Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury's incredible body transformations since pair last fought ahead of £500m-plus clash

ANTHONY JOSHUA showed off his powerful and toned physique in a recent training clip – and Tyson Fury is sweating it out ahead of their undisputed clash.

The two Brits have signed a £500million two-fight deal to put their titles on the line this year.


AJ's promoter Eddie Hearn says the first fight will be 'in June or July' and is closing in on a date and venue for this.

In the meantime both boxers are keeping themselves in tip-top shape ahead of one of the most mouthwatering clashes of all time.

FURY FIGHTING FIT

Fury has not fought since he battered Deontay Wilder into a seventh-round stoppage to win the WBC heavyweight title.

That memorable night in February 2020 Fury weighed in at 19st 7lbs – the third heaviest of his career.



He insisted it was so he had the power to KO Wilder – and he wasn't wrong.

While the Gypsy King will aim to stick around that weight, he has continued to try and keep himself in shape, regularly sharing gut-busting runs and gym sessions on his social media accounts.

He claimed he was drinking 'between eight, ten, 12 pints of lager a day' earlier this month – but whether this is true is up for debate.

Fury is certainly a LONG way from the dark days when he ballooned up to 28st as he battled depression in the aftermath of his famous 2015 victory against Wladimir Klitschko.




BULKED AJ

Joshua is rarely seen out of shape – but he has sported different physiques in the last couple of years.

For the Andy Ruiz Jr rematch in December 2019, a slimmed down AJ got his revenge with a speedy in-out unanimous points win.

He was also trim in his last fight in November last year when he proved far too good for Bulgarian veteran Kubrat Pulev.

But in a recent social media snap, AJ looked back to being bulkier and more muscular as he prepares to face 6ft 9in, 19st Fury.


Sharing a photo of his toned physique with veins popping out, AJ captioned the snap: "My inspiration is my determination."

Fans and fellow pros were quick to laud the Watford-born fighter's physique in the comments section, including ex-footballer Jamie Redknapp.

The all-Brit clash is moving closer to being finalised, according to Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn.

Speaking to iFL TV, Hearn said: "A lot has been occurring, I’m actually on my world travels next week to try finalise a few deals around the world, to get things moving.

"[There has been] a lot of really positive conversations, I’ve had a good chat with Bob [Arum, Fury’s promoter], he’s working hard, we’re working hard, we are making a lot of progress.

"And now we are approachingh the period of ‘let’s try and close these site deals’ and that will be the number one priority for next week."
