Fans of Tyson Fury have been left apprehensive over his pre-fight preparation before he takes on Deontay Wilder for a third and final time this weekend.
The self-proclaimed Gypsy King and the Bronze Bomber have met twice in recent years, drawing back in 2018 before the Brit dominated the rematch to claim the WBC Heavyweight Championship belt.
While the 33-year-old goes into the third bout as a huge favourite, questions over his weight have brought up some cryptic responses in the build-up.
With dad John Fury insisting that his son needed to pile on the pounds for the encounter, Tyson has told reporters that his weight is irrelevant, leaving some fans feeling worried.
One fan wrote on Twitter: "I’m worried for Tyson Fury, he is coming across as under-prepared and too laid back. Wilder has nothing to lose. This could go the way nobody expects it to go."
With a second adding: "Anyone worried about Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder? I want Tyson to win. But I'm concerned about his preparation."
A third added: "I think Wilder WILL be ready and fighting for his reputation this time. Hope Fury has his mind on the job."
While a fourth commented: "I’m a little worried a little Fury’s conditioning. I don't think it will save Wilder but there’s this nagging doubt in the back of my mind."

Fury had told Sky Sports on the matter: "It doesn't matter – weight, size, anything like that to beat anybody.
"You can weigh 14 stone and knock a man spark out, a 25 stone man. It doesn't really matter, the weight.
"Whatever I weigh in on the night, I weigh in at."
Fury was a career-heaviest 273lbs when he beat Wilder back in February of last year 17.5lbs heavier than their first meeting in which he was twice knocked down.
Fury later added: "Failure is not an option. I've just got to go in there and do what I do best. That's it. No more, no less.
"What's meant to be in life, will be and what's not meant to be, won't be. I'm going in there, I've done all my training, the rest is in God's hands. Fate will be fate.
"You can't escape it, no matter what we do in life.
"Everything happens in life for a reason and I've come this far, and I'm still continuing up this road, so we'll see where it takes me."
