AS Billy Joe Saunders prepares for his July 8 WBO middleweight title fight against Avtandil Khurtsidze, he has had an imposing training partner in former heavyweight kingpin, Tyson Fury.

“Tyson is a good mate of mine we have been friends for years and I suggested to him that he should come out there in Marbella and train with me,” Saunders said. “I told him it would be good to clear his mind completely because the last three months, he’s started to really get back into things.

“I know he is back on the right road and going over to Spain was like putting the icing on top of the cake.
