“He likes to train, the pressure is off and he likes the gym life. He’s basically turned into a gym rat. It’s funny to watch, but he is.

“He is super fit and enjoying his time in the ring. Whether it’s permanent or not, it’s up to him. He says he’s retired, but you never know with Tyson.

“He trains really hard for a retired man in my book. But that’s up to him, we’ll see in the future.’

The 32-year-old has recovered from his latest defeat and is hoping to do the same this time around after being heavily criticized for not using his size to his advantage after the rematch for Saudi Arabia was confirmed on August 20.

A formal announcement of the $100 million plus deal for Joshua v Usyk II will be made early next week.

The Middle Austria is poised to invest even more extravagantly in the Gypsy King’s return from a brief retirement for a spectacle they consider to be ‘the next Rumble In The Jungle’.

Fury, as the holder of the WBC title, to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion is to be thrown between the World Cup semi-finals and the final in Qatar, likely on December 17, as tens of thousands of football fans in the Middle East .

A source close to the Saudi royal family says: ‘This is part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s ambitious Vision 2030 project to improve the quality of life of both residents and visitors to the Kingdom, leading to net zero emissions of carbon.

“The Crown Prince wants the world to recognize Saudi Arabia as much more than an oil country, of which sport and culture are an integral part.”

The mega-dollar deal was brokered for the Saudi government by longtime boxing fan Prince Khaled bin Abdulaziz through Skill Challenge Entertainment, which has secured worldwide rights to Joshua v Usyk.

For now, Watford-born star Joshua has made major changes to his squad with Rob McCracken, his trainer since the day he turned professional, and has moved on in a bid to regain his titles.

McCracken has been replaced by Angel Fernandez, who stepped in to take over the reins, and Robert Garcia has also joined the camp ahead of the repechage.

Fury added: “He’s a big strong guy and it was just a game plan that let him down last time and Usyk even though he got the decision knew he was in a fight. He was smashed to pieces was Usyk.

“So AJ just needs to tweak a few things and the size and power alone wins out. However, he needs to get his mind right as that is the key to unlocking everything. I believe he can.

“He has a funny demeanor. He beat Ruiz in Saudi on the return, so why not? If anyone is capable, it’s AJ.

“Hope he wins and who knows, a fight against him might tempt Tyson.”

All eyes are on the Joshua and Usyk rematch with the Fury family closely watched.
