Wladimir Klitschko is going to extreme lengths in training for his rematch with Tyson Fury in Manchester on July 9.

The 40-year-old Ukrainian (64-4-KO53) handed over the WBA Super, WBO and IBF world heavyweight titles after suffering November 2015's points defeat to Lancashire's Fury (25-0-KO18) in Dusseldorf.

Having exercised his contractual right to a rematch, Klitschko is adamant he still has what it takes to exact revenge on the champion and is keeping fans up-to-date with his training.

Klitschko recently posted photos of himself swimming and cycling but perhaps most interestingly of all was his workout in the Cryosauna.

He told the media: "I made a mistake, I'm embarrassed by it. You think you really know what cold is? Cryosauna, -150C gives you one of the best recoveries for your body and mind.

"In the first weeks of camp, I concentrate on basic training as always. Other than the classic Rocky Balboa-style workouts common in boxing, I integrate a lot of cycling and swimming into my schedule.

"The focus and motion of these two sports are perfect for building up physical and mental strength."
