Tyson Fury trains in dark alone as he quotes Dark Knight villain Bane while preparing for Anthony Joshua fight

TYSON FURY took inspiration from Dark Knight Rises villain Bane as he trained in the dark alone.

Tom Hardy's 2012 Batman character famously told the DC hero that he was 'born' in the dark.


And the Gypsy King appeared to be motivated by Bane as he uploaded a video on Twitter working out in pitch black.

Fury, 32, said: "Training in the dark alone, because I was born in the dark.

"I train alone, because no one's going to help me when I'm in there fighting for my life."

Fury is gearing up for the fight of his life as talks progress between himself and long-time rival Anthony Joshua.

But it will not be the first time the pair have shared the ring.

When a 20-year-old AJ was a raw novice in 2010 less than two years into his amateur training, Fury visited his Finchley ABC gym for some sparring.

The Gypsy King had planned to take it easy on the unknown kid but Joshua heard any man capable of KOing Fury could earn themselves his Rolex.

So when AJ caught him with a stunning uppercut that was the very start of their rivalry.

Joshua, 31, recalled: “Before that spar, Fury said, ‘If anyone can beat me up or knock me out, they can have my Rolex watch’.

“All I wanted was his Rolex watch. I was hungry then and I am even hungrier now.

“It was a good spar and I didn’t really know too much back then, it was just passion.

“Now I have some boxing IQ and passion, I know it will be a great fight.

“There was a Rolex on offer then but now there is an even bigger pot of gold at the end of this rainbow and I want to take his head off his shoulders when that fight happens.

“He knows about my uppercut, he knew about it from back then. Trust me, he knows what’s coming, he knows.”
