Tyson Fury's remarkable body transformation is complete.
The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' was 400lbs ahead of returning to the ring. He was suffering from depression and battling with mental demons amid speculation about his boxing career.
Though a year on from carrying excess weight, Fury is now in tip-top shape prior to fighting for the world heavyweight title.
He posted a picture of himself surrounded by his team, accompanied with the words: "The Fury express coming soon, next stop @STAPLESCenter LA, WBC WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD."

After becoming heavyweight world champion in 2015, Fury's professional and private life spiraled into despair.
He was stripped of his belt before relinquishing the others which led to a series of incidents, including contemplating suicide.
But Fury has conquered his toughest battle and is now setting his sights on a shot at a world title. He takes on WBC holder Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles, California, on December 1st.

The 30-year-old even believes helping people who endure the same problem as him is his calling.
"Other than boxing, I think this is my calling - trying to help other people with the same problems," he said.
Fury added: "Trying to get it across that you are not a weak person, you are not a let down, you are not a failure.
"People won't laugh at you. It is an illness. Just like cancer. Just like every other illness out there. This is a real, real problem.
"Mental health is one of the biggest issues we have now in the world. It's a silent killer. It's just a constant battle with yourself.
"The more it's talked about, the more it becomes open and will smash the stigma of mental health.
"If I can get through it and live a normal happy life I suppose everybody else can too."
Will Fury regain a world title? Not long to find out.
