TYSON FURY'S trainer SugarHill Steward is ready to go 'old school' in the Gypsy King's preparations to take on Anthony Joshua… by lining up 10 warm-up fights within days.
The WBC champ's hugely-anticipated scrap with Brit rival AJ was finally confirmed earlier this week.
The pair have signed contracts for a £200million, two-fight showdown this year to determine who will be undisputed heavyweight champ.
A date and venue has yet to be agreed although it is expected to take place in June potentially in the Middle East.
Fury, 32, hasn't fought since his stunning victory over Deontay Wilder in February 2020.
But SugarHill has a plan to emphatically dust of the cobwebs to get Fury in prime condition.
Speaking via the MyBettingSites.co.uk blog, he said: "Remember the movie Diggstown with Louis Gossett Jr, he had to fight ten guys within days or something?
"Let’s get Tyson to do that. Let’s put him in there for a fight a month.
"If he’s ready let's give him a fight a month against the top ten guys and take on each contender.
"Old school boxing like Ray Robinson, they fought, then they fought three weeks later.
"Why not fight if you stay ready? What a challenge and what statement that would be. A lot of fighters want to fight once or twice a year, but if you’re ready why not fight?
"I told Tyson that and he just smiled. I don’t think he’d mind it. He just smiled and laughed, one of those Tyson Fury laughs. Tyson’s a throwback fighter, he likes all that old school stuff."
Joshua's last fight came in December when he KO'd Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev.
But Tyson insists even the ring rust does not make up for the skill disparity between himself and AJ.
Fury told ESPN: "He only fought in December, so December – June is only six months out the ring.
"So, he'll be a full year ahead of me in activity. But, I'm that much in front of him with skill, a year of inactivity doesn't really do that much.
"But you can never beat being match-fit and being active and being out regular, any fighter will tell you the same.
"If you're out regular and you're match-fit, then you should be able to beat people that are inactive, that's for sure.
"But I don't make excuses, I had three-years out the ring, came back and beat Deontay Wilder's ass.
"So, I'm sure I can beat Anthony Joshua with one arm tied behind my back, even after being out the ring for 16 months."
