TYSON FURY has been urged to SACK “Judas” trainer SugarHill Steward by his dad John.
The Gypsy King started working with Steward in 2020, with the duo since enjoying great success together.

Tyson Fury’s proposed bout with Oleksandr Usyk fell through
Fury, 34, had been expected to take on Oleksandr Usyk in a historic heavyweight unification bout on April 29 at Wembley.
The fight fell through last week, however, after promoters failed to agree a deal.
Throughout talks the Gypsy King had appeared to be in training with Steward in the North West.
But the highly-respected trainer has since revealed that he was in the region to work with Lawrence Okolie for his fight with David Light – and that his flight home was also planned for March 28 – suggesting that Team Fury were never anticipating the Usyk bout to come to fruition.
Steward’s comments have enraged John Fury, who has now called on his son to SACK his trainer.
John told Metro: “Tyson knows my opinion and that is all those people wrapped around him want sacking. The full lot.
“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? “I’m only here for Okolie.” 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 denied him like Judas Iscariot denied Jesus Christ? What the hell was going on there?
“For me, that is a sacking offence. He will be down the road for that charade. It was upsetting.
“Tyson just falls in love with these people and finds out they are not who they seem to be. It is all about pound signs and he has put SugarHill where 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. How does the heavyweight champion need all this?
‘GET RID OF THEM ALL’
“It would be easier if he did it all himself and he has got capable people around him to help him do it. Not just me. With sound people around him we can make the right decisions and get on with it.
“Get rid of them all. 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.”
John Fury also sought to place the blame for Tyson’s Usyk bout falling through at the hands of promoters Frank Warren and Alex Krassyuk.
The Gypsy King lowballed Usyk with a 70-30 offer… only for the Ukrainian to accept.
But the bout STILL failed to be agreed.
On where the blame should lie, John said: “I’m confused, the country is confused, the world is confused.
“But the only ones not confused are the handlers. The promoters.
“They always seem to put a spanner in the works. But we are where we are. If it is meant to be, it will happen.”

- Guarding techniques
- Movement of the body
- Spare parts
There are seven types of punches available: Left Hook and Right Hook, Cross, Cross, Straight, Underhand, Overhand, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, Cross, Straight, and Overhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches require more force than others. For example, an uppercut requires great force. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.
There are also different combinations. These are combinations of punches which work together to achieve a goal. A combination may have multiple parts. An example of this is a left hook, followed by a right crossing. This will damage the opponent’s jaw.
Boxers protect themselves by protecting their bodies. He uses his arms, legs, elbows, knees, knees, and feet to do this.
Boxers should use their legs to defend against kicks. When he receives a kick, he raises his leg and moves away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked in the side, he bends down if the attacker attacks from the front. But if the attack comes in the back, he will stand straight and block the kick using his foot.
Elbow strikes are very powerful because they inflict great pain. An elbow strike may be delivered directly or in an indirect manner. Directly means that your opponent is hit with your forearm. However, indirectly means that your elbow strike is delivered with another part or your arm.
Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. To do so, they raise their fists above their head and move them towards the direction of the attack. They then touch the attackers fist.
A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. Defense purposes are often served by knee strikes.
When attacked, a boxer should step back and deliver counter-attacks. This will help him gain distance from his opponent. Additionally, boxers need to maintain their balance when they counter-attack.
In order to box effectively, a boxer needs to establish a stance. The way he defends him will be dictated by his stance. It determines where he will face his opponent and how he will position his body. There are many positions that boxers can adopt. Here are the most commonly used ones:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance

Move your body
Boxers must maneuver around their opponent to win fights. This requires changing your position, speed, and rhythm.
Boxers rotate their arms when they throw a punch. Depending on what punch is being thrown, the speed of rotation varies.
The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A combination that is effective starts with a strong punch, and ends with one that is weak.
Sparring is a training session that improves boxing skills. During sparring sessions, a boxer trains his mind as well as his body. Sparring is a way to learn how to fight without getting hurt.
