The next few weeks will see the UK host two world heavyweight title fights, both involving British heavyweight champions.

It is a clear indication as to how buoyant the boxing scene is in the UK at the moment and not just the heavyweight division.

The first of these two title fights takes place at the O2 Arena, in London, when Anthony Joshua, the IBF champion, defends his belt against the unbeaten American Dominic Breazeale.

The second of these fights, in early July, sees Tyson Fury?s re-match with Wladimir Klitschko, a fight which will see him defend his WBO and WBA titles, in Manchester.

Tyson, after beating Wladimir in their first bout was stripped of the IBF belt because over a contractual obligation to have a re-match with the Ukrainian.

However, although he?s in his training camp for the Klitschko fight, it hasn?t stopped Fury having his say about the IBF version of the title being fought over in London this Saturday evening with the self-proclaimed Gypsy King remarking,

?I don?t think Breazeale is any good at all. I just see it being a knock-over again.

?You can fight bums but in the long run it won?t be good for Joshua.?

Never short of a nice word or two is our Tyson!
