TYSON FURY has suffered a blow in his training camp to fight Dillian Whyte with his sparring partner suffering an injury.

Promoter Bob Arum revealed unbeaten prospect Jared Anderson was due to fly out and join Fury's camp.

But the American contender, also due to feature on the Wembley undercard, announced on Instagram he was injured.

Anderson, 22, posted: "To all my fans and supporters, I would like to personally apologise because I will no longer be able to fight on the Fury vs. Whyte undercard due to injury.

"I rushed this camp, and now I have to go into hiding. I will be back ten times stronger. Yours truly, The Real Big Baby.”

Anderson shot to recognition in Britain after being recruited for sparring ahead of Fury's 2020 rematch with Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, 36, was beaten in seven rounds and again Anderson was brought in for sparring before the trilogy bout last October.

Fury, 33, won the fight and wanted to bring the 11-0 prospect into his camp to replicate Whyte's 6ft 4in frame.

Arum told reporters last week: “He leaves this weekend to go to England to spar with Tyson. Tyson says there’s nobody like him for sparring.

“We look at Jared, without any question, as a future heavyweight champion.”

Fury may not have got the chance to share rounds with Anderson but has been in the gym with David Adeleye, 25, and Martin Bakole, 28.

And ahead of his UK homecoming on April 23, Bakole's coach Billy Nelson has been singing the Gypsy King's praises.

Nelson said: "Martin's really enjoying the sparring with Tyson Fury. It's clear to see why he is the world's number one.

"It's an excellent spar between the two of them. Also there's a mixture of sparring with David Adeleye."
