday, AJ confirmed he had held a ‘positive meeting’ with his management team.

He wrote: “Another positive meeting with @258mgt.

“They’ve informed me things are shaping up nicely.

“They will be sharing the update with Eddie (Hearn) and you’ll be hearing from me soon.”

His comments were recently echoed by Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn who revealed just minor details in the contract need to be tweaked.

He said: “To be honest with you I don’t really wanna talk about the fight because I keep saying the same thing, don’t I? ‘Two weeks, hopefully it’ll be done’.

“I don’t wanna bore people, but I said to Bob, ‘I’m getting asked about it 20 times a day in interviews, what do you want me to say?’

“So what I’ll tell you – and I don’t think we should go too deep into it – is we’ve sent the contract, we’ve had minor requests for changes which all seem a reasonable discussion.

“And hopefully it shouldn’t be too long to go before an official announcement.

“Still some work to go, but we’re close.”
