Tyson Fury reveals he ‘couldn’t be in a better place’ after 11 days of non-stop training and teased ‘big news is coming’.
Coming out of an 11th-round knockout in his epic trilogy bout with WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder.
Fury has returned before March and has already started flying after resuming training again.
He said on Twitter: “For 11 days now guys I run every morning and every night, training with weights and cardio.
“I feel absolutely fabulous, I couldn’t be in a better place if I tried. Just waiting for some big news to come out.”
Fury, 33, was ordered to defend his title against mandatory challenger White, 33, after defeating Wilder, 36.
But White Purse was embroiled in a legal dispute over the percentage of bids, which was disrupting talks.
It has since been revealed that Fury only needs to give his opponent a 20 percent split in his potential performance.

1 contender since 2017, pushing for a 40 percent split based on his interim-champion status.
But after comparing their fight purses, WBC president Mauricio Suleiman accepted the top rank’s request for an 80/20 split.
Suleiman told BoxingScene: “The idea for the 80/20 split comes from the wallets the fighters have earned in their recent fights.”
American promoter Bob Arum has revealed that if White does not accept the terms, either Andy Ruiz Jr., 32, or Robert Helenius, 38, are alternate opponents.
Ruiz is best remembered for defeating 32-year-old Anthony Joshua in June 2019, but lost a rematch six months later.
Hellenius is on a three-fight winning streak, his last two coming against 32-year-old Adam Konaki.
