WBC World heavyweight ruler Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21KOs) stepped up his preparations for his proposed mouthwatering mega-fight with Anthony Joshua (24-1, 22KOs) by beginning gym work in America.
The 'Gypsy King' has linked up with legendary cutman Jorge Capetillo in Las Vegas as he ramps things up ahead of his summer showdown against British heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua.
Capetillo took to Instagram on Monday night to share two videos of Fury at Top Rank's private gym.
The first video showed him wrapping Fury's hands with the pair excited at their reunion.
They can be seen shouting pleasantries towards each other with Capetillo calling Fury 'el Rey Gitano' which translates from Spanish as 'The Gypsy King'.
In the second video, Fury is put through his paces inside the ring with some speed work. Capetillo was clearly impressed as he captioned this video as 'tremendous work'.
Despite starting to get himself in shape for the unification bout, Fury admits he will 'move on' from his fight with Joshua if he does not hear anything about a deal by Tuesday.
He has repeatedly vented his frustration about the delay in negotiations over the all-British unification bout that would bring all five of the heavyweight belts together.
Talks between Joshua and Fury's camps have been ongoing for months, with a final deal said to be 'imminent' - but the latter has now set a deadline for a resolution.
Fury told the Behind the Gloves podcast: 'If I don't hear anything by Tuesday, I'm just going to move on because it's been a long time in the making.
'It was June last year when I did that video when I said I had agreed terms with Joshua. Like we both agreed to fight each other, but I've got to fight Wilder first. That was a year ago.'
After Eddie Hearn had teased that Joshua was desperate for a fight date so he could start his training camp, the Watford-born boxer posted some 'positive news' via social media on Monday.
Joshua said: 'Positive news this evening! I'm lacing up my running boots rn (right now)!!!
'@258MGT and @Matchroomboxing have received the first OFFICIAL offer to host the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The WORLD! I will be victorious God willing! No place to hide now! I'M COMING.'
Reports on Monday claimed that the first of two Joshua-Fury fights would take place in Saudi Arabia on July 24.
