TOMMY FURY started his ‘first day of camp’ as he eyes a fight on his brother Tyson’s undercard.
The 2019 Love Island star last boxed in August, beating Jake Paul’s sparring partner Anthony Taylor, 32, on his US debut.
He then signed to fight YouTube star Paul, 25, but had to pull out of the grudge match after suffering a broken rib and having a chest infection.
But Fury, 22, wants to return the night brother Tyson, 33, fights Dillian Whyte, also 33, on April 23 at Wembley Stadium.
And he appears to be training for a fight as he posted a series of training and diet pictures online, captioning: “First day of camp.”
Paul has recently accused his Fury of faking the injury to avoid risking his reputation in the all-celebrity bout.
So he hit back to deny the claim and insisted he will push ahead with his boxing career – with or without fighting the American.
Fury told EsNEWS: “I think it’s ludicrous, I think he’s using my injury as a play point like, ‘He didn’t want the fight’. When really, it was a genuine injury.

“I broke a rib and had a major, major chest infection and I just wan’t fit to fight, professionals cleared me as not fit to fight.
“He’s just playing on that, but at the end of the day he knows where the big fight’s at – it’s here.
“He knows where the hundreds of thousands of people are at – it’s here.
“So if he wants to go and fight another MMA kid in Ohio somewhere, let him crack on. But I know we’re onto bigger and better things.”
Fury would have been Paul’s first opponent with a professional boxing record.
The 5-0 internet personality has so far only beaten a YouTuber, NBA player and two former UFC fighters.
Fury still hopes to face Paul and believes a statement win on Tyson’s undercard could set it up.
I’m a boxer, I’m not a YouTube boxer or anything like that, I’m a fully-fledged fighting man.
He said: “That fight I look to see at the end of the year.
“My plan is to get a good win on this undercard. At the end of the day, Jake Paul knows where it’s at.
“We’re onto bigger and better things, I don’t know what Jake Paul’s doing, but we’ve just done 100,000 at Wembley.
“I’m looking to get a good win on the undercard and move on with my career.
“I’m a boxer, I’m not a YouTube boxer or anything like that, I’m a fully-fledged fighting man.
“Whatever Jake Paul decides to do, he decides to do, I’m not interested.”
