Tyson Fury is not known for being conventional and he certainly has an alternative way of going into the weekend compared to most people.
But is it the kind of approach that also makes Gypsy King a boxing champion, after defeating Deontay Wilder for the second time to retain the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles.

Laying on his back, he relentlessly allows his father John to slam a medicine ball down his torso.

The clip becomes even more bizarre when the background music inside the gym offers the soothing tones of Kings of Leon’s hit song ‘Use Somebody’ from 2008.
Wilder uploaded his clip to Instagram and subtitled it by saying: ‘When you hit the Friday feeling and someone was trying to dampen it. @gypsyjohnfury #spartans #ubeeated #champ. ‘

Following his trilogy victory over Wilder, Britain’s next match could come up against compatriot Dillian Whyte.
However, Fury has been blown up by promoter Eddie Hearn for his financial claims ahead of a potential title defense.

Hearn and Whyte were confident that the WBC would confirm Body Snatcher as Fury’s mandatory opponent on Tuesday night at the annual meeting of the presidents of the IBF, WBA and WBO.

When asked if the purse strings would prevent the fight between Fury and Whyte from taking place, Hearn told iFL TV: ‘Possibly. It is almost secondary to the match being ordered.

‘The interim champion can receive up to 45 per cent of a wallet and I think it has to be against that kind of levels.
‘I saw Top Rank talk about 20 per cent [at the WBC convention]. It’s outrageous, but it’s something to be left to them.
‘The problem is time. We have to move on, and it’s getting closer, and I’m convinced it will be a fair decision for Dillian Whyte. ‘
