The Supreme Dream Team of Tyson Fury
Fury has changed several trainers throughout his career. One of the most influential trainers of Fury’s career has to be Ben Davison who trained Fury during his epic comeback in 2018. After Davison, Fury asked SugarHill Steward, nephew of prolific boxing trainer Emanuel Steward to help him train. Steward helped Fury during his rematch against Deontay Wilder. Fury won the bout in a dominating fashion for which a lot of credit goes to Steward. Steward has been with Fury since then and will be at Fury’s corner again for his third fight against Wilder this weekend.
