Fury has been travelling through the United States with his younger brother, undefeated boxer and former Love Island contestant Tommy Fury.
While ‘The Gypsy King’ is enjoying the sunny beaches of Miami, Anthony Joshua is sweating it out at Finchley Amateur Boxing Club. The gym is the very first one that Joshua trained at.
