, Tyson Fury hints at September 1 Anthony Joshua fight with cryptic Instagram post and looks RAPID on pads in training

TYSON FURY shared footage in the gym looking rapid on the pads – as he appeared to post a cryptic message regarding his fight with Anthony Joshua.

The WBC champion is in Las Vegas as he prepares for what he hopes to be an undisputed title decider with AJ.

Fury, 32, and Joshua, 31, signed a two-fight deal in March, and promoters gave themselves a 28-day period to have a venue and date set in stone.

That deadline expired last weekend, but various site offers have been presented to both camps.

The plan has always been for a proposed July unification, but interested parties made it clear they will front more money by the end of the year.

And Fury’s UK promoter Frank Warren feared with AJ’s trainer Robert McCracken potentially in Tokyo for the Olympic Games during July, it could be delayed till September.

After those comments, the Gypsy King captioned his training video with a bible verse which references a possible September 1 date.

It read: “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not affrighted, neither be thou dismayed: for Jehovah thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Joshua 1:9 ASV.”

The name Joshua, accompanied with 1:9, had fans suggesting the super-fight could be heading towards September 1.

Equally, Fury is a passionate Christian and the verse including the name Joshua and date could be purely coincidental.

One said: “I saw the clue Joshua 1:9 ASV…..Joshua 1st September Allegiant Stadium Vegas !!!! Whos with me.”

“Another clue maybe? 1st September vs joshua.”

Despite speculation surrounding the social media post, Fury’s dad warned his son will move on to a new opponent if the fight is made any later than August.

He told Sky Sports: “If this goes on any longer, he will need tune-up fights.

“Inactivity plays a big part in boxing. You’ve got to have activity under those lights.

“As a father, I wouldn’t be doing my job right. I won’t let it happen if my son isn’t on it. And if I say something to Tyson, he will take it on board.

“If the fight happens in June, July or even August we will take it. But if it runs into next year then we need to fight.”
