Tyson Fury ‘can’t wait to smash Deontay Wilder’s face in again’ as he puts in brutal workouts ahead of trilogy fight


TYSON FURY is training four times a day during lockdown getting ready to “smash Deontay Wilder’s face in again” when they meet for a third time.

The Gypsy King regained his heavyweight crown as he produced a stunning display to stop the Bronze Bomber in the seventh round to win the WBC Title in February.

Fury, 31, ballooned up to 28stone the last time he was champ as he battled mental health issues that kept him out of the ring for almost three years.

After eventually getting back in shape to overcome Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta in 2018 he then fought out a controversial draw with Wilder that December.

Following another two victories over Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin he got his rematch with Wilder three months ago on an epic night that sealed his triumphant return.

Now the British superstar is continuing his strict training regiment throughout lockdown otherwise he says he would slip into a state of depression and anxiety.

Speaking on his Instagram Live, he said: “I absolutely love these workouts in the morning. Kept me going right through it all.

“Without these [workouts] I’d be in some struggle I tell you that, I’d be so depressed and so down and so anxious.

“But with these workouts it keep me going, keeps me motivated, everyday.

“I’m training four times a day at the moment, four times a day, so it’s difficult.

“Circuits in the morning, followed by cardio, followed by weights, followed by cardio, absolutely smashing it.”

Despite talk of a unification clash with Anthony Joshua, Wilder has invoked his rematch clause.

And Fury says he cannot wait for boxing to return when it is safe to do so after the coronavirus pandemic to finish their rivalry once-and-for-all.

He added: “I can’t wait to get back and smash Deontay Wilder’s face in again.”
