Tyson Fury unleashes a flurry of punches as he returns to the gym just days after being escorted from a Morecambe bar and collapsing on the street

Tyson Fury has shutdown claims his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk could be in jeopardy by sharing a video of himself back in the gym training for their second undisputed title clash. 

Usyk beat Fury by split decision in Saudi Arabia on May 18 to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion of the world since Lennox Lewis. As a result, Fury decided to trigger their rematch clause. 

However, fans were concerned the rematch between Fury and Usyk would be cancelled after footage emerged of the Gypsy King being escorted out of a bar in Morecambe last week. 

Fury has dismissed claims he was spiraling out of control by sharing a video of himself back in the gym training for the rematch – which is due to take place on December 21 in Saudi Arabia. 

Fury posted a video of himself hitting the bag with the following caption: ‘On December 21st in Riyadh, in the heart of the kingdom, the king will reclaim his throne and become undisputed. 

The rematch with Usyk is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia on December 21 - seven months after the Ukrainian's split decision victory in their first fight

‘Usyk, I’m coming for you! Get ready for the Gypsy King! The path to redemption is all mine. I know what I have to do, I saw my shortcomings and best believe I am inevitable.’

During the video Fury was heard saying: ‘Hey guys, Tyson Fury here. I am back in the gym as you can see. I am counting down the days until I can get my redemption on Usyk. 

‘December the 21st, it’s going to be my time. I’ve done everything in boxing but I haven’t come back from a loss. But, I relish it. The chance to come back and redeem myself. December the 21st, it’s all me. Undisputed here we come.’ 

Fans were concerned Fury had spiraled out of control after footage emerged of him being escorted out of a local bar last week. 

Fury was being led out of the building by two security guards at Nowhere bar, with fans on social media dubbing them as ‘Britain’s bravest bouncers’.  

Once outside, the 35-year-old heavyweight boxer was filmed falling to his knees before headbutting the pavement.

According to the Sun, Fury had partied with friends and fans at the venue in his native Morecambe. He was reportedly asked to leave by security, who felt boxer to had become too intoxicated.

Fury was defended on social media by DJ Scott Shearing after the video surfaced on social media. He revealed how the star had been in Strawberry Gardens pub in Morecambe earlier in the day and insisted he was entitled to enjoy his time off.

‘I’m sure you’ve all seen the video of Tyson Fury being escorted out of Nowhere on FB. Lots of people with plenty to say,’ Shearing wrote.’The man is a bloody legend, multi millionaire and yet he is still just like you or me. 

‘He goes out shopping, just like you. Goes to the pub just like you, maybe gets drunk just like you too. I get he is a public figure but he is only human. 

‘I take my hat off to him as everywhere he goes people ask him for photos when he’s just out like everyone else to relax and unwind he always obliges. He was in the Strawbs Fri for a good few hours and they were all singing and keeping to themselves. 

‘Lots of people asked to have their picture taken with him. He took the time to do this in fact a young girl I know had her picture with him and he gave her £20. The man has a heart and feelings for god sake.

‘In boxing he is a legend regardless of his last fight however he is proud to live in Morecambe and always mentions us.

‘Money and fame can bring its own problems when the temptation for excess of anything is there and available, be it buying fancy cars, houses or going out drinking it must be hard to cope with mentally. Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t turn it down but your every move is in the spotlight.

‘He has his own demons with mental health and all that goes along with it but let’s show the man some respect for his achievements and love of Morecambe. We should have a statue on the prom celebrating him not putting him down at every opportunity!!!’.

Fury has previously been opened about his mental health struggles after he had dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November 2015, only to surrender his belts amid problems in his private life. 

During his spell away from the ring, Fury famously forked out £813 to buy 200 Jagerbombs for England fans in Nice after joining them for Euro 2016. He also ballooned up to 28st before shedding his excess weight, returning to the sport and becoming world champion once again.

It was reported in 2021 that Fury had given up booze for his own wellbeing and for the good of his family – causing concern among social media users when they saw the footage from last week. 

However, Fury has shutdown claims he was spiraling out of control and insisted he was back on track for the rematch with Usyk.
