Tyson Fury mobbed by fans in crazy scenes as he arrives at stadium for Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders
Tyson Fury was mobbed by a large group of supporters as he entered the AT&T Stadium to watch Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders on Saturday night.
The WBC heavyweight champion is in attendance to witness his friend and fellow Brit’s date with destiny.
Saunders is the WBO super-middleweight champion and will attempt to unify against WBA and WBC king Canelo.
He will have to do so in enemy territory, though Fury received a warm welcome when he arrived at the venue in Dallas.
The ‘Gypsy King’ was mobbed by fans who took pictures and followed him to his seat.
Eventually he was able to sit down and enjoy the action.
Previously, Fury gave his prediction for the fight.
He told Behind The Gloves: “I think Billy Joe gives him a boxing lesson.
“That’s what I’m here to see and that’s what I think will happen.
“I think everyone raves on about Canelo and how good he is and how he’s such a great guy but I just think every time Billy Joe steps into the pressure cooker he delivers, much like myself.”
He added: “Canelo’s tasted defeat and we know he can be outboxed because we’ve seen it. [Floyd] Mayweather outboxed him convincingly.
“He’s had a couple of sticky fights, struggled in a couple of southpaw fights. He struggled with [Erislandy] Lara.
“If Lara was a bit more of a name, a bit more of a draw, he probably would’ve got the decision.
“Billy Joe is a very good boxer, a very slick southpaw, and I know he’ll fancy this one.
“What’s on the line here is him [Saunders] being a world champion twice or going down as a great in the sport.
“This is what’s on the line here. He’s going to shock a lot of people and it’s going to be an easier fight then people think it is.”
