With just over a month to go until Tyson Fury’s highly-anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder, the ‘Gypsy King’ has provided an update on his training routine and sparring partners.
Unbeaten lineal heavyweight champion Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) faces Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) for the WBC heavyweight championship at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on February 22, live on ESPN+ PPV and Fox Sports PPV.
Fury is deep into preparations in his training base in Las Vagas, and while it may look like fun and games on social media, the ‘Gypsy King’ knows that is strictly business.
Fury said: “On Instagram it may seem like I’m living the dream in Las Vegas, with blue skies and palm trees, but in reality I’m in a gruelling training camp and it’s repetitive every day.
“Instagram would make you believe it’s a whale of a time and I’m enjoying myself and everything is fantastic, but in reality I’m being worked to the bone every single day.
“I’m being smashed session after session and I’m in the recovery pool because my joints are smashed and I need the recovery.
“Whatever you see on Instagram in other people’s lives that you’re trying to gain influence from, remember the grass is not always greener on the other side. Anything good in life comes from hard work.”
Dale Youth prodigy, Adeleye, 22, trained by Gary McGuiness, was only in action a few days before Christmas as he blasted through Lithuanian Dmitrij Kalinovskij (13-62-4) in just 145 seconds on the undercard of Dubois-Fujimoto.
George 'The Future' Fox, son of respected trainer Don Charles, has racked up three points wins since his pro debut in June 2018.
Heavyweight prospect Jared "The Real Big Baby" Anderson is unbeaten in two contests and knocked out his last opponent Stephen Kirnon (2-3-1) within 1:30 of the opening round on the undercard of Carl Frampton's win over Tyler McCreary on November 30.
The chosen trio have the arduous task of trying to catch the most agile and fluid heavyweight in recent history as they provide him with the rounds he needs before the eagerly anticipated rematch with Wilder.
