TYSON FURY displayed his impressive fitness at the gym as he continues to ramp up his training for the rematch against Oleksandr Usyk.

The 35-year-old Gypsy King experienced a split-decision loss to the Ukrainian in Saudi Arabia last month.

Two weeks ago, Fury was seen being escorted out of a pub before collapsing on the floor outside.

However, just days later, he resumed training and began focusing on the announced date for his rematch with Usyk - December 21.

He continues his training in Lancaster, as a photo surfaced on Instagram on Tuesday showing him at the Salt Ayre Leisure Centre gym.

Strength and conditioning coach Kristian Blacklock posted the photo on social media, capturing Fury grimacing while lifting weights.

The caption alongside the image read, "Back to work with @tysonfury 💪."

Fury will enter the Usyk rematch as the underdog, having been outboxed for much of their initial bout.

He was also staggered, hurt, and counted by the referee in the ninth round after the ropes saved him from a series of punches from the former undisputed cruiserweight champion.

Despite this, Fury recently asserted that his main issue in the fight was that it was "too easy."

 

Fury, who was leading the fight after six rounds on many fans' scorecards before Usyk made a strong comeback in the later rounds, told Furocity, "I felt like I dominated him for most of the rounds.

"He landed a solid punch in the eighth round that busted my nose. He had a 10-8 round in the ninth, and I gave him the tenth round as well.

Other than that, I didn't give him any other rounds; I only gave him rounds eight, nine, and ten.

"But since the ninth round is scored as two, I gave him four rounds in total. The fight turned out to be much easier than I anticipated, a lot easier.

"People said he would be hard to hit, but I was landing three- and four-punch combinations on him and laughing.

"My issue in that fight was that it was probably too easy.

"At times, it felt like I was in the ring with a local amateur boxer. I was enjoying it too much and fooling around."
