It seems that, for once, Tyson Fury appears deadly serious about his potential comeback.

Although we haven't seen the Gypsy King in the ring since he became the unified heavyweight champion of the world after beating Wladimir Klitschko nearly two years ago, Fury promises he will be back.

Of course, the 29-year-old has said that before.

Earlier in 2017, Fury was training with WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders in Marbella with a view to a comeback, but his issues with UK Anti-Doping resulted in his boxing licence being revoked by the British Boxing Board of Control.

Fury is currently still suspended, but it is believed the BBBofC are hopeful of helping him box again in 2018.

Just last week, Fury revealed that he has already lost nine pounds of the seven stone he hopes to shed before stepping in the ring again.

However, he wants to fight Anthony Joshua for his IBF, IBO and WBA world titles and if a video of training is anything to go by, he's certainly still got it:

While there have been several question marks about Fury's physique, most people inside he boxing industry have never doubted 2 Fast's boxing ability.

Fury managed to get under the skin of Joshua on Twitter a few weeks ago causing Joshua to curse at the Furious One, a move that not many of the Watford-born fighter's fans have witnessed before.

Joshua has since explained it was something he simply had to do to make Fury take notice.

"Sometimes if a dog barks at you so many times, the other dog needs to bite back and make sure the other dog puts his tail between his legs. And that's what you have to do with Tyson Fury sometimes. And that's all it was, I just had to bite back.

"I'm not one of these dogs that stay in the garden barking for hours, I make my noise – and that's it – until we fight I don't need to be hollering and yelling for days and for months."
