Former world champion Glenn McCrory is not concerned with Tyson Fury's level of activity, as the massive heavyweight has finalized a deal to challenge WBC heavyweight king Deontay Wilder in the fall.
The Showtime Pay-Per-View bout is likely going to fall on a November date in Las Vegas.
Fury pulled off a major upset in November 2015, when he traveled over to Germany and won a shocking twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko to capture the WBO, WBA, IBO, IBF world titles. It was Klitschko's first defeat in over a decade.
The win over Klitschko was Fury's last fight before he resumed his career in June of this year, with a TKO win in four rounds over Sefer Seferi.
And then Fury returned to the ring last weekend in Belfast, when he dominated Francesco Pianeta over ten rounds for a decision win.
"Tyson got what he wanted out of the Pianeta fight. He told me before the fight that he wanted 10 rounds and he wanted to box at a high pace and that's what he got. He proved to himself that he has the fitness for a championship bout and now he can have a short break and start preparing for Wilder," said McCrory told the Belfast Telegraph.
"Of course you can always say one more fight would be nice, it's like an actor saying he needs one more week to learn his role but that little bit of uncertainty, that little bit of extra pressure brings out the best in those who are the elite and that's what Tyson is."
Wilder and Fury first went face to face back in January of 2016 in Brooklyn, but their bout never happened in that year - after Fury began dealing with a severe depression.
McCrory is not ruling out yet another shocking win, when Fury steps in there with Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), who is regarded as one of the most dangerous punchers in the sport.
"He has been to the top of the tree, he knows what it takes to be a champion and it's just a case of getting himself in good shape. He was ready three years ago for the best in the world and he'll be ready to beat Wilder," McCrory said.
"I'm glad that he will have a short break and then face Wilder because there is momentum now with Tyson and when he goes into camp he'll be putting everything into every session because he has no time to waste. This is the kind of challenge that he needs and if he beats Wilder then it puts him right on course for the big one against Anthony Joshua next summer. That would be an amazing fight - it's what everyone wants to see."
