Peter Fury, Tyson Fury’s uncle and head trainer, has revealed via his Twitter page how unbeaten Fury is sparring in Belgium at the moment, with experienced Michael Sprott and unbeaten prospect Dillian Whyte providing the 24-year-old with hard sparring ahead of his big showdown with David Haye.
Sporting a shaven head, Fury, 21-0(15) welcomed Sprott and Whyte to his Belgian base this week. Sprott, the former British and Commonwealth champion, is as experienced as they come at 37-20(17) and the 6’1” heavyweight has faced many of the division’s top names during his up and down career. Whyte, currently banned due to failing a drugs test, is 9-0(6) as a pro and his speed will no doubt be getting Fury ready for the speed of Haye.
Judging by the photos, Tyson is in good shape already, looking muscular and trim. There is no word yet on who Haye will spar with ahead of the hugely intriguing September 28th clash.
