Tyson Fury has revelled in his position as the new heavyweight champion of the world since November 2011.

He has partied, eaten what he wants and generally lived a civilian lifestyle and consumed all the benefits thrown his way since becoming the king of the heavyweight division.

But now it is time to get back to his day job as a professional athlete and the holder of the richest prize in sport.

Today Fury  (25-0, 18KOs) began training camp as he prepares to defend his title against former champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4-53KOs) the man he took them from last year.

Fury says he has to lose over three stone for the fight, schedule for July 9th, in his home town of Manchester.

“First day is going to be very hectic, it’s gona be hard, the first week I anticipate will be mega hard, I’m expecting a very hard camp to be ready for July 9th.” said Fury. Who posted a video and various tweets about losing weight and encouraged any of his followers to join him in shedding the pounds.

Klitschko, it is believed has been in training for the rematch for several weeks already, and is quietly determined to take his world titles back from Fury so the Mancunian will need to be in better shape both mentally and physically if he is to inflict a second defeat on the Ukranian and retain his belts.
