Sexton takes the lead in training in a bid to beat Williams
Commonwealth heavyweight champion Sam Sexton has added some bite to his training camp by teaming up with two wolf dogs. The Norwich fighter, who tackles British champion Danny Williams on February 13 at Wembley Arena, has been out running with Tia and Oslo - owned by his conditioning trainer Neil Featherby - who are both happier in the snow than he is.
Commonwealth heavyweight champion Sam Sexton has added some bite to his training camp by teaming up with two wolf dogs.
The Norwich fighter, who tackles British champion Danny Williams on February 13 at Wembley Arena, has been out running with Tia and Oslo - owned by his conditioning trainer Neil Featherby - who are both happier in the snow than he is.
'Doing roadwork while trying to keep control of two dogs isn't easy,' said the 25-year-old, who headlines Warren's big Night of the Champions show, to be shown live on Sky Sports.
'But they are helping to build up my strength ahead of the Williams fight and that's exactly what I need at the moment.
