Tyson Fury begins eight-week training camp for Deontay Wilder trilogy

The 'Gypsy King' is busy in the gym preparing for his heavyweight title defence against Deontay Wilder.

Tyson Fury's preparations for the Deontay Wilder trilogy fight have officially begun, with the 'Gypsy King' starting an eight-week training camp.

The pair will face each other in the ring for the third time on July 24, as Fury looks to defend the WBC strap he won from Wilder last year.

The Manchester-born fighter was close to completing the paperwork for an undisputed clash with fellow Briton Anthony Joshua in August.

But an arbitrator ruled in favour of Wilder and his contractual right to a third fight recently.

Speaking on social media, Fury said: "I'm in the gym, finished, camp started today guys. I've got eight weeks until I smash Deontay Wilder's face right in for him.

"I can't wait to do that on the 24th of July. Tune in."

The pair first fought in December 2018 at the Staples Center, LA. Fury outboxed the 'Bronze Bomber' for much of the bout but was dropped by a devastating combination in the 12th round.

He beat the count and the fight was determined a draw.

Their rematch saw Fury dominate proceedings, knocking Wilder down in the third and fifth rounds on his way to a brilliant TKO victory.

Wilder's corner threw in the towel in the seventh round with their fighter barely able to throw any counter punches.

Fury will therefore be the favourite next month, although Wilder's huge punching power remains a threat. 41 of his 42 wins have come via knockout.

Their third meeting will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. It's hoped the winner will then face WBA, IBF and WBO champion Joshua in a massive undisputed heavyweight bout.
