SugarHill Steward, trainer of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has unveiled the secret to defeating Derek Chisora, which he believes to be a fairly straightforward method.
Son of legendary trainer Emmanuel Steward, SugarHill has trained world champions such as Adonis Stevenson, Anthony Dirrell and Charles Martin, but his pride and joy is Tyson Fury.
He and ‘The Gypsy King’ have built up an inseparable relationship over the past couple of years as Steward has managed to keep Fury on the straight and narrow, both inside and outside of the ring.
Now, as Fury prepares for a third defence of his WBC title, Steward will be sending his man out with a clear message, he revealed in BT Sport’s in-camp documentary.
“I’ll give away the secret, it’s simplicity, which makes everything more complicated. Making everything so simple, why do anything extra? I’m always working on balance with Tyson, as with many fighters, balance is the key to all things that can happen.
It opens up so many doors, which I watch in boxing, a lot of fighters are off balance, they don’t work on the basics. They want to do a lot of fancier things, but that is not the way. The way for me is simple and it is getting the foundations and getting the basics together.”
Many fans believe the trilogy fight with Derek Chisora to be a foregone conclusion, with Fury already holding two wins over his ‘old friend’ and even admitting himself that he is repaying a favour by fighting ‘Del Boy’.
The pay-per-view price of £26.95 has further riled up fans, however the fight is at least a chance to see one of Britain’s best heavyweights in full flow.
The fight takes place on Saturday night at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and is available to purchase on BT Sport Box Office. The highlight of the undercard is British heavyweight prospect Daniel Dubois making his first defence of his WBA regular title, as he fights South Africa’s Kevin Lerena.
