Fury Spars With Browne
Tyson Fury has made another step towards returning to the ring, as he’s become the sparring partner of Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne.
Browne, who is training in England for a March 24th fight against Dillian Whyte, is working with Fury at Ricky Hatton’s gym in Manchester.
“It was an absolute honor to share the ring with Tyson,” said Browne. “He has all the tricks in the book and he really made me think in there. He uses his reach so well, so you are always trying to overcome that problem. I had one or two tricks up my sleeve too”.
In a report from Boxing News, Browne’s trainer Rodney Williams was impressed with Fury’s work, claiming “It was what I call a cerebral spar. It made Lucas think and work on solving the problem in front of him. While stylistically Fury might not fight like Whyte, this was sparring at an elite level and will help Lucas with his preparations for the 24th”.
“Tyson is an absolute gentleman,” Browne continued.
“We get along really well and he is really down to earth. Once the TV cameras go on, that’s a different story, he’s selling himself. I can’t wait to see him get back in the middle of the heavyweight action.
Browne is also adding Nathan Gorman and Derek Chisora to the sparring mix, as he prepares for Whyte, who Browne claims won’t be “getting the same level of sparring” that he’s getting, and promising to hurt Whyte on the 24th.
