The world of Tyson Fury has certainly improved in recent weeks.

The former world heavyweight champion is on the road back to full fitness and recently learned that he has served a two-year ban for Anti-Doping violations.

The Gypsy King now has the all-clear to regain his licence and return to the ring in search of winning back his prestigious throne.

Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tony Bellew are all in the 29-year-old's crosshairs, although, it may be a little while before he is back to his old self.

Ever since he announced he would be returning to the game, Fury has kept his hordes of fans consistently updated with how his fitness training is going.

He's actually looked pretty impressive, but one new training video has surfaced which certainly doesn't fall into that category, more the hilarious one.

For iFL TV, Fury took part in a sparring contest with former featherweight champion Kid Galahad, a man who is likely a third of his size and weight.

Just watch below and have a right giggle at a real-life David v Goliath.


Thankfully, Fury didn't actually give it his all, otherwise, he probably would have done some serious damage, even if he isn't famed for being a huge puncher.

The whole process was clearly a way of improving the Gypsy King's speed and reflexes in the ring.

It is exactly these two things that Fury has called out Joshua for in a recent interview, slamming the champ for simply being a 'brawler'.

“He’s still the same man he was when I last boxed two years ago,” Fury said. “He’s still the same, just a bit heavier and with a few more muscles on him. That’s it really.

“The man can’t box, he’s not a boxer, he’s a brawler. When he gets in there with someone who can box and move, he will get beaten, it’s as simple as that.

“When I say these things, I don’t say it because I don’t like somebody, I say it because I know the truth. The truth of the matter is, he will get his head punched in by anyone who can box and move a bit.

“He can never change that because you can never make a carthorse into a racehorse. He’s not built for movement and speed, he’s built for power.

“You can’t make a power man a speed man and without speed and movement in heavyweight boxing you’re a limited fighter.”
