Fury, 35, will have the chance to write his name into the history books by becoming the first undisputed ruler of the division in nearly 25 years.

And he seemingly plans to win all the belts by fighting as a SOUTHPAW.

The WBC heavyweight king stunned fight fans around the world during Wednesday night’s open workouts by ditching his orthodox stance as he drilled pads with coach Sugarhill Steward.

And the switch didn’t go unnoticed, with one boxing fan saying: “Tyson Fury is in southpaw.”

Another chimed in: “Tyson Fury is actually a natural southpaw.

“But he was forced to fight orthodox at a very young age in all his fights, so he became a true switch hitter.”

Fury’s teasing of a switch to southpaw came just days after former trainer Jamie Moore tipped him to ditch his traditional orthodox stance.

During TNT Sports‘ Fight Breakdown, the 45-year-old said: ” We’ve seen Fury, in the past, box southpaw a lot.

“And I’ve got a feeling he’s gonna box this fight southpaw.

“Because he’s quite adaptable and he’s really good at fighting a southpaw.

“And it’s easier to get to a southpaw if you’re a southpaw and you know what you’re doing.

“And I can’t recall Usyk boxing a top-level southpaw. Not since he was an amateur.

“So I’ve got a feeling that’s what Fury’s tactics might be.”

Moore, however, reckons Usyk and his team will have anticipated Fury pulling a shock stance switch.

He said: “So if I’m putting myself in Usyk’s coaches’ shoes, I’m going, ‘See I think he’s gonna go southpaw.'”
