John Fury Remains in Conflict with SugarHill Steward: Calls for Tyson Fury to Get Rid of Trainer

John Fury remains steadfast in his belief that his son, Tyson Fury, should part ways with his trainer, SugarHill Steward.

Since switching from Ben Davison after his draw with Deontay Wilder, the 'Gypsy King' has enjoyed considerable success under Steward's guidance. Fury secured consecutive victories over Wilder, ultimately becoming the WBC heavyweight champion.

However, recent statements made by SugarHill about training Fury for a potential fight against Oleksandr Usyk sparked controversy after discussions for the match fell apart. The situation has added fuel to John Fury's conviction that a change in trainers might be necessary for Tyson's future bouts.

Negotiations for the rematch between the boxers fell apart due to an inability to reach a deal on the financial terms.

During this time, Fury asserted that he was actively preparing for the fight with Steward.

However, Steward later contradicted Fury's claims, stating that he was in Manchester solely to train Lawrence Okolie and was not training Fury.

These contradictory statements fueled a strong reaction from John Fury, who was visibly upset by the situation.

"If a man turns on you they've got to go, haven't they? Going back to Sugar Hill about him saying that he wasn't training Tyson, that was a lie. He had no need to say that, I'm waiting to see him to his face to tell him it's a lie. It will probably cause problems but I don't care what it causes, he's getting told off me one way or the other," John Fury said.

"It's in his best interest to avoid me because I won't have them snakes near me. There's a world full of them, be straight. He was living in Tyson's house. Where was he coming from with that bullsh!t? I stand by what I say, he's down the road as far as I'm concerned but it's not my call, if [Tyson] had any sense he would get rid of him.

"A pigeon could train Tyson he's that good, honestly. Give him a drink of water, wash his gumshield out and let him go. All of those expensive trainers are not needed. Until he made that comment, I couldn't sing his praises high enough. Tyson got on with him and we thought he was a family friend, but to me that was just terrible what he did."
