(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Tyson Fury may have been trying to pull the wool over Anthony Joshua’s eyes when he claimed he was drinking 12 pints a day a few weeks ago as he looks in tip-top shape already ahead of their £200milllion heavyweight blockbuster.
The self-styled Gypsy King said he was on holiday and not in the gym training earlier this month as he grew tired at the lack of progress in negotiations for his fight with British rival Joshua.
However, Fury and AJ have now both signed on the dotted line for the first of their two heavyweight world title fights, with just a date and location needed to be settled.
The fight is slated for the summer time with Fury’s promoters keen to avoid any further delays due to his already one-year hiatus from the ring.
Fury sparked some concerns that he might have ballooned up in weight before the biggest fight of his career when he claimed to be drinking up to 12 pints a day.
But that was either intended to bluff Joshua or Fury has completed a drastic transformation in a matter of weeks as he looks trimmed down and in supreme fighting condition in a picture posted by BT Sport’s Twitter account.
Fury will have the opportunity to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in the early 2000s when he takes on Joshua later this year.
