Fury to face veteran Botha
Undefeated Brit heavyweight prospect Tyson Fury will meet veteran Francois Botha on February 19 at Wembley Arena, London.
Botha will be Fury’s toughest opponent yet, having only lost to the likes of Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, Wladimir Klitschko and Michael Moorer in a career spanning 20-years and 56 fights.
And the South African is planning on handing the young pretender a ‘boxing lesson’ when they meet next month.
‘This old man is coming to England to give him a boxing lesson. He is a young up and coming star in the UK but look at who he's fought and look at who I've fought - and hopefully the UK will have a great fight as long as it lasts.
‘I hear that Tyson is a good fella and maybe I'll share a beer with him after he wakes up from the knockout the White Buffalo is going to impose upon him,’ said Botha.
