Tyson Fury claims he is as "solid as a rock" after showing off his incredible bulked-up physique ahead of the Deontay Wilder rematch.
The 31-year-old Brit superstar clashed with Wilder in 2018 as part of his sensational return to boxing after his three-year hiatus.
But Fury has now teased fans on Instagram with his commitment to dethrone the WBC champion and bury the memories of his controversial draw two years ago.
The 'Gypsy King' shared a picture of himself and sent out a message to his 2.5m followers: "'Solid as a rock' 19 stone, 270lbs coming for @bronzebomber."
Fury's latest Instagram post suggests that he is putting on the extra weight to keep to his promise of knocking Wilder out.
The former unified champ weighed in at 254.4lbs for his last outing against Swedish boxer Otto Wallin last September.
Fury is adamant that he will knock his fierce rival out, even admitting that he plans to soak his hands in petrol to tighten his knuckles ahead of their forthcoming rematch.
"I was speaking to an old legendary bare-knuckle fighter from the travelling community, he's called 'Big' Joe Joyce," he told Gareth A Davies.
"He told me about dipping his hands in petrol, to toughen them up.
"So for this fight I'll be dipping my hands in petrol for five minutes a day during the last three or four weeks of the training camp to really toughen them up.
"It worked for him, so I'm going to give it a try."
Wilder, 34, has vowed that he would retire from boxing should Fury manage to knock him out in the first two rounds of the fight.
But the 'Bronze Bomber' slammed Fury's punching power and argued that he has "pillows as fists."
The WBC kingpin explained: "We haven't seen his power displayed like he's been talking about. It hasn't been continuous, like mine.
"I think he has pillows as fists. That's what I felt in our last fight.
"With the strategies that he's talking about, I don't really know how to take it.
"I don't know if he's trying to throw me off my game by saying he's going to knock me out."
Fury and Wilder will trade blows on 22nd February for the WBC championship in Las Vegas.
