Tyson Fury hasn’t let the festive period get in the way of his gruelling fitness regime as he prepares to return to the ring in 2022. Fury, 33, fought just once last year, albeit it in what proved a bout for the ages as he beat Deontay Wilder in their epic trilogy clash in Las Vegas.
His battle with Wilder came later than scheduled, with Fury initially negotiating a unification bout with Anthony Joshua when the American took legal action, and a subsequent ruling favoured his claim that ‘The Gypsy King’ was obliged to face him next.
Even then, the original September date was put back until October after Fury tested positive for Covid-19, although neither rival showed any sign of rust in their dramatic 11-round bout, which saw Fury finally stop ihs opponent by flooring him for the third time – having hit the canvas twice himself.
Who ‘The Gypsy King’ faces in his next defence of his WBC and Ring Magazine titles remains up in the air, with Dillian Whyte the initial favourite having been made the mandatory challenger by the WBC.
However, ‘The Body Snatcher’s’ extortionate fee demands have reportedly angered Fury’s camp, fuelling speculation he may instead face Any Ruiz jr.

Regardless, Fury is getting in shape via sessions with training partner Joseph Parker, with the pair not only hitting the gym but defying freezing early morning temperatures with intense road runs.
Parker, 29, has himself began 2022 riding a wave, following his unanimous points win over Dereck Chisora in December.
However, travel restrictions have prevented him from since travelling home to New Zealand, meaning he has remained in the UK over Christmas and New Year, teaming up with Fury in order to keep fit.
And the Kiwi has now posted an Instagram video of Fury delivering a message to his fans, and future opponents.

“Another run done this morning, me and Joe Parker, in the icy cold weather,” said Fury.
“Everything’s going well, I’m getting stronger and fitter and slimmer by the day. Big up!”
And Parker, who boasts 309,000 followers on the platform, told The Sun the Manchester man had the ability to push him harder than anyone else in training.
“Tyson’s a different beast altogether. I’ve trained alongside him and I know the levels. Out of everyone I’ve seen and trained with, he’s up here,” he said.
“He doesn’t muck around in camp. We don’t muck around in camp. But when we have fun, we have fun. And it’s the best fun.”
Should Fury prevail in his next bout, it should finally pave the way for a unification bout, either with Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.
Their rematch is set for the spring, with the British fighter aiming to win back the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO belts he lost in September.
