Tyson Fury To Resume Training After Daughter’s Birth, COVID Recovery
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) has affirmed that he plans to get back to training right away after his newborn daughter Athena was discharged from the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool.
Her daughter seems to doing well after being in the intensive care unit. Not long ago, Fury was also unwell when he contracted the Covid-19, but he has now fully recovered and is poised to resume training camp.
The Brit was scheduled to share the ring for the third time with Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) on July 24. But the fight was moved to October 9 when multiple members of Fury’s camp, including the champion, tested positive for the virus.
In a video he posted on Twitter, Fury said: “I’ve just finished a little run this morning, getting it in. Still here at the hospital, hopefully, we’ll be leaving today, and I can start training camp for the big dosser [Wilder].”

While Fury has had to abandon daily training due to family matters, Wilder has been on the grind. Wilder is likely to be conditioned better than his British counterpart given that he has been training non-stop for the last several months.
Fury was recently named as the top seed in heavyweight rankings per Ring Magazine. Wilder sat in top five of the list.
