The Liverpool striker is currently stateside as the England international works on his fitness following a hip operation near the end of the season.
Sturridge, who moved to Anfield from Chelsea in 2013, has posted various clips from his workout sessions at the gym in Boston over the past couple of weeks.
And the 25-year-old put on his boxing gloves for a sparring session as the Liverpool striker looked to improve his fitness ahead of the new season.
