TYSON FURY’S training has been leaving onlookers stunned with 15-round sessions in Florida’s ‘sauna’ heat.
The unbeaten WBC champion has been in America since April as he initially planned to fight Anthony Joshua.

But he is instead faced with a trilogy bout against Deontay Wilder, proposed for July 24 in Las Vegas.
Dmitriy Salita, a retired fighter-turned promoter, has witnessed Fury’s relentless regime and revealed the Brit is in ‘phenomenal condition’.
Salita, speaking via the MyBettingSites.co.uk blog, said: “I have just been in Miami with Tyson and he is in great shape for Wilder next month.
“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.
“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.”

Fury, 32, dethroned Wilder, 35, of the title in February 2020 but the heavyweight rivals were already signed to an immediate rematch.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, it was delayed and ultimately cancelled as Fury’s side argued the stipulation expired.
They instead turned to talks with Anthony Joshua, 31, all meanwhile Wilder took his case to civil court.
And an arbitrator later ruled in his favour, forcing a third fight with Fury, the man he initially drew with in 2018.
The Gypsy King has officially started camp under coach Sugarhill Steward, who led him to victory last year.
And Salita, also once trained by Steward – nephew to the legendary Emmanuel – believes the pair are unbeatable together.

He said: “Sugar used to train me so I know how good Sugar is, he’s particularly good for certain types of guys like Tyson.
“Having Sugarhill in his corner is a massive positive for him because they share the same mindset and same style of boxing.
“With Sugar Hill as his trainer, Tyson Fury is unstoppable. And he’s still learning and keeps getting better.
“Seeing him, speaking to him, seeing how he trains – he’s truly a man on a mission that believes he is one of the greatest fighters of all time, a man that believes this is his era.”
