Opetaia leaves Fury's camp

Australian boxer Jai Opetaia (24-0, 19 KOs) has left the training camp of Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs), whom he helped prepare for a fight against Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs). The 28-year-old Sydney native managed to spar five rounds with the Gypsy King, as the Briton is known.

This was reported by talkSport. Opetaia was considered the perfect partner for Tyson during the training camp, but he quickly left Saudi Arabia and returned home. This was due to the lack of sparring with fighters who box in the left-hand stance.

At the same time, according to the source, some experts claim that Opetaia knocked Fury out, which is the real reason for the Australian's departure.

"Jai Opetaia recently returned from Saudi Arabia, where he sparred and trained with Tyson Fury. It was a fantastic, competitive rounds and an incredible experience for Jai. However, any talk of either boxer being sent to the canvas is not true," commented the boxer's promoter.
