With just six weeks to prepare for the historic fight, Fury has yet to link up with trainer Sugarhill Steward or recruit sparring partners.

But first on his list of lefties is undefeated former undisputed super lightweight champion Taylor.

Fury – known for making incredible statements leading up to fights – said on Instagram: “Second session of the day ended. Brutalized, second session of the day.

“I have some big, big, big, big news to announce. I’m about to bring my sparring partner Josh ‘The Tartan Tornado’ Taylor.

“He’s coming next week to start sparring for the bitch Usyk. Can not Hardly Wait.

“The training camp is going fantastically, I can’t remember having had a better camp lately. Absolutely hooked.”

Fury, 34, weighed 18.8 pounds last December when he defeated Derek Chisora ​​in ten rounds of their trilogy fight.

So the 6’9″ Gypsy King towers over the 5’10” Taylor, 32, who used to have all four belts in the 10th grade. EIGHT STONE under.

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has claimed the undisputed title decider is for Wembley ON.

But his opposite number Alex Krassyuk voiced his own concerns, revealing Usyk, 36, will ONLY accept a 70/30 split when the fight takes place next month.

Krassyuk tells Sky Sports: “Usyk was very clear in his message: ’29. April, I accept 70/30.’

“So all the terms accepted by Usyk are due for April 29th only.

“And (manager) Egis Klimas said on Twitter yesterday that if it moves just one day it will be 50/50 again.”
