Anthony Joshua has rejected reports of Tyson Fury being out of shape ahead of their heavyweight unification bout. Talks are growing over the fight that will take place. The fight expected to take place this summer.

Fury has been enjoying his time away from the ring, sharing footage of himself spending time with his family at Morecambe beach last week. Some replies to the video suggested Fury is carrying some extra weight.

“I think before he goes into any main camp he doesn’t look like AJ, ever,” Hearn said in an interview with Seconds Out. “I said to AJ the other day, ‘did you see Fury jumping in the sea? He looked like me! The response from AJ was, We’re gonna get the best Tyson Fury, so I don’t care if he’s carrying a bit of extra weight now, I’m training for the best ever Tyson Fury. And, make no mistake, Fury will be in top shape for this fight.”
