British bantamweight champion Josh Wale has been mixing with world champions as he prepares to feature on the biggest bill of his long career.

Wale's fight with Don Broadhurst on Saturday is one of the chief supporting contests to New Zealand's WBO world heavyweight champion Joseph Parker's defence against Hughie Fury.

Wale is backing Fury, cousin of former world title holder Tyson Fury, to win and keep the belt in the UK.

He said: "I think Hughie Fury will win on points. I think he will outbox him.

"Parker is strong but I think Hughie will get it on a points decision.

"You always support the British and it would be great to have another British world champion. I have always loved watching the heavyweights since watching Mike Tyson when I was a kid.

"It is a huge show to be a part of."

Wale has been surrounding himself with world champions in training camps this year.

In this camp he has sparred with former opponent Stuart Hall, whom he lost to in 2012 before Hall won the IBF bantamweight title, as well as WBA super-flyweight champion Kal Yafai.

It follows sessions with Doncaster's Jamie McDonnell earlier this year.

He believes it is bringing the best out of him.

He said: "I've sparred with Kal and Stuart in Birmingham as well as sessions with the Commonwealth champion Jason Cunningham and the unbeaten Tommy Frank from Sheffield, who's small like Broadhurst.

"You cannot get better sparring than what I have had this year and I did well in it.

"It was good to spar with Stuart as a fully fledged man coming into my peak."
