Tyson Fury’s trainer Sugar Hill Steward believes the heavyweight champion could reverse his retirement plans after the clash Dillian Whyte.
The British star is currently preparing with his coach to take on an all-British challenge against Whyte at Wembley on April 23. He has vowed there will be a clash with Whyte be his last in the sport and plans to explore other professional ventures after hanging up his gloves.
However, Steward would not be surprised if his protégé retracts his plans, claiming that several people refused to believe his plans anyway. “Whatever he said at the time, that’s it,” Steward said BT sports boxing. “As you know, everyone in the world changes their mind, so it just depends on how much you or someone else thinks about what they said. Nobody believes Tyson anyway, so what difference does it make?”
Fury has hinted at a retirement since his second straight KO win Deontay Wilder in her trilogy last year. If he gets past Whyte, a huge heavyweight fight could be on the horizon against the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch against Oleksandr Usyk.
The champion has yet to face his challenger after him did not appear at the press conference due to ongoing problems between the respective camps. Fury is extremely confident on his return to Britain but Steward has warned the champion that anything can happen in heavyweight division.
“Listen, this is the heavyweight class, the most exciting class in boxing,” Steward continued. “Everyone has a chance, that’s why it’s one of the big daddy divisions because anything can happen in heavyweight. Everyone has this power, all these huge men weigh over 200 pounds.”

Fury has shown his knockout power lately since training under Steward’s regime and will be looking to score another goal despite not finalizing his game plan for the night. Steward has arrived in the UK and is working with Fury on home shores to prepare him for the Test.
Pictures of Fury surfaced also works with drug con man Jarrell Miller who was suspended from the sport after testing positive for several banned substances. He is used as a sparring partner to help the champion in his current training camp. Steward has confirmed they used several different sparring opponents to simulate Whyte’s style before their showdown.
“Knockouts are always, it’s KO time. Every fight prepares Tyson to knock someone out. We bring the right sparring to sometimes simulate the opponent but also just to give a different look. It’s not just about that to mimic a sparring partner, I don’t know.” I don’t want to delve too deep into the strategy and my wisdom, but there’s a science behind my madness.
