Tyson Fury’s Trainer Explains How The 'Gypsy King' Can Defeat Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury’s Trainer Explains How The 'Gypsy King' Can Defeat Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury's newly-appointed trainer has already identified the main aspects his fighter must focus on in his hotly-anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder.

The 31-year-old Brit superstar parted ways with close pal and coach Ben Davison last week and appointed Javan 'SugarHill' Steward as his new trainer.

'SugarHill,' who is the nephew of the legendary Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward, has insisted that the 'Gypsy King' must be "busier in this fight and more accurate."

But Fury's trainer refused to overlook the feared punching power of Wilder and said the Brit must constantly remain "alert" in the rematch.

He told World Boxing News: "I'm excited about it. Tyson has to be busier in this fight and more accurate. That's pretty much it.

"The last time it was a close fight. I have to wait until we get to training camp. To see if there are other things that need to be worked on.

"But I like to fine-tune my guys and make sure they're very technically sound. We go from there.

"Right now, Tyson just has to be busier. And for one thing, be alert. He's gotta be VERY, VERY ALERT."

Wilder last fought in November in his rematch with Luis Ortiz and successfully defended the WBC championship.

The 34-year-old WBC kingpin was heavily outboxed for the first six rounds of the bout in Las Vegas, but he managed to connect with a devastating KO punch in the seventh round.

'SugarHill' believes that Wilder is "one of the most dangerous men in boxing history."

He explained: "Deontay Wilder is a very dangerous guy. He's very dangerous.

"We saw that first-hand in the first fight with Tyson Fury and the other 40 or something opponents that Deontay Wilder has faced.

"He's one of the most dangerous men in boxing history."

Fury, who last fought against Otto Wallin in September, was awarded a controversial draw against Wilder in their December 2018 bout.

When 'SugarHill' was asked if the 'Gypsy King' could KO Wilder, he responded: "I do, yes. It's the heavyweight division.

"Anyone can be knocked out in the heavyweight division [and] that's why it's one of the most exciting divisions."

Fury is scheduled to clash with Wilder for the WBC championship on 22nd February 2020 in Las Vegas.

An official announcement for the eagerly-awaited rematch is expected to happen before the end of 2019.
