Tyson Fury is looking in prime shape to battle Oleksandr Usyk on May 18.

Tyson Fury may never be the lean, cut, bodybuilder type, but the WBC heavyweight titleholder is looking in good shape ahead of his May 18 undisputed championship showdown with Oleksandr Usyk.

The two are set to headline a pay-per-view — available through both DAZN and ESPN+ — from Riyadh, rescheduled from a previous date, which fell through when Fury suffered a cut in training camp.

Some have questioned the conditioning of Fury (34-0-1, 24 KO), especially after he showed up in quarter-serious shape and struggled through 10 rounds with former UFC champion Francis Ngannou last October.
