Posted by

Tyson Fury’s sparring partner and former WBO champion Joseph Parker had addressed certain rumours regarding ‘The Gypsy King’s’ injury.

Fury’s undisputed clash with Oleksandr Usyk was postponed for the second time following a cut sustained in sparring.

This led to some fans speculating on the authenticity of the cut and the timing after his performance in camp was questioned by Johnny Nelson amongst others.

But in an interview with iFL TV, Parker unsurprisingly dismissed the conspiracy theories.

He said: “I don’t think that you can escape seeing the opinions and the comments, a lot of people are talking real bad about him [Tyson Fury] and saying that it is a fake cut and that he made it happen.

“Everyone has an idea, everyone has an opinion, everyone wants to say this and say that and think that they know what is happening but that is boxing. These things happen and it is a freak accident.

“It is good that they have postponed the fight and not given the fight to anyone else because we do want to see that fight happen.

“I know that it will happen, there are things in place now where if someone pulls out of the fight there is something that they have to deal with so it will happen, May 18th.

Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are set to collide for all of the belts on May 18th.
