Default So Tyson fury is sparring MMA fighters

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

So why? As the writer mentioned in the piece, if they're not experienced boxers, what benefits can Fury get out of this?

oh look i offended the UK's favorite hype job and it's Phil Mitchell to the rescue! Anytime a white fighter is talked negatively about Phil is there to save the day! Honestly ***ton would be good sparring for Chaggy

by the way what is my kind? I'm curious

It doesnt do any harm, if it motivates him and gets him in shape its a good thing. However he needs serious work on technique as he still looks like a pikey fighter from an irish traveller family not a pro boxer

So he's really fighting Chagaev? That's a very dangerous fight for him Fury has to be in his best shape ever to win this fight

Maybe like someone else suggested.....it's to improve his abilty to clinch. I mean he doesnt need an MMA fighter to sit on the outside and eat his jab during sparring.

Andre Ward spars with Nick Diaz. Doesn't seem to hurt him.

Depends who they are. Mma spar at a much higher level than boxers. Boxers tend to enjoy living in a bubble. Most boxers spar too much with tough journeymen so I wouldn't overlook mma to come in and give it a go. Chagaev is crafty though so he must be doing some specific sparring with better boxers too.
