EX-HEAVYWEIGHT boxing champion Tony Tucker is officially part of the Costa ‘fist and chip brigade’.

The boxer, who was in Spain to promote his new gym, dropped into Marlows Fish and Chips Restaurant near Duquesa to sample a ‘dynamite’ cod and chips with mushy peas.

“It was great to learn more about his fights with Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Buster Douglas,” said owner Steve Marlow.
