The word is out! Irish super heavyweight sensation Thomas Carty is the chosen sparring partner for WBC champ Tyson Fury. He's joined the British camp in Morecambe, gearing Fury up for his clash with WBA, WBO, IBO, and IBF champ Oleksandr Usyk.
Carty's record? He is a solid 7-0, with 6 KOs, and at 28 years old, he's in his prime. While we're light on the specifics, Carty stands tall at about 193 centimeters, just a notch above Usyk's 191.
The much-awaited Usyk vs. Fury face-off is set for February 17 in Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, Usyk's camp is hunting for sparring partners, reportedly sifting through around 50 candidates matching his specs.
