Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday and Fury wants to be the next man in line
Fury has not fought since November 2015, but says he wants to return to boxing soon
Fury is in the ring with his trainer Ben Davison, and captioned the Instagram post: ‘Working hard today on the pads’.
The self-styled ‘Gypsy King’ of boxing was also on social media earlier on Monday with a much more typical post, as he spends time in Marbella with fellow bozer Billy Joe Saunders.
He posted a video of him and Saunders preparing for a run on the beach – while dancing to music and larking around, it shows Fury is still taking fitness seriously as he aims for a return following 18 months of physical and mental health problems which saw him forced to give up his world title belts and boxing licence.

Fury’s last fight saw him beat Klitschko and he has been vocal after Joshua’s own victory
Fury’s last fight saw him beat Wladimir Klitschko, and he has been vocal following Joshua’s own win over the Ukranian on Saturday night at Wembley.
Fury wants to be Joshua’s next opponent, and has even claimed he could beat the three-belt heavyweight champion of the world with one hand tied behind his back.
The former champion told Sky Sports: ‘Styles do make fights but I am sure I can beat AJ with one arm tied behind my back.
‘I don’t even need a warm-up if he wants this, I have been out of the ring as long as Klitschko but the difference is, I am not 41, I am 28. AJ did really well to come back but I am not 41 or getting old. He is just a pumped-up weightlifter but Klitschko couldn’t land one of those of those hooks on me, at all.
