Tyson Fury handed SEVEN new WBC replica belts as he gets private jet with brother Tommy to watch Saunders fight Canelo
TYSON FURY flew to Texas on a private jet with brother Tommy to watch Billy Joe Saunders fight Canelo Alvarez.
And when he landed, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman gifted his heavyweight champion SEVEN new replica belts.
Fury, 32, and Tommy, 21, were both training in Las Vegas before jetting off to Arlington to support close friend Saunders.
The Gypsy King had already praised his legendary promoter Bob Arum for lending him the jet to fly over.
Fury captured his journey and the moment he landed as he promised a masterclass from Saunders.
Later, Sulaiman handed the Brit memorabilia in the shape of mini title belts.
Fury is set to put his WBC strap on the line with 30-year-old Anthony Joshua's WBA, IBF and WBO crowns in an undisputed title decider.
The pair have agreed a site deal, believed to be in Saudi Arabia, for a mega unification on August 7.
Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn hopes to finally announce the fight on the weekend while Fury sits ringside.
But for now the attention is on Saunders, 31, and pound-for-pound king Canelo, 30, only once beaten against Floyd Mayweather, 44, in 2013.

Fury has predicted a similar masterpiece and believes BJS can go one further by knocking out the Mexican superstar.
He said: “I think he’s gonna give him a boxing lesson and smash him, stop him around about round 11 or 12.
"Really confident, honestly. Never been this confident about anything in me life.
“Billy’s gonna hit him with the jab, meet him straight with the jab, right in the mouth.
"Every time — ping, ping, ping! You’re gonna see something really special.
“Don’t make Canelo out to be some killer! He’s just a little man with a pair of boxing gloves on. That’s all he is.”
