Watch Tyson Fury show off brutal power in training as dad John warns Anthony Joshua his ‘superman’ son ‘doesn’t tire’

JOHN FURY has used his new Instagram account to fire a warning at his son’s heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua.

The 56-year-old was filming one of Tyson’s intense sparring sessions – while marvelling at the Gypsy King’s unfaltering engine.

He said, as Tyson continued his workout: “AJ my friend, the world wants to see this fight.

“The world wants to see it, and the world is gonna get it.

“There gonna get the biggest fight in history. This man [Tyson] is a fighting machine.

“AJ, you’re good. You’re very good.

“This man is brilliant. This guy is a super-great in the making – he just don’t get tired.

“He don’t get tired. This man could fight all day. At a fast pace, and a powerful pace.

This man is a superman.

“I don’t know… I’ve never seen anything like it.”

As the session continued, John went on: “Look here. Look here. This after an hour’s training.

“This man is a superman. Go on son.”

Tyson Fury is set to fight Joshua next year after the pair agreed a two-fight contract earlier this summer.

But there are still obstacles in the way for both.

Joshua must first get past IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev, with the pair set to fight in December – potentially behind closed doors at the O2 Arena.

Fury, meanwhile, has a pair of challenges to overcome.

Still in the way is Deontay Wilder, who is due a third fight after triggering a clause in the contract of their second bout.

The pair could do battle in December as well, although Bob Arum has spoken of delaying this further to February if they cannot get a crowd into the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This puts them on a collision course, however, with the WBC having ordered Fury to face mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte by the end of February next year.

These factors would suggest that, should they both overcome all hurdles, Joshua and Fury won’t be able to meet until the summer of 2021.
