Fury Reunites With KRONK Training Team
While Ben Davison played a huge role in his comeback, Tyson Fury has decided to return to his roots for his chance to regain his status as a world heavyweight champion.
Tyson Fury announced on social media that he will reunite with Sugarhill Steward, who will act as his lead trainer as Fury prepares for his February fight against Deontay Wilder for the WBC world heavyweight championship.
“Getting the old team back up and running,” Fury said on Twitter, bringing him back to the team he began his journey with at the beginning of the decade.
The partnership comes days after Fury parted ways with young trainer Ben Davison, who was integral in getting Fury back into shape for a 2018 comeback that featured his classic draw against Wilder inside Staples Center.
“Obviously it’s not gonna stop until there’s an answer,” Davison noted on social media. “Tyson and myself had to both make decisions for our careers, which resulted in our working relationship coming to an end.
“HOWEVER, we remain friends and he will SMASH the DOSSER.”
Fury trained for a brief period under the watchful eye of the late Emanuel Steward over nine-years ago at the legendary KRONK Gym in Detroit, Michigan, which his cousin the then-unbeaten Andy Lee trained on the road to winning a middleweight world title.
