SugarHill Wasn’t Training Fury As Usyk’s Wife Brands Him The ‘Gypsy Queen’
SugarHill Steward clarified that he was not involved in Tyson Fury’s training for the Oleksandr Usyk fight.
Instead, he worked with WBO cruiserweight champion Lawrence Okolie for his upcoming fight against David Light on March, 25th 2023.
The recent revelation indicates that WBC heavyweight champion Fury had no plans to fight IBF, WBA, and WBO champion Usyk on April 29th, 2023.
The reason behind Fury’s offer of a 70-30 split to Usyk, which was not very favorable, and then mocking his promoter Alex Krassyuk for accepting it on social media, could be explained by the fact that Fury was not really interested in making the fight.
After all, this is what Sugar Hill had to say: “It just so happens that there have been negotiations and talks about the Usyk vs Usyk fight. Then we come to Manchester, and we’re going to go use Tyson’s gym to train, which obviously that’s where I’m going to go because that’s like home for me, and I’m comfortable there.
“Then we come down here for fight week and to continue training and preparing for this fight. I’m like the perfect storm. ‘Oh, Sugar is here now. It’s time; it’s happening.’ I’m like, ‘Tyson knows what I’m here for.’ I’m here for Lawrence. Tyson was in the gym with us, but I didn’t train Tyson.”
In response, Fury was the target of ridicule by Usyk’s spouse after the breakdown of talks for a fight with her husband.
Katerina Usyk mocked the Gypsy King by sharing a promotional poster for a fourth fight between Fury and Derek Chisora with the following comments: “This is the fight that the fans of Belly Fury are waiting for @Tysonfury.”

Following Usyk’s wife’s initial post, she shared another image of Fury in women’s clothing, referring to him as ‘The Gypsy Queen’.

And as long as the fight continues to be unsigned, that sentiment won’t change.
