WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has taken extra precautions. with his training camp for the upcoming trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.

The fight was scheduled to take place on July 24th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

However, the fight was pushed back to October 9th when Fury tested positive for COVID-19.

When the postponement was revealed, Fury's co-promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, informed BoxingScene.com that his boxer was not fully vaccinated. Fury received the first shot of the vaccine, but never returned to get the second shot.

Fury believes that he contracted the virus from one of his sparring partners.

Both Fury and Wilder have been inactive since their February 2020 rematch.

To avoid any further delays to his ring return, Fury is cutting down the size of his team and he is also banning family members and close friends from having access to the training camp. 

"There were only ten of us on the team this time. But when we go back into camp for a month in England and another month here I will cut us to just four full time," Fury told Daily Mail.

"Me, my head trainer SugarHill Steward, his assistant Andy Lee and my old pal Tim who organizes my life. We will strictly control the access for sparring partners and increase testing. No masseur. No fitness coach. No dietician.

"Even my two brothers will have to wait to join me until fight week here in Vegas. I've suffered enough frustration on this roller-coaster. I don't need more, any more than I would have risked anyone else's health by coming early out of quarantine."
