TYSON FURY looks to be in the shape of his career ahead of his eagerly-anticipated showdown with Anthony Joshua.
The WBC king has been hard at work in the gym ahead of his undisputed heavyweight title fight with his fellow Brit.
And he looks almost completely unrecognisable after shedding the pounds in preparation for his career-defining bout.
Fury shared a photo of his trimmer physique to his recent Instagram story, in which he was modelling some of his Gypsy King clothing line.
And he looked a far cry from a man who claims to be necking 12 pints a day.
Earlier this month, the 32-year-old said: “I have stopped training at the moment, I am on holiday.
“I am drinking anything between eight, ten, 12 pints of lager a day, at the minute.
“But I am not eating so I am getting my calories through alcohol.
“I have trained and trained and trained with no progress so I am now a man of leisure.”

Fight fans couldn’t quite believe their eyes when the latest photo of Fury started doing the rounds on social media.
One tweeted: “He looks class the man means business.”
Another said: “Damn I never seen him this fit.”
And another said: “Wow, Tyson is looking good. His fist looks like a sledgehammer.”
One remarked: “Yes we know he has been lying about not being in training.
“He won’t be beaten. AJ might have to visit primary school again.”
Fury’s long-awaited showdown with Joshua is expected to take place in June or July.
The pair agreed terms on a two-fight deal last year but put pen to paper on their £500million contract earlier this month.
A venue and date for the Battle of Britain, however, have yet to be finalised.
And Fury’s dad, John, recently cast doubt over the biggest fight in the history of British boxing taking place this summer.
He told BT Sport: “We need to get him out, whether these cowboys get the job sorted which I don’t think they’re going to do.
“What have they signed? They’ve signed nothing in my eyes. They’ve got no date, no venue, no nothing.
“What does it mean if you can’t get a date and a venue?
“What does it mean if no one is willing to put the money up?
“It’s all about someone coming forward and saying, ‘Right, I’ll pay for the fight, I’ll stage the fight.’ Where are these people?
“That’s the position it’s in and I don’t think they can get it together.
“It’s too big for what’s happening and the climate the world is in at the moment.
“I just don’t think the timing is right for a fight of that magnitude with the state of the world.”
