Tyson Fury’s new training team for Deontay Wilder rematch

Tyson Fury made a bold decision late last year to ditch trainer and friend Ben Davison just two months before the biggest fight of his career.

Fury decided he needed more experience in his team but Davison was unwilling to play a smaller role in the build-up to the heavyweight's rematch with Deontay Wilder .

In stepped SugarHill Steward, nephew of the late, great Emanuel, who Fury is confident has primed him to knock Wilder out in Las Vegas.

But Steward is not the only addition to the Traveller's team, and here we take a look at who makes up his supporting cast.

SugarHill Steward

A graduate of the famous Kronk gym in Detroit, the nephew of the man who trained Wladimir Klitschko was Fury's first choice for his new trainer.

Fury spent several weeks at the Kronk while Klitschko reigned as heavyweight world champion and the gym clearly left a mark on him.

The Brit insists he does not want to rely on the judges again after being denied victory in 2018 when his first fight with Wilder was scored a draw.

Fury turned to Steward who he claims has helped him sit down on his punches in a bid to secure a knockout tonight.

Andy Lee

Another of Emanuel's graduates, former middleweight world champion Lee is a trainer in his own right and has been assisting Fury in this camp.

He takes the place of fellow former champion Ricky Hatton who had been part of Fury's team alongside Davison.

Lee has spoken about being a bridge between Fury and Davison in a bid to bring the former trainer back into the fold, but that has not materialised.
