World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has given his fans a look into what it’s like to train as a world champion after dropping a video on his Twitter.
The WBC Champ is put through his paces in his gym in Morecambe, kicking off a fight camp that looks set to culminate in a December 3 bout with an as-yet unannounced opponent. ‘The Gypsy King’ barely breaks a sweat as he warms up and hits the weights, showing all the stamina that he’s now famous for.

Though not confirmed, Fury’s next opponent is heavily rumoured to be a trilogy fight with Derek Chisora at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff after fights with both Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua fell through in recent months.
Fury also had a bit of back-and-forth with Mahmoud Charr over social media after the Joshua fight fell through for the second time, however that potential matchup wasn’t received very well seeing as Charr isn’t ranked in the WBC’s top 15 heavyweights. Despite Charr’s best efforts, it seems to be dead in the water.
Fury has two convincing wins over Chisora, having won the first contest via decision in 2011, taking the British and Commonwealth titles. Fury dominated their 2014 rematch, forcing Chisora’s corner to retire him at the end of the tenth round.
Both men have spoken about the potential of a trilogy fight happening for years now, and with Fury desperate to get out before the end of the year and Chisora coming off a win over Kubrat Pulev in July, it seems we might be about to get the matchup. An official announcement of ‘The Gypsy King’s next fight is expected in the coming days.
