Tyson Fury has offered to help Joseph Parker prepare for his unification title fight with Anthony Joshua by sparring with him.

Joshua and Parker have agreed to put their IBF, WBA Super, IBO and WBO belts and unbeaten records on the line in the fight, which will take place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on April 1 (NZ time).

The fight will be the first time in history that two reigning heavyweight world champions have met in the United Kingdom.

Fury, who previously held all the belts that are up for grabs in the highly anticipated bout tweeted Parker on Friday morning (NZ time) offering his support to help the Kiwi train for the fight. 

"I've got a show on the night your boxing in England but if you want I'll come spar you when your in uk training for the fight, it wil help both me & you, you won't find better sparing than me I promise you. Let me know pal? [sic]" the tweet said. 

Parker has yet to respond to the tweet, but he retweeted the message.

The two formed an unexpected relationship in 2017 during the lead up to Parker's fight against Tyson's cousin, Hughie.

Tyson and Parker partied heavily after the Kiwi defended his title against Hughie by performing a haka which included former Warriors winger Manu Vatuvei.
