Tyson Fury has shown off his blistering hand speed and power as he continues to ramp up his training regime ahead of his proposed £100million heavyweight blockbuster with Anthony Joshua.

The WBC champion claimed earlier this week he would ‘move on’ if his potential clash with Joshua didn’t have a date and location confirmed by Tuesday, but is still training hard in the gym in a bid to get himself in prime fighting condition, with the fight slated for three months’ time.

Fury is out in Las Vegas with his close friend Billy Joe Saunders, who is currently being put through the toils of a training camp ahead of the biggest fight of his career when he takes on Canelo Alvarez in a super-middleweight unification showdown on May 8.

The self-styled Gypsy King has been uploading videos of himself looking sharp in training throughout this week and posted another one on Thursday morning as he hit the pads with legendary cutman Jorge Capetillo in Top Rank’s private gym.

Despite repeatedly hinting that he could walk away from his undisputed heavyweight showdown with Joshua, Fury isn’t cutting any corners in the gym and looked razor-sharp as he let go fast combinations and exhibited flowing head movement during a workout with Capetillo.

The undefeated heavyweight champion still looks a tad fleshy around the midriff but has this week started to lay the foundations for his training camp, which he’ll likely start once a date for his fight with AJ is finalised.

An agreement for Britain’s champions to meet for all five of the major heavyweight belts has been in place for weeks now, but Fury has been growing increasingly frustrated by the delay to confirm the fight.

Fury told the Behind the Gloves podcast: ‘If I don’t hear anything by Tuesday, I’m just going to move on because it’s been a long time in the making.

‘It was June last year when I did that video when I said I had agreed terms with Joshua. Like we both agreed to fight each other, but I’ve got to fight Wilder first. That was a year ago.’

A site and date still needs to be agreed, but Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn insisted the plan remains for the first of two fights to be held this July.

Fury revealed last week that there has been huge offers from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Uzbekistan, Russia, America and England to stage their Battle of Britain, and Joshua suggested the deal was close to being confirmed with an encouraging message on Monday. 

Joshua said: ‘Positive news this evening! I’m lacing up my running boots rn (right now)!!!

‘@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.’ 

Saudi Arabia are the front runners to land the world title fight while reports this week claimed it could be heading for July 24.
