Let’s get ready to rhumba! Fury’s in top shape

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT - BOX­ING

TYSON Fury’s new trainer Sugar Hill Ste­ward be­lieves the Manch­ester fighter’s danc­ing feet will see him claim the WBC ti­tle from Deon­tay Wilder.

The two un­beaten heavy­weights clash in Las Ve­gas on Fe­bru­ary in a re­peat of their con­tro­ver­sial draw, which many thought Fury won de­spite be­ing floored twice.

Since then, Fury has changed trainer, split­ting from Ben Dav­i­son and link­ing up with Ste­ward and pal Andy Lee.

And Ste­ward has been so im­pressed with Fury, he has com­pared his fighter with bas­ket­ball leg­end LeBron James.

Ste­ward told MTK Global: “Tyson loves to dance. He’s very cre­ative. He’s so ath­letic and co­or­di­nated for such a big man.

“He’s like LeBron James!

“You can group An­thony Joshua and Deon­tay Wilder be­ing one-punch guys.

“They don’t have some of the other things Tyson does, but Tyson can also get you out there with one punch. Tyson has char­ac­ter and charisma and that strong de­sire to win.

“This is go­ing to be a huge year for Tyson. I want him to be undis­puted heavy­weight cham­pion.

“I’m not a big talker, re­ally. Me and Tyson are on the same page. We speak about things we’re go­ing to work on. We’re in agree­ment.

“We’re sat­is­fied and I think he can do the job. It’s a per­fect com­bi­na­tion.

“All this pos­i­tive en­ergy is go­ing to put us in the right place.”
