Ramsay visited Fury in his dressing room prior to the Morecambe heavyweight’s fight against Tom Schwarz back in June 2019, who he defeated by knockout in just two rounds.

The 53-year-old also watched Fury’s comeback fight against Sefer Seferi at the Manchester Arena in 2018 in what was his first bout after a three-year lay-off.
The Scot had a chat with Fury prior to his rematch with Wilder on Saturday night and then told BT Sport exactly how he felt the fight would pan out.
He said: ‘It’s all on the line tonight, he’s looking good, I went in the dressing room earlier, he’s calm and composed, he’s the right weight this time.

‘He’s got a new trainer, new team and he just needs to dodge that bullet get it right and get it done in seven rounds.’
Fury then proceeded do exactly that as he dominated the previously unbeaten Wilder before his corner threw the towel in and ended the contest in round seven.
The victory saw Fury relieve the Alabama heavyweight of his WBC and ring magazine belts and potentially setup a summer bout with Anthony Joshua.

Wilder has been criticised for making a host of excuses for his defeat in the days since the fight, including blaming his 40lb ringwalk costume for draining him of energy.
Footage has since emerged of the American telling podcast host Joe Rogan that he routinely wears a 40lb weighted vest in training to prepare for the rigours of battle.
