Tyson Fury is training in close to 100-degree heat as he prepares for the concluding bout of his trilogy series against Deontay Wilder.

The English boxer will take on Wilder in six weeks’ time in his first fight since defeating the American nearly 18 months ago.

He had been preparing to face fellow Brit Anthony Joshua in a blockbuster match, but those hopes were put paid to when a judge ruled that Fury had to instead fight Wilder.

The 32-year-old has been out in America training since early April and is now deep into his training camp for the clash with Wilder.

It appears to have been a gruelling camp for Fury, with one of his training partners revealing he has been sparring for 15 rounds with no breaks in 97-degrees.

“I have just been in Miami with Tyson and he is in great shape for Wilder next month,” Dmitry Salita told MyBettingSites.co.uk.

“I went to the gym and he did 15 rounds straight with no break – he's training hard, in phenomenal condition and great spirits.

“From a purely boxing point of view he looks like he's ready to fight next week. He's in great shape; strength-wise, cardio-wise, skill-wise. timing-wise.

“He's never going to be Mr Olympia, but don't judge the book by the cover,” he said.

“The gym in Florida is like 97 degrees with humidity. After a couple of rounds the floor of the ring really heats up and then the ceiling heats up. It's close to being a sauna.

“Tyson has been training throughout the whole process to get better, learning new things. And he's so mentally strong that I don't see ring rust or being out of a ring as a problem.

“At that level it may even help him against Deontay. I don't see how being out of the ring has hurt him based on what I saw in the gym.”
