Tyson Fury wears amazing custom suit to watch best pal Joseph Parker race to outrageous 89-SECOND KO win vs Faiga Opelu
TYSON FURY cheered best pal and training partner Joseph Parker to an 89-second victory on Wednesday in Australia wearing a stunning custom suit.
The 34-year-old WBC Gypsy King flew Down Under to support his New Zealand pal as he waits for his next defence to be decided.

The 6ft 9in Morecambe mastermind played with the Aussie media all week, promising to fight over there soon and drink the place dry on his flying visit.
So it was down to Parker – who reigned as WBO heavyweight before Anthony Joshua dethroned him back in 2018 – to focus on serious and fast business.
The Samoan slugger kept up his rebuild – after last year’s bloody and brutal KO loss to Joe Joyce – with a win over Faiga Opelu 1min and 29 seconds.
Before Fury even had a chance to bark any advice, Parker landed booming right hands and a couple of chopping left hooks.
Opelu tried to bob and weave but he got peppered with a range of blows before he turned his back on the attack and fell to the floor.
Without even starting to count, the referee helped pick dazed Opelu off of the canvas and helped him into a corner before waving the brief one-sided fight off.
This was Parker’s latest step towards re-joining the division’s biggest names, although Fury has insisted he would rather give the Kiwi his belt rather than fight him, as he took his record to 32-3.
He said afterwards: “I’d like to thank Django for taking the fight and putting on the best performance he could.

“I want to keep busy, anyone who’s keen, anywhere. I just want to fight.”
Meanwhile, Fury said: “I’d like to see him fight maybe a rematch with Andy Ruiz, or a rematch with Joe Joyce, or even Dillian Whyte or even AJ.
“Joseph Parker is back on the map!”
