Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury jokingly jibes his cousin’s opponent as the men then go on to share a moment of mutual respect.

It wasn’t long ago that it was Tyson Fury himself who was the focus of world heavyweight title fights, but this week he has gladly taken a passenger seat as his cousin bids to take the WBO heavyweight title from Joseph Parker.

Hughie Fury might have a steep challenge in front of him in the eyes of some, but his big cousin Tyson won’t be too far away in the background cheering him on.

A great moment before this week’s final presser was caught before the fight, where Fury could be seen jokingly shouting below:

“Looking smart Joe, looking smart mate.”

The two then went on to embrace one another in a moment of mutual respect as caught by GladrapChannel YouTube (hat tip):

Great stuff, Tyson.

His own comeback date is still up in the air at present with a seemingly never ending, highly complex case with UKAD ongoing at present.

The agency released a statement earlier this week saying they are making every effort to have the case processed as quickly as possible in the near future.
