(Video) “Last of a dying breed” – Nick Diaz hails Tyson Fury after sparring session in Miami

Nick Diaz and Tyson Fury have been filmed sparring together in Miami, with the lineal heavyweight champion being described as the last of a dying breed.

Diaz has been out of the octagon for several years now, but with the former UFC star keeping his finger on the pulse of the fight game, there’s always a possibility that there will be a comeback fight at some point in time.

He’s clearly taking extraordinary measures to ensure that he is well-equipped to win, should he fight again, having been filmed sparring the lineal and WBC heavyweight champion of the world in Miami.

You get the impression that Diaz was impressed with what he saw from Fury, who is expected to take on Anthony Joshua later this year in his bid to unify the heavyweight division.

Diaz is a fan-favourite in the UFC, so you imagine there’ll be plenty out there hoping to see him fight again. Though, after so long out, how much can be expected of him?
