The 30-0-1 boxer took to his Twitter to share a video of his training. In the video, we see Fury training in his underpants, something that has been a trademark of his over the years.

‘The Gypsy King’ captioned the video, “practice makes perfect, imagine @anthonyjoshua face getting smashed up with theses clean rights.” This comment showed the Englishman’s confidence in catching Joshua cleanly with a powerful right.

If this happens, it will be a very different victory for Fury when compared to his other fights. ‘The Gypsy King’ is famous for his slick movement that helps him out-box his opponents. Therefore, it will be a big statement if he could KO Joshua in three rounds.

Why does Tyson Fury train in his underpants?

The video showed that Fury is back in camp and is working hard towards delivering on his words. At one point, the two-time heavyweight champion claimed he had stopped training. Thus, fans will be happy to see him back and enjoying camp. However, what is the reason behind him training in his underpants?

The reason Fury does this is to raise awareness about testicular cancer. In 2018, Fury spoke to The Mirror and explained the same. He said, “Every penny spent on these pants goes to research to fight testicular cancer. A friend of mine went through it recently, and I want to spread awareness for him and this cause.”
