Tyson Fury is a ‘nightmare’, Fisher claims


Tyson Fury’s sparring partner Johnny Fisher says Fury is a nightmare to spar and a complete package. Fisher has also tipped the Brit to beat Deontay Wilder again.

Fury will defend the WBC heavyweight championship that he took from Wilder in their third clash on October 9 in Las Vegas.

The 33-year-old is training in Morecambe and has enlisted ‘the Romford Bull’ – a heavyweight prospect with a 3-0 record, to spar with.

Per SkySports, Fisher revealed details about Fury, saying: “The pressure, the skill, the punch output, the angles he throws his hands from are not like a conventional heavyweight.

“He is the whole package – he can move, he can box, he can punch, he’s strong, he has the brain, the height and the reach. He is a nightmare to spar.”

Asked if Fury will defeat Wilder again and also beat Anthony Joshua, Fisher said: “Wilder is the most dangerous puncher who has ever lived but, after seeing what Fury did to him last time, I can’t see why he wouldn’t do that again.

“On Fury’s day, he is the most talented boxer in the world with the best skill-set.

“If Fury doesn’t turn up, and Joshua boxes like a champion, he would win. Fury has to be on top of his game to beat Joshua.”
