TYSON FURY’S ‘super-human’ comeback is inspiring Joseph Parker, who has joined training camp for the Deontay Wilder trilogy fight.

Fury last year completed a remarkable career turnaround as he dethroned Wilder of the WBC belt.

It came only two years after he first returned to the ring, having been sidelined since 2015 after a battle with depression and substance abuse.

Fury’s journey, which included shedding TEN STONE, has resonated and motivated even former world champions like Parker.

The New Zealander, who formerly held the WBO belt, is continuing to look up to the Gypsy King, having now linked up with him in Las Vegas.

Parker’s manager David Higgins told Sky Sports: “To come back and become world champion, the way that he did, is one of the most super-human efforts in the history of sport.

“That’s not just a physical thing, it’s a mental thing. It’s utter self-belief and winning attitude.

“The way he got up in that Wilder fight and the way he destroyed Wilder in the next fight, again that goes beyond the physical, it’s the whole package.

“He’s such a positive guy, he’s inspirational, and I know that Joseph greatly appreciates being part of that buzz, and has confirmed that it is inspirational, a great energy to be around.

“He said that everyone pushes each other to go the extra mile, so you’re feeding off each other, pushing harder and further, and Joseph contrasted it to training by himself.

“He said that there’s more energy and you’ll push a bit harder, being in that environment, so he’s only said good things about training with Tyson Fury.”

Fury, 32, sparked a friendship with Parker, 29, after the Kiwi heavyweight beat his cousin Hughie, 26, in 2017.

Their relationship grew stronger after Fury recommended his assistant coach Andy Lee, to Parker, who was searching for a new head trainer.
