Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has waded into the war of words going on between Daniel Ghita and Rico Verhoeven.
Fury, working towards a top contender spot in boxing's heavyweight division, knows both men well. Verhoeven and Ghita are former training partners and Fury trained with them both in recent years.
Until recently, Ghita did a lot of his training at the SuperPro Center in the Netherlands, headed by Verhoeven's coach Dennis Krauweel.
Anglo-Irish boxer Fury was also often to be found there. He has spent considerable time based in the Netherlands in recent years, preferring the peace and quiet he can find there, and he has trained with Verhoeven, Ghita and Albert Kraus among others.
