Tyson Fury has taken to social media to show Anthony Joshua how he can beat Oleksandr Usyk.
The WBC champion recently announced his retirement from boxing once more, relinquishing the Ring Magazine belt.
Fury will be a keen observer on Saturday as Joshua looks to beat the Ukrainian in a rematch for the WBA Super, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles.
And the man whose old Ring belt will be at stake between the pair at the Jeddah Superdome in Saudi Arabia has offered his input into his fellow Brit’s bid to become a three-time unified ruler.
In an Instagram video this morning Fury said:
“Right, so here we are in the gym in Morecambe Bay. We’ve got the Irish green gloves on and I’m here with Andy Lee.”
Lee, the former WBO middleweight champion of the world, has long been part of Fury’s training team and, despite his retirement.
It is understood the 34-year-old could well announce yet another U-turn if ‘AJ’ is victorious in the desert, with the undisputed showdown for every belt in the sport’s premier division then seemingly just the signing of a contract away.
In the video Fury ripped body shots into Lee who was protected only by a body bag.
“This is how Anthony Joshua needs to attack Oleksandr Usyk’s body.”
Speaking to the camera after the assault, Lee said:
“Without this [body bag], I’d be dead.”
Fury, prior to announcing his retirement, seemed all geared towards a potential trilogy fight against old pal Derek Chisora.
The WBC then gave him until August 26 to confirm his retirement in writing before the sanctioning body’s president Mauricio Sulaiman considers the status of the title.
But Bob Arum, the Top Rank head honcho who looks after Fury’s Stateside affairs, has rubbished the idea of the lack of a return for the fighter, stating that the winner of the rematch between Usyk and Joshua will be well within his sights.
