Tyson Fury's fists 'feel like rocks' according to sparring partner


Aleksandar Mraovic, who is currently training with Tyson Fury believes, the "Gypsy King" packs quite the power punch. Fury is getting ready for a potential fight against fellow Brit Anthony Joshua after the pair have spent years involved in a public war of words. According to Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn, the bout is likely to be held in Saudi Arabia. However, it is likely that when the duo eventually put pen to paper, it will be a two-fight contract ensuring a rematch in the U.K. 24-year-old Mraovic, nicknamed "The Austrian Bull", explained [via Daily Star]: "This man is not of this world, he’s a different animal. He’s punching like a machine, I've never felt punches like that before from anybody. He even showed me a little bit how he got the power and how he works on it. "His fists feel like rocks, they feel like rocks on you, it’s incredible. The power comes from how he punches and how he uses his weight." The Austrian fighter went on to explain Fury's physical fitness. "He’s in great condition, he never had a bodybuilder’s body but he moves like a real athlete. He did twenty rounds, no problem. We were all done after 12 rounds, we did a lot of body sparring, we were all dead. And he kept doing the heavy bag and pad work, he’s crazy. He does not know when to stop. "His movement is amazing and he wasn’t even fully fit. He doesn’t give up, that’s how we all know him. He doesn’t give up; neither in life, neither in the ring, neither in the training. He never gives up. That was his first sparring after the Deontay Wilder fight. He is sick, he is crazy good."
