According to him, he is now training at 99kg, or 220 pounds, putting him comfortably below the level Anthony Joshua last fought at.
Joshua beat Andy Ruiz Jr at 107kg in December having lost 10lb after being criticised for carrying too much bulk.
He told FightHype: “We’ve just been training, boxing, and it feels great man.
"I come from 289lbs to 220lbs.
"And I feel good.”
Meanwhile, Joshua has stated that his discipline in cutting salt and sugar from his diet made him reclaim his heavyweight titles from Ruiz Jr.
Joshua lost the first fight to the Mexican-American where he was knocked down four times in the process.
The British fighter changed his plans going into the next bout in Saudi Arabia six months later and lost 4kg before the fight which he dominated all the rounds to become a two-time champion.
"I did cut out salt leading up to that fight but the food was so bland!" he told Men's Health.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Mike Tyson has revealed the possibility of death anytime and claims that "living might be more complicated than dying".
The former undisputed heavyweight king believes his fearless nature has driven him to embrace the possibility of giving up the ghost in the ring.
However, the youngest heavyweight champion ever said he had always thought he would be the one doing the killing during one of his fights rather than being at the receiving end.
