“And that has really improved my right hand and putting my shoulder really into my shots.

Fury is boxing in the UK for the first time since 2018, after taking his career to scorching Sin City and the Las Vegas strip.

He set up camp in a separate house from the family home, just four miles down the road.

Fury stunned the world with his powers of recovery in the first and third fights with Deontay Wilder, climbing off the canvas a total of four times and getting compared to wrestling legend The Undertaker.

But the 6ft 9in switch-hitting power puncher reckons he has a twisted taste for getting battered.

He grinned: “I know most people look forward to after the fight, getting it over with and celebrating.

“But I enjoy every moment, even a 12-round fight goes too quickly. I’d rather go all day.

“Normal people will hear that and think I’m a lunatic but I really do love being in the ring and punched in the face.

“I love climbing off the canvas and stunning everyone.”
