Fury, 32, is getting into optimum shape by the legendary trainer SugarHill Steward.
In his latest Instagram upload, he asked his 4.1million followers to imagine Joshua’s face while he throws a series of brutal right jabs.
Alongside a clip throwing seven consecutive punches, Fury wrote: “Practice makes perfect, imagine @anthonyjoshua face getting smashed up with theses clean rights.”
Joining Fury in Vegas is close friend Billy Joe Saunders and fellow boxer Josh Taylor.
Joshua, 31, and Fury signed a two-fight £108million deal in March but promoters have yet to find a date and venue.
Saudi Arabia appears the most likely destination to determine who will be crowned undisputed champ.
Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn said the fight deal was ‘on the verge’ of being completed.
But those plans were thrown in doubt on Thursday when Fury’s promoter, Bob Arum, sensationally revealed the deal was ‘dead in the water.’

Speaking to the Telegraph, Arum said: “It will take months for the Saudis to do their due diligence on such a huge deal.
“It is not just a site fee, there are ancillary demands from the Saudis stretching into the broadcast deals and other things, it could take months for it all to play out.
“It could even take until 2022 the way it looks right now. The fight in July or August is dead in the water as far as we are concerned.
“The two fighters need to go and have other fights this summer while the negotiations for that fight in the Middle East conclude.”
