Joshua vs Parker: Tyson Fury won’t be used as one of Joseph Parker’s sparring partners:
Tyson Fury won’t be used as one of Joseph Parker’s sparring partners as he gets ready for his heavyweight unification showdown with Anthony Joshua.
Parker’s coach, Kevin Barry, has revealed the former Ring Magazine world champion has offered his services when the New Zealander lands in London before the March 31 showdown.
“Tyson put his hand up to help us in the last two weeks once we arrived,” Barry told Sky Sports News.
“Really, two weeks out, we don’t need to be getting in there with a 6ft 9in Tyson Fury!

“Tyson’s a great friend of our team and we appreciate all the support he gives us, but that just doesn’t work out for us.”
