John Fury demands Tyson sack ‘Judas’ SugarHill Steward in bizarre rant
A deal between the Fury and Usyk to fight on April 29 at Wembley Stadium had been on the verge of completion, but negotiations ultimately collapsed as disagreements over the split for a rematch proved to be an obstacle too far.
Fury had announced he had officially started his camp for the bout, with trainer Steward seen in the UK, however the American then clarified he was only over for Lawrence Okolie’s fight with David Light, which had his full focus.
Those are comments that infuriated John, who has urged his son to get rid of his entire training team.
“Tyson knows my opinion and that is all those people wrapped around him want sacking, the full lot,” Fury Snr told the Metro.
“If they talk about loyalty, that’s not loyalty as far as I’m concerned. If you are stood by your man, shoulder to shoulder, you take it all. You’re not going to pass the blame or distance yourself from him. Tyson is my son and I will stand with him until the day I die.
“That thing with SugarHill the other day, what the hell was that about? What was he talking about? When I have seen him training Tyson, he was living in Tyson’s house, he had his missus there, he was using the gym and I have seen him working Tyson out.
“And all of a sudden he denied him like Judas Iscariot denied Jesus Christ? What the hell was going on there?”
Steward joined Fury’s team ahead of the second fight with Deontay Wilder, one which he won by knockout and, after then beating Wilder in the trilogy bout, there have since been stoppage wins over Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora.
Fury has struck up an incredibly close bond with Steward during their time working together, but that has not stopped his father demanding an end to the partnership.
“Tyson just falls in love with these people and finds out they are not who they seem to be,” Fury said. “It is all about pound signs and he has put SugarHill where he is.
“He give these guys a chance like the others he has put around him and it has ended in tears. Get rid of them, clear the board.
“They all want to be his best mate but as soon as things get a bit sticky and he gets a few bad comments, people want to distance themselves from him.”
