Tyson Fury looking to get ANOTHER one over on Dillian Whyte by training Jermaine Franklin to beat him | The Sun

TYSON FURY could look to get another one over old rival Dillian Whyte… by training Jermaine Franklin to beat him.

Fury KO'd Whyte in April at Wembley, which was the last time either stepped foot inside the ring.

The WBC champion, 34, is now set to return on December 3 at Tottenham's stadium in a trilogy bout with Derek Chisora, 38.

And he is set to bring Franklin in for sparring, while the American also prepares to fight Whyte on November 26.

Franklin, 29, told the Daily Mail: "I am very honoured they even invited me go to the training camp with them.

"I am honoured and it's a great opportunity. I just want to learn all I can from a world champion.

Dillian Whyte to make boxing return v Jermaine Franklin on November 26

"Tyson has been in the game for a while. He comes from a family of boxers.

"I am pretty sure they have got their own insight into how they do things and how they manoeuvre. They have certain tactics they do in the ring.

"I am pretty sure he's not going to give me all the tricks of the trade but I'm sure I will learn a little something from him."

Franklin's representative, Dean Caslake, hopes Fury will pass on his knowledge of sharing the ring with Whyte, 34.

Caslake said: "Chisora and Jermaine are relatively similar in terms of physicality and style.

"Also, Dillian is similar to that as well. Tyson obviously beat Dillian before so there's going to be a lot of tips and pointers that Tyson can give him.

"It was quite a comprehensive win. It wasn't like Tyson was ever really in any trouble.

"He is currently the greatest heavyweight on the planet. No one can really deny that until someone faces him and beats him."
