Tyson Fury has shown off his impressive hand speed in a public workout in Los Angeles, ahead of his December 1 showdown with WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder. 

Wilder and Fury have been travelling the world in recent months, conducting an extensive promotional tour ahead of their heavyweight bout. 

Both fighters have been extremely vocal about their intention to emerge victorious come December 1, but many have questioned Fury's ability to challenge at the top level once again, after his near three-year exodus from the sport until June of this year. 

Since making his return, however, the Wythenshawe-born former world champion has made easy work of both Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta - beating the former in just four rounds in his comeback bout.

After finally securing a fight against the fearsome knock-out merchant Wilder, however - who boasts a 40-0 undefeated record, 39 of which came via knockout - Fury has been publicly sharing much of his recent workout plan.

In a video shared on BT Sport's official boxing Twitter account, Fury demonstrated his impressive foot and hand speed, stinging the pads of his trainers with a number of hard shots.

Many people also noted Fury's much slimmer demeanour, with 'The Furious One' having visibly shed several stone in the last few months, and looking close to some of the best shape of his professional career. 

Were Fury to triumph over Wilder and claim the only recognised heavyweight title he has never held - the WBC belt - many fans are hoping an even bigger fight with fellow British heavyweight Anthony Joshua would follow. 

Watch Fury training below.

You can see how fans have reacted to the footage below.

Joshua - who holds the remaining IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles in the division - has been extremely vocal about his intentions of unifying all heavyweight titles, and has a long-held and bitter rivalry with both Fury and Wilder.

Regardless of the outcome of the December showdown, however, Joshua has also stated his intention to face Wilder at some stage in his career. 

Were Fury to triumph, however, and claim the one remaining belt that has thus far eluded him, the temptation to finally have the shot to unite the division for the first time in 17 years might just prove too much.
