We are only a month removed since Tyson Fury said he was not training and on a 10+ pint per day diet. During an interview with IFL TV he said the fight with Anthony Joshua was no near to happening any time soon and that he had ceased training. Similarly, he said he was indulging in a 10+ pint per day diet most afternoons.
Many thought this to be tongue-in-cheek knowing those days are gone for the former unified heavyweight champion of the world and current WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight king. Since then we have learnt that Tyson and AJ have at least agreed terms with only a date and a venue currently in the way of one of the biggest fights in boxing history. Perhaps another sticking point will be the realistic opportunity to have fans attend the showdown, something both fighters will want.
Since the comment, Tyson has been taking a bit of a social media blackout with little-seen of him other than the odd merchandise plug. Based on a post made recently, it is obvious that not only was the comment tongue-in-cheek but Tyson Fury has been head down and in the gym diligently preparing for one of the biggest fights of his career for the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship of the world. Take a look…
Lean and ready – Tyson Fury
