Fury will fight Deontay Wilder on October 9

That will now take place on October 9 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

And Fury is back in the gym as he attempts to get back into his training routine.

His promoter Frank Warren shared a clip of Fury lifting weights.

It was captioned: “The world’s best heavyweight @gypsyking101 in the gym this morning.”

Meanwhile Fury’s promoter Bob Arum has described the postponement of the Wilder trilogy fight as ‘a complete f*** up’.

Speaking to World Boxing News, the 89-year-old said: “I never knew that he hadn’t [got the second one] until he got sick.

“I really screamed at all of them. It was a complete f*** up. The people in the gym, I mean, we had no controls. It was like every sparring partner brought his friend, other corner people.

“[Trainer] SugarHill [Steward] had these Russians [he trains] running around. There was absolutely no precaution taken, which a lot of it was our fault.

“We should have been the adult in the room.”

Arum went on to add that he does not know if Fury has had his second vaccine shot yet.

But the legendary American promoter went on to praise Wilder and his team for how they protected themselves against Covid-19.

He added: “They did the right thing, and they’re to be commended, and we didn’t do the right thing.

“We were operating in the haze that the pandemic was over.”
