Though they have not started training camps yet, some fans raised concerns over Fury’s physique in a video he recently posted to social media.
The ‘Gypsy King’ took off his shirt and jumped into the Morecambe Bay, but his shape even caught the attention of AJ’s promoter Hearn.
Hearn told Seconds Out: “I think before he goes into any main camp he doesn’t look like AJ, ever.
“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.
“We’ve still probably got maybe four/five months to go. He hasn’t even started camp yet.
“I think the impressive thing from both these guys is they haven’t stopped training.
“AJ, since his last fight, he don’t wanna stop training.
“I even said to him, ‘What about a little bit of warm weather? Go and relax a little bit? You don’t wanna over-train.’
“He said, ‘No, I’m fine at Finchley.’
“He’s sparring, he’s training, he’s preparing for the fight of his life.”
