Helping him get ready for a showdown with boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez.

The fight on May 8th is just around the corner now.

Well over 60,000 fans are expected in attendance for one of the biggest fights of the year.

Fury is tipping his training partner Saunders for the upset:

Fury for his part is expected to take on Anthony Joshua in the summer time.

A fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship.

The fight between Canelo and Saunders on May 8th will be for the WBC, WBA and WBO super-middleweight titles.

Saunders has never lost as a professional boxer in 30 fights.

Canelo has only ever lost to Floyd Mayweather.

That was all the way back in 2013.

A lot has been mentioned about the judges before the fight with Saunders but it has been confirmed that all three judges will be neutral.

No Mexican or UK judges for the fight.
