Joseph Parker is back at it again with the feelgood videos as the world adjusts itself to the coronavirus pandemic.
The New Zealander channelled his inner-Hugh Grant as he recreated the ‘Dancing Prime Minister’ scene from the film Love Actually.
Parker followed it up on Tuesday with a brilliant video of him lip syncing the famous 1960s hit ‘Build Me Up Buttercup.’
He had a few friends with him for this and you might just recognise one of them – WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Fury is someone who loves a good sing and dance, the ‘Gypsy King’ singing Don McLean’s ‘American Pie’ after his excellent victory over Deontay Wilder in February.
And Fury didn’t disappoint at all, busting out the moves while singing the song by The Foundations.
Below you can see the brilliant clip, which also has famous ring announcer, Michael Buffer, in it.
Parker has a huge amount of admiration for Fury, labelling him the ‘best heavyweight of our era’.
He told talkSPORT: “The first fight [vs Wilder], Fury won in my view but it was a draw as we all saw. The second fight, no one expected Fury to put him on the back foot like he explained he was going to do.
“I think it will be the same result in the third fight. I think Fury is probably the best heavyweight in our era. Fighting [Wladimir] Klitzchko and dethroning him and also coming back from everything he’s come back from, beating Wilder and getting the title, that’s incredible.”
It’s not clear when Fury will fight again with coronavirus putting boxing and the sporting world on hold.
However, whenever it is safe to resume boxing, the British fighter is expected to face Wilder again for a third bout as the American exercised a clause in the contract to a rematch.
The quicker we work together to stop coronavirus spreading, the sooner we can get back into the pubs, the gyms and stadiums and arenas to see live sport again…
