Boxing news: Tyson Fury shows off stunning sharpness in new Instagram training video


The June 15 clash in Las Vegas will be Fury’s first since the split decision draw with Deontay Wilder at the end of last year.

Bouncing back from that controversial fight is integral in the 30-year-old’s hopes of getting another shot at the WBC title.

That belt is the last heavyweight title not held by Anthony Joshua, with the prospect of Fury or Wilder facing the Brit a tantalising prospect.

While Joshua’s next opponent remains subject to short notice negotiations, Tyson Fury’s focus is clear.

In training on Tuesday morning, the Manchester born fighter posted a video on Instagram to show off his incredible sharpness.

The drill involved a trainer taking aim at Fury with foam batons, which he ducked and dodged impeccably.

“Practice what you preach,” the boxer captioned the video.

“Repetition equals perfection.”

Both Fury and Schwarz are unbeaten going into the Nevada bout. It will be the German’s first outside of Europe and his first against a British opponent.

Fury has been forced to defend selecting Schwarz for his next fight, after a jibe by Joshua’s Matchroom promoter Barry Hearn.

“He’s getting incorrect information with Tom Schwarz because we both know he’s ranked number two in the WBO and in the top ten in the IBF,” he said on Instagram.

Veteran promoter Hearn had labelled the 24-year-old as “ranked no 93 on BoxRec”, adding: “congratulations, make of it what you want.”
