But in response, he posted on Instagram: “I can’t remember ever looking in shape!

“They say he looks out of shape. I say I’ve never been in shape.”

Fury, who recently weighed 19st 11lbs before ousting Deontay Wilder in his trilogy, has often shed light on his frame.

He even posted shoulder to shoulder with Hawking heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua, 32, claiming that AJ has six abs and two defeats, he has ‘all belts’ and zero defeats.

Former opponents Wladimir Klitschko, 45, and Wilder, 33, were also mocked by the Gypsy King for losing despite their torn bodies.

Fury is now training again for his return, having been targeted by his promoters Frank Warren and Bob Arum in the UK on 26 March.

He is due to face mandatory challenger Dillian White, 33, with purse bids for the defense set for Friday.

But in a shocking twist, Arum revealed that talks are still underway for Fury to fight 34-year-old Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed title decider in the Middle East.

Usyk is due for a rematch with 32-year-old Anthony Joshua, who initially won the belt in September, leaving the situation up in the air.

Arum told talkSPORT, “It’s utter chaos.

“What is happening are only promises from the Middle East to have a unified fight with Usyk and Fury, and whether Dillian White is going to step aside.

“And people who have absolutely no contractual relationship – like Frank Warren’s Queensberry and our top rankers do – are getting involved.

“It’s a uniquely dire type of situation, but hopefully it will be sorted out and probably sorted out with a purge bid on Friday.”
