Ahead of the fight, Main Event TV shared a video of ‘The Gypsy King’ talking about and praising some Australian heavyweight boxers.

He said, ”Yeah, I managed to watch young Joe spar recently. I mean, he looks good. He looks a very talented young guy. And also, you got Justis Huni. He looks pretty good as well. I managed to see the Paul Gallen fight. May I say Paul Gallen’s very gutsy.”

“He got some ba**s on him, credit to him. And also, you’ve got that, one of your neighbors, Joseph Parker. He was good, very good friend of mine. Lucas Brown, he’s still in the mix. So, yeah, Australia’s got a thriving heavyweight scene going on at moment.”

Parker, one renowned name in heavyweight boxing, is an integral part of Fury’s training camps.

The WBC champ (30-0-1) always looks to surround himself with some highly skilled fighters and Joseph Parker helps him elevate his skills. That said, Fury never fails to acknowledge everyone in his training camp alongside recognizing the budding talent he sees.
