Tyson Fury is already back hard at work ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder.
The WBC gave Deontay Wilder the all-clear to fight Fury again on Friday, making a second bout between the two all the more likely.
Fury shed 10 stone in order to get himself in shape for last Saturday’s title fight and the Gypsy King wasted no time in preparing for the next instalment against the American, getting himself back in the gym on Saturday morning.
Posting a video of himself running on a treadmill, the 30-year-old said: “He’s back on the road again.”
“Got to get this weight down, get ready for the big fight again and rock this joint. Hold tight.”
Fury and Wilder fought out a controversial draw in Los Angeles last weekend, with the majority of the boxing world feeling that Fury was robbed of a famous win.
However, Wilder believes that given the chance again, he will have the advantage against the Brit.
“Fury was everything I expected him to be. It’s not what Fury did, it’s what I didn’t do,” Wilder said on Thursday. “You seen the best of Fury, you didn’t see the best of me.
“I wanted to end the show with a devastating knockout and I got too excited.”
Fury hopes the rematch will be hosted back in his home country, having travelled to the States for the first bout.
“I said to Frank Warren, he said ‘Arsenal’ but I said, ‘No, let’s have it at Old Trafford!’ Hopefully, we can have it here in the summer,” he said while watching United’s draw with Arsenal on Wednesday.
