With his second fight just around the corner, Tyson Fury flaunted a noticeably trimmer figure during an open training session in Belfast ahead of his heavyweight fight with Francesco Pianeta this weekend.

The 'Gypsy King' showed off his moves at the Castle Court Shopping Centre in Belfast on Wednesday afternoon and displayed his determination in the form of shed pounds.

Fury is set to face the Italian boxer at Windsor Park this weekend, as he continues his comeback by preparing for his second fight in a more athletic shape than the Fury we saw defeat Sefer Seferi earlier in the year.

One thing this does show is that the 30-year-old is, as he claims, determined to make his way back up to reclaim his place at the top of the heavyweight division, and the determination won't stop there!

If Fury does beat Pianeta as anticipated, he will with no doubt go straight back into training to prepare for a blockbuster fight with the undefeated Deontay Wilder in America as he has already confirmed that he will be attending this weekend's event in Belfast ready for when Fury wins.

But will Wilder's presence on Saturday be to much pressure for Fury to handle? Not according to the man himself who said following his public workout on Wednesday: "It's not really concerning me.

"What's concerning me is my legs looking very long and slender?

"I've been working on them for a very long time and they're still not very big, but they're quite long, so they'll be alright on the night. I'm looking forward to a great night.

"Losing to Pianeta would represent one of the all-time shocks in boxing history, but Fury is keeping 100 per cent focussed on the task at hand.

He said this week: "This is deadly serious business for me. I'm in a great mood but I'm aware of everything that's at stake this weekend. I cannot lose this fight.

"I will concentrate on making Italian sausage out of Francesco with my fiery meat balls, while I let Frank Warren look ahead to Wilder."

That Need For Speed

One thing is for sure, boxing fans simply couldn't get over the speed Fury showed during his public workout.

The peak Tyson Fury, the one that beat Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, was known for his fast movement and powerful punches, and it looks like he's a step closer to returning to that same Fury.

It looks as though Pianeta could be in for a long night.
