UK boxer Hughie Fury has posted a picture to Twitter of him in a slaughter house beating the meat of animal carcasses in anticipation of his showdown with Kiwi boxer Joseph Parker.

The picture shows Fury's fists drenched in blood with battered and bruised carcasses in the background in what can only be a warning to his next opponent.

"Be all in or get all out. There is no halfway," the posted on Twitter reads.

Fury currently has a record of 20 wins and no loses.

His cousin, Tyson Fury who famously defeated Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, recently called Parker "the complete product" and said the Fury-Parker fight would put on a good show.

"Hughie's no pushover, Hughie's a tough opponent, unbeaten and I'm sure he's going to have a great game plan to win on the night."

(Hughie) Fury is set to face Parker, who has a 22-0 record, in the ring at Manchester Arena in the UK on September 23.

An early fight between the pair was scheduled in for May 6 in Auckland this year, however because of "problems" with the Fury camp, they never made into the ring and the fight was cancelled.
