Watch as Tyson Fury's dad John hits punching bag with incredible strength at 56 as he joins son in the gym

TYSON FURY'S dad John has shown off his impressive punching power in a video posted to his Instagram yesterday.

The 56-year-old only joined the social networking site on Monday but has already caused a stir on the platform alongside his son.

In the latest clips, Fury Snr can be seen on the punching bag with son Tyson cheering him on in the gym.

"Go on big dog, put it in son," yells Tyson. "Finish him!"

After calling out Mike Tyson ahead of the former heavyweight champion's return to the ring, could Fury Snr be preparing for his own comeback fight?

John was a professional boxer himself between 1987 and 1995, finishing his career with a record of 8-4-1.

In June, he admitted to naming his world heavyweight champion son after Iron Mike, and would relish the chance to take him on.

Fury Snr said: "Listen, I’d like to have a go. You know, at the end of the day, I named my son after him, it would be a good thing.

"But I know one thing, he'll be in no better shape than me.

"I look as fat as a pig but I can run ten miles – no problem, today.

"I'm training all the time and I'm fit and strong and game. And I've got a good heart!"

Iron Mike, 54, is fighting fit once again at 17st while Fury Snr weighs in at 18st 7lbs.

Fury Snr has already amassed over 70,000 followers in his first few days of Instagram and his and Tyson's father-son antics have had fans in hysterics so far.
