BOXING legend Frank Bruno has named Tyson Fury as huis favourite boxer.
Like most of us on lockdown as the coronavirus spreads around the globe, the former WBC heavyweight champ is using social media to contact the outside world.
Bruno decided to do a Q&A session, with one fan asking him who his favourite fighter was.
The 58-year-old answered: "At present I would say @GypsyKing.
"His comeback has been inspirational and he has done everything he set out to do."
Bruno was of course referencing Fury's stunning demolition of previously undefeated Deontay Wilder in his seventh-round stoppage win in February.
The answer was noticed by Fury himself, who shared it on his own Instagram stories.
And of course the two have a fair few things in common – not least being proud owners of that WBC title.
BOTH WBC LEGENDS
Bruno won his when he defeated Oliver McCall in Spetember 1995, losing it in his very night fight against fellow ring legend Mike Tyson the following year.
Fury picked up that famous green belt when he battered Wilder, flooring the 34-year-old twice en route to a seventh-round TKO.
SunSport has reported that Fury could fight Jarrell Miller after Wilder pushing a Battle of Britain against Anthony Joshua back further.
The WBC heavyweight champ will put the green belt on the line when he completes his trilogy against Wilder, scheduled for July 18.
Miller is ready for his own comeback in the sport after serving a drugs ban – and that could see him bag a shock shot at the Gypsy King who is signed up with the same Top Rank US promoter.
Speaking about whether a crack at Fury is a real option, Miller told Sky Sports: “I think it is. I think that they were talking about it after Fury fighting Wilder again.
“I was supposed to be the co-main event for that fight. I was supposed to be the co-main event for the last fight.
“I think that will be definitely in the future.”
