Weight Watcher: Slim Tyson Fury back in training after Christmas break

Tyson Fury looks a picture of health after heading back to training for a potential Deontay Wilder rematch.

Back to training at MTK Marbella, ‘The Gypsy King’ has seemingly refrained from over-indulging over the festive period.

Fury earned massive plaudits in 2018 after overcoming drink, drug and depression problems to almost regain the world heavyweight crown.

A final round knockdown left the 30 year-old a whisker away from becoming the new WBC champion on December 1.

With several awards to his name since then, Fury is strongly linked to a second fight opposite Wilder.

It’s the fight everybody wants and Fury is ready to build on his exceptional return in 2019.

Rebuffing advances from Anthony Joshua with a deal not to his liking, ruler Wilder is free to choose his next foe.

AJ won’t go over a certain threshold to secure the Wilder fight. The American can now further enhance his bargaining chips opposite Fury.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ is eyeing up Fury II in New York or Las Vegas in the spring. A UK venue is not said to be in the running to stage at the moment.

Brooklyn’s Barclays Center has been mentioned, although the Las Vegas T-Mobile Arena would be a no-brainer for a clash of this magnitude.

Should Fury be able to claim victory next time around, a trilogy event on home soil stays firmly in the offing.

In the race for WBN Fighter of the Year 2018, Fury is currently ahead of Oleksandr Usyk in the voting.

An announcement on the winner is set for January 18.
