Tyson Fury buys Nando’s for entire restaurant days before comeback fight

A cheeky £700

Tyson Fury is in generous form this week.

After close to 900 days out of action, Fury is set to make his long-awaited return to the ring on Saturday night.

The undefeated heavyweight will welcome Albanian fighter Sefer Seferi to the Manchester Arena this weekend, hoping to get his career back on track and cement his legacy as one of the greatest heavyweights to emerge from these shores.

Fury is heavily favoured to extend his unbeaten record to 26-0 after dedicating himself to an incredible return to fitness which has seen him shed over seven stone.

Recently, however, the 29-year-old admitted that he’d hoped to put on weight ahead of fight night as he felt too thin at 17st 10lbs and he treated himself to a cheeky Nando’s a couple of evenings ago.

Fury, who remains a fan favourite, was in a giving mood and he decided to take care of the bills for everyone in the restaurant, according to iFL TV interviewer Kugan Cassius.

The total bill is believed to have exceeded £700 but that figure will be a drop in the ocean if, as expected, Fury keeps himself on track for a massive clash against Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder next year.

Fury looked markedly quicker than his comeback opponent when the pair took part in open workouts earlier this week.

“I picked him because he’s tough and strong, he’s got a lion’s heart and he will come to win,” Fury said of Seferi.

“I don’t feel nervous at all. I’ve been a goldfish trapped in a tank, and now I’m getting released back into the river. It’s been a rollercoaster of a few years and it’s just great to be back.”
