USA: Tyson Fury embodies Mexican wrestler persona when sparring

United States, Las Vegas
September 11, 2019 at 01:26 GMT +00:00 · Published

Tyson Fury - the 'Gypsy King' - became a lucha libre wrestler at his sparring session in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

The British heavyweight approached a makeshift ring in white mask characteristic of luchadors. After sparring with a member of his coaching team, Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) then waved a giant Mexican flag.

The choice of Mexico as a theme is deliberate, with the country's Independence Day nearing. Indeed, the Gypsy King dressed as Uncle Sam for his last fight against Tom Schwartz in June.

His opponent, Swede Wallin (20-0, 13 KO's), then took to the ring for a session with his coach.

The pair are due to fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
