It's been a long 18-month exile for former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The 28-year-old's career was put on hold following his own win over Wladimir Klitschko with drug problems and mental health issues forcing him to take some time out.

However, with the heavyweight division alive again, the Manchester-born fighter has decided to get himself in shape for his return to the ring later this year.

With that in mind he has travelled to Spain to train with friend and WBO Middleweight champions Billy Joe Saunders ahead of his clash with Georgian fighter Avtandil Khurtsidze in July.

Known as a prolific user of social media, Fury gave his fans an update on his condition in Marbella, insisting that the weight has been 'dripping off' him.

Posting a video to his Instagram page, he even claimed that he'd lost an impressive 18lbs as the Spanish heat helps him shed his excess weight.

Fury was called out by Anthony Joshua on Saturday night following his victory over Klitschko, with boxing fans everywhere tipping this as the potential fight of the century if Fury can get himself in fighting shape once again.

"The sun is shining, the weather is great," said Fury. "The weight is dripping off, melting off - I've lost 18 pounds already.

"I can definitely notice a difference, I'm feeling fitter, everything's going good. All is good.

"Going to keep you all updated on my progress and let you know the score."

Despite having his own undefeated record of 25 wins from 25 fights, there would be serious questions raised over his fitness and condition in comparison with Joshua.

AJ is in the condition of his life, and having proved that he can go the distance with a legend like Klitschko, he won't be too worried about what kind of challenge Fury would pose him.

Joshua is also catching up on Fury in terms of fights. One of the main criticisms of the 27-year-old is that he isn't as experienced as some of his would-be opponents, but this weekend's bout was the 19th of his professional career, putting him just six fights behind Fury.
