Tyson Fury sends message to old sparring partner Joe Joyce urging him to 'smash' Michael Wallisch

TYSON FURY urged Joe Joyce to smash Michael Wallisch tonight in a good luck video posted on Twitter.

The Gypsy King and 'Juggernaut' Joyce are old sparring partners and clearly have a good relationship.

Fury was sat inside and addressed the camera directly ahead of Joyce's clash with German Wallisch at the BT Sport Studios in London tonight.

He said: "This is Tyson Fury and this is a special video to big Joe Joyce 'the Juggernaut'.

"Good luck tonight Joe, do the business, smash it.

"And then get on to the big fight with Dubois.

"Good luck buddy, all the best."

Joyce will face fellow Brit Daniel Dubois at the O2 Arena in October if he comes through tonight's clash.

He has previously sparred with Fury and Anthony Joshua and hopes by winning his next two fights he can prove he is not "slow and s***".

The 2016 Olympic silver medalist was robbed of a Rio gold and is 10-0 as a professional.

But he trails Joshua, Fury, Dillian Whyte and Dubois in the British heavyweight popularity stakes.

He told SunSport: "Once I beat Dubois more people should get behind me.

“But I think there will always be people who will always say, ‘He is too old, too slow, stiff, robotic… s***. It’s a fickle sport.

“Hopefully all this build-up and frustration will make the world title at the end of the story the icing on the cake.

“Then I will hopefully get the admiration and respect I deserve.”
