Joshua's promotor Eddie Hearn has already confirmed that the contracts have been signed for Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury.
He also revealed that the blockbuster match-up is a two-fight contract and the location and date for the first bout will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Back in February, a video of Fury jumping into the sea at Morecambe Bay was posted online.
It sparked plenty of reaction online, including a comment from Hearn, who compared his body to the two-time world heavyweight champion.
'I said to AJ the other day, 'Did you see Fury jumping in the sea? He looked like me!'" Hearn told YouTube channel Seconds Out
"The response from AJ was, 'We're gonna get the best Tyson Fury, so I don't care if he's carrying a bit of extra weight now, I'm training for the best ever Tyson Fury." And, make no mistake, Fury will be in top shape for this fight.'"
Fury, however, has clearly been in training hard in recent weeks. In fact, barely a month has gone by and The Gypsy King arguably looks in the shape of his life.
Here is a picture of the 32-year-old on his official merchandise Instagram page. Thoughts?
Is he playing mind games with Joshua already? Earlier this month, Fury said he could drink 14 pints and still give Anthony Joshua a "hiding" inside the ring.
"I could drink 14 pints and still give AJ a hiding." he said on iFL TV. "I'm not training anymore. I only need six/seven weeks anyway for these bums.
"I don't need no big, great sparring partners for a bodybuilding type of guy, I just need the local binmen."
Thoughts on Fury's physique? Will he be able to beat Joshua?
Let us know in the comments.
