It's been very difficult to gauge much about Tyson Fury from his comeback so far.

The former world heavyweight champion has won two fights against Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta; one was a total farce, while the other took him 10 rounds.

In less than a month's time, however, he will face his biggest challenge since overcoming Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

WBC champion Deontay Wilder awaits and aside from Anthony Joshua, Fury could not be going up against a bigger name in the division.

Among fans, the jury is out as to who will come out on top.

Prior to his two-year hiatus, the Brit was dominant, but he ballooned up to 25 stone having drunk 18 pints a night after losing his boxing license.

As for Wilder, he has won 39 of his 40 professional bouts by knockout - the other was on points, so he remains undefeated.

The general consensus is that the outcome may depend on Fury's physical condition and his weight loss of over 130lbs - the total body weight of Vasyl Lomachenko, for some perspective - has been hugely impressive.

Fury looks sharp 

Recent photos show the Gypsy King looking shredded and judging by BT Sport's footage of him training with a wrecking ball, it is paying dividends.

The 30-year-old looks incredibly fast and powerful - not bad for a man who openly described himself as "fat as a pig" not so long ago.

Anyone who believes he is just going to spoil against Wilder should think again, as it certainly looks as though he is ready to go on the front foot.

This will be the third fight of Fury's comeback

Granted, what happens in training isn't always a guaranteed indicator of what will happen on fight night.

Yet, Wilder's own footage from within camp is slightly more worrying. A recent video showed the Bronze Bomber failing to aim for the pads and generally looking uninspiring.

There are just over two weeks to go and if this video is anything to go by, Fury looks more than ready. 

Who wins this - Fury or Wilder? Have your say in the comments.
