Tyson Fury says his latest story of getting beaten up by a light heavyweight was just mind games, and that he's in good shape leading into the Wladimir Klitschko rematch.

Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has come out to say that the story, his story, about getting dropped three times by his sparring partner was all just part of his mind games. Well, clearly it wasn't all mind games, as the abrasions on his face are certainly real. But now Fury says they were just caused by gloves grazing his face as he doesn't wear headgear.

In another post, Fury goes on to laugh that he could never be dropped by a light heavyweight and boasts that he's lost 10kg with two months left until his rematch with Wladmir Klitschko., scheduled for July 9th.
