Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury have begun training for their blockbuster heavyweight title fight as the powers that be close in on a venue for the bout.
The pair agreed terms on a two-fight deal last month but a location for the showdown has yet to be finalised, leading to speculation the fight may not take place.
While negotiations continue to find a suitable venue, Joshua and Fury have been stepping up their preparations in different ways for when they do eventually meet.
Joshua began his prep by taking a trip down memory lane and returning to the Finchley Boxing Club where he first started out as an 18-year-old.
The heavyweight world champion often starts his camps at Finchley and posted a short video of himself in the ring with an amateur fighter.
Joshua, who is known for his humble nature, captioned the video: "Giving back may provide some financial resources.
"Going back provides an intangible, psychological stimulation for the children to want to do better. Your presence is infinitely more important than your profit".
Fury, on the other hand, began his own preparations across the pond, linking up with legendary cut man Jorge Capetillo in Las Vegas.
The pair enjoyed a private session on Monday night, with Capetillo posting a number of videos of their workout on Instagram before later calling the drills 'tremendous'.
They can be heard shouting encouragement towards each other with the cut man calling Fury 'el Rey Gitano' which translates from Spanish as 'the Gypsy King'.
Both fighters are taking things seriously ahead of their unification bout, but it's still far from certain whether the pair will ever meet in the ring.
Fury has admitted he will 'move on' if he does not hear anything about a deal soon, while his father John doesn't believe the fight will ever take place.
After Eddie Hearn had teased Joshua was desperate for a fight date, AJ did provide some indication on Monday that an agreement might not be too far away.
He wrote: "@258MGT and @Matchroomboxing have received the first OFFICIAL offer to host the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The WORLD! I will be victorious God willing! No place to hide now! I'M COMING."
