Tyson Fury has shown his blistering hand speed and strength as he continues to ramp up his workout regimen ahead of his proposed £ 100million heavyweight blockbuster with Anthony Joshua.

The WBC champion claimed earlier this week that he would ‘move on’ if his potential clash with Joshua didn’t confirm a date and location on Tuesday, but he’s still training hard at the gym to get himself in top shape, with the fight lasting three months.

Fury is out in Las Vegas with close friend Billy Joe Saunders, who is currently ravaged through training camp ahead of the biggest fight of his career when he faces Canelo Alvarez in a super-middleweight unification showdown on May 8. .

The self-proclaimed Gypsy King uploaded videos this week showing him looking sharp during practice, posting one on Thursday morning when he hit the pads with legendary cutman Jorge Capetillo at Top Rank’s private gym.

Despite repeatedly hinting that he could walk away from his undisputed heavyweight showdown with Joshua, Fury didn’t cut corners in the gym and looked razor-sharp as he unleashed quick combinations and showed fluid head movements during a workout with Capetillo.

The undefeated heavyweight champion still looks a little meaty around the midriff, but has started laying the groundwork for his training camp this week, which he will likely start once a date for his fight with AJ is completed.

An agreement for the British champions to meet all five of the major heavyweight belts has been in effect for weeks now, but Fury is becoming increasingly frustrated with the delay to confirm the fight.

Fury told the Behind the gloves podcast: ‘If I don’t hear anything on Tuesday, I’ll just continue, because it has been a long time in the making.

‘It was June last year when I made that video when I said I made arrangements with Joshua. As if we both agreed to fight each other, but I have to fight Wilder first. That was a year ago. ‘

A location and date have yet to be agreed, but Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn insisted that the plan be maintained for the first of two fights to be held in July.

Fury revealed last week that there have been massive offers from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Uzbekistan, Russia, America and England to stage their Battle of Britain, and Joshua suggested the deal was about to be confirmed with an encouraging message on Monday.

Joshua said, ‘Positive news tonight! I’m lacing up my running shoes (now) !!!

@ 258MGT and @Matchroomboxing have received the first OFFICIAL offer to host the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The WORLD! I will overcome if God wills! No place to hide now! I AM COMING.’

Saudi Arabia leads the world title fight, with reports this week claiming it could be headed for July 24.
