It was confirmed that her condition was stable and mother Paris Fury has thanked well-wishers as Athena’s health continues to improve.

Coronavirus guidelines meant he had to isolate before joining his wife, having previously been set to miss the occasion because of the original plans for his fight with Deontay Wilder.

That battle is now set for October 9, providing the Gypsy King a brief period of family time ahead of a return to training.

And the boxer updated fans on his newborn’s condition on Monday.

Fury said: “Hi guys, the baby’s doing fantastic, a lot, lot better.

“She’s off the ventilator she’s doing good. She’s really lovely.”

Fury also revealed he’s set up a GoFundMe page for donations to the Ronald McDonald House Liverpool to thank them for looking after Athena.

And the Brit offered any donators the chance to win two signed WBC belts.
