Tyson Fury sparring with Michael Sprott & Dillian Whyte to get ready for David Haye

David Haye Michael Sprott Tyson FuryBy Scott Gilfoid: It looks like unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) could use some sparring partners to get ready for his September 28th fight against David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) in Manchester. Fury’s sparring partners to get ready for Haye are Michael Sprott and Dillian Whyte, according Fightnews.

Sprott is nothing like Haye, so he shouldn’t even be one of Fury’s sparring partners. Whyte, 25, has good right hand power, but he’s slower than heck, and he doesn’t use his left hand like Haye does.

It’s almost a waste of time to have him as a sparring partner as well. If I was the trainer for Fury, I’d give both of those guys the boot, and look for some quality sparring partners that can give Fury at least a little bit of good sparring instead of him just twiddling his thumbs sparring without getting helped.

At the end of the day, Fury is going to have problems no matter who he spars to get ready for this fight. I mean, they could get American heavyweight Deontay Wilder to help Fury out, and he’d still be in deep, deep trouble once he got into the ring with Haye, because Fury’s chin will get exposed by Haye. If you use a good fighter like Deontay to help Fury, it would probably work against Fury because he’d take a beating in training camp, and likely have very little left by the time he entered the ring to face Haye.

Fury seems to have taken off a lot of blubber in the last few months judging from recent video of him. However, Fury has also lost muscle to go along with the fat that he trimmed off of his waist. Fury looks kind of dried out right now like a fighter that has dieted too much to get to a weight that his body isn’t really comfortable.

I don’t think that’s going to be a good thing for him in this fight, because he’s already giving away hand speed, quickness and experience to Haye. If you take away the little bit of muscle that Fury has, he’s going to end up looking like a wet noodle out in the ring at the Manchester Arena on September 28th.
