Tyson Fury has asked Kevin Lerena if he would be ‘prepared to help him with sparring’ when his undisputed heavyweight title clash with Oleksandr Usyk gets confirmed. 

Fury and Usyk are still in talks over the unification bout but the Gypsy King is already planning his training camp and believes Lerena can help him prepare for the fight – which is likely to take place in March next year. 

Lerena said Fury – who is looking to take the WBA, IBF and WBO belts off the Ukrainian after securing the WBC title earlier this year – reached out to him via social media.

Lerena said Fury requested his help after sharing one of his posts on social media and claims he has accepted the challenge. 

The South African boxer also said he would be open to facing the Gypsy King in a professional fight if Usyk pulls out of their potential bout. 

Speaking exclusively to Sportsmail, via Betfred, Kevin Lerena said: ‘Tyson asked me if I would help him with sparring for Usyk.

‘He shared my post on social media and we got speaking and he asked me “if I fight Usyk will you be prepared to help me”, and I said “most definitely, it would be my pleasure”.

‘It would be great to learn from a guy like Tyson Fury. If Usyk doesn’t want to fight Tyson Fury and I beat Daniel Dubois, then it’s me against Tyson Fury. Let’s see.’ 

Fury will defend his WBC heavyweight belt against long-term dance partner Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, December 3. 

The Gypsy King holds two wins over Chisora, 38, coming in 2011 and 2014, and few are anticipating anything other than another one-sided victory.

Meanwhile, Lerena will take on Daniel Dubois on the same night – fighting against the British boxer on his home soil.

Dubois and Lerena will fight it out for the WBA ‘Regular’ heavyweight title, with ring-walks likely to take place around 8pm in the United Kingdom. 

Speaking about his fight on Saturday night and who he would like to face next, Lerena said: ‘This is my third fight at heavyweight after moving up from cruiserweight. 

‘The road is still a long one for me and I need to focus on beating Daniel Dubois, but obviously it does open up a lot of doors for me. 

‘It’s no secret, the WBA have said they’re going to do away with the regular belts and that’s going to put you as a mandatory for the super belts, so there’s opportunity there. I need to focus on Daniel Dubois and not look past that.’
