TYSON FURY reckons pushing a tractor and flipping tires are the driving force behind his preparations to beat Dereck Chisora this month.
The outspoken heavyweight star has been putting in the hard graft inside and outside the gym to ensure he is in top shape for their clash in Manchester on July 26.
And that includes pushing a three-ton tractor as part of his grueling training regime laid out by coach and uncle Peter Fury.
He said: “Pushing a tractor is a killer, if anybody thinks it's easy, come down here and have a try and you'll see.
“The tractor is over three tons, it takes every last ounce of strength in my body, but I'm pushing it back.
“With every push of the tractor wheel, all I'm thinking about is puncturing Chisora's face with every punch I throw.
“Another killer exercise is flipping the tractor tire, it's probably the best all round strength exercise there is.
“Flipping the tire, uses the back, chest, arm and leg muscles, while pulling the tire back uses the inner core strength involving the stomach muscles.
“The actual boxing is easy compared to this.
"It's hell, but this is where the real champions are made, train hard and brutal and the fights are easy, don't train like this and fights are murder. That's my motto.”
Fury, 25, beat 30-year-old Chisora in their first meeting back in 2011 at Wembley Arena.
But he has vowed it will be much easier this time.
He added: “When Chisora's in front of me and he's trying to bulldoze his way in, he'll be coming up against an immovable object, he'll be like a bug hitting a windscreen.”
