ESNEWS posted the clip on YouTube, wherein Taylor can be seen landing consecutive punches on the heavyweight champion. It is safe to say that the man who withstood the punches of giants like Deontay Wilder found himself enjoying the session with Taylor.

In the video, Taylor is seen landing punches right and left, at Fury’s abdominal area. From a fan’s perspective, the punches seem unbearable and not easy for anyone to withstand. But, for Fury, it seemed like any other normal day. He was unbothered by the punches. And the duo shook hands and laughed after the session.
