Tyson Fury took a break from training to send a message of support to former world heavyweight champion Frank Bruno.
The former WBC heavyweight champion contracted pneumonia this week and was taken to hospital in Banbury.
A representative for Bruno revealed the 57-year-old was recovering but would need a few weeks worth of rest.
And the British boxing legend can count on the support of current lineal champion Fury in his recovery.
He posted a video on Twitter, saying: “I just want to wish my pal Frank Bruno – one of the great legends of British boxing – all the best.
“We’ve got to keep moving forward, Frank, as you know pal. I’m in the gym myself.
“Come on Frank, you can get over this mate, come back, and get back on it.
“All the best Frank, god bless.”
The 30-year-old is currently waiting to confirm his next opponent after signing a lucrative deal with American broadcaster ESPN worth a reported £80million.
