Tyson Fury is looking as lean as ever in training ahead of his undisputed heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua later this year.
The Gypsy King has agreed terms to face domestic rival Joshua in his next two bouts, with their first meeting expected to take place in Saudi Arabia this summer.
As negotiations over the site deal rumble on, Fury is currently training out in Las Vegas alongside good friend and WBO super-middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders, who is gearing up for a pivotal clash with Canelo Alvarez next weekend.
He has also linked up with another British world champion in Josh Taylor, who takes on Jose Ramirez for the undisputed super-lightweight crown next month.
And in a couple of fresh training pictures from Sin City it’s clear that Fury is already in superb shape ahead of his long-awaited battle with Joshua.
The WBC heavyweight champion first shows off his lean physique in a picture with head coach SugarHill Steward, before doing the same in a snap with Taylor.
Fury is still waiting on promoters Frank Warren and Bob Arum to wrap up a site deal with Joshua counterpart Eddie Hearn, who insists confirmation of the Battle of Britain is imminent.
However, this week Hearn was the subject of a furious verbal attack from Fury over his alleged lack of support for Saunders, whom he has promoted for the last 20 months, ahead of his clash with Canelo on May 8.
The heavyweight chief said in a shocking Instagram tirade: “I think Matchroom boxing and Eddie Hearn are absolute w*****s.

“They are up Canelo Alvarez's ring piece a million miles, look on the f***ing webpage. ‘Oh Canelo, Canelo’ – do you promote Billy Joe or not you w***ing p****.
“Frank Warren is worth 10 of you Eddie, you little sausage. He knows how to promote fighters, that's why he's a Hall of Fame promoter.”
Fury’s outburst was all the more surprising given he met up with Hearn earlier this month while on business in Vegas.
The Matchroom boss told Behind The Gloves: ”I saw Tyson yesterday. I just messaged him and said, 'I'm in Vegas, I'm in your hotel if you fancy a cuppa'.
“We just had five or 10 minutes together and it was good, because I don't represent Tyson Fury, so I don't know what is in his mind.”
