Never-Before-Seen Footage Of Tyson Fury Training For Deontay Wilder Rematch Has Emerged
Unseen footage of Tyson Fury's pad session before taking on Deontay Wilder has been released and it makes for remarkable viewing.
The WBC heavyweight champion reclaimed his title by handing Wilder the first defeat of his professional career in Las Vegas last month.
Fury had banned BT Sport releasing the footage of the 'Gypsy King' training with coach Sugar Hill Steward.
But extended footage has now been released showing Fury with head coach Sugar Hill Steward and it offers great insight into how the 31-year-old has become one of the world's top heavyweights.
Despite only training, Fury's coordination is top notch and manages to strike every pad with pinpoint accuracy.
Fans have commented on the footage and have pointed out that the lineal heavyweight champion doesn't even look to be performing at top intensity.
One YouTuber commented: "It doesn't look like he is trying. He still whoops everyone in the division."
While a second stated: "Haven't seen Fury southpaw on the pads for a while. His range and technique is so impressive for a heavyweight. Fights more like a light heavyweight."
A third said: "Basic but effective. Cutting the ring off, feint then one - two."
Another also explained: "What a smart man Sugar Hill, pure class! Everyone said Fury changing trainers was a bad idea lol... this is Emmanuel Steward gym, the best trainer of all time."

Fury's begun his comeback trail in 2018 with Ben Davison as his coach, the man who had helped him lose weight he had put on during his battle with depression.
However, he shocked the boxing world when he split with Davison in December, just weeks before his clash with the 'Bronze Bomber' and brought in Steward.
"I was going a little bit stale, repetitive, doing the same things day in, day out for years," Fury said of the change per talkSPORT.
"I needed a change.
"We're gonna go back to basics. I trained with SugarHill back in 2010, we got on like a house on fire."
Sugar Hill was given also credit for giving Fury the combination which sealed his victory at the MGM Grand Arena.
"Before round seven SugarHill said to him, 'You know what to do, left jab, left jab, feint, feint, step back, one two'. And he went out and did it. It was perfect," Fury's trainer Andy Lee told BoxingSocial.
You have to wonder if Fury can train as hard for his trilogy bout with Wilder currently slated for July.
