According to The Sun, veteran trainer SugarHill Steward has arrived in the UK to start training WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. This is the first time the two are training together since the coronavirus pandemic erupted in March. Fury is getting ready for a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder, which is targeted to take place on the tentative date of December 19th in Las Vegas.

Fury and Wilder collided in a rematch back in February at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand. After fighting to a controversial twelve round split draw in December of 2018, Fury captured the WBC title when he dropped Wilder twice and eventually stopped in the seventh round of their second bout. Wilder had an immediate rematch clause, which he exercised in the aftermath.
SugarHill, the nephew of Hall of Fame trainer Emmanuel Steward, replaced Fury’s trainer Ben Davison just two months before the rematch with Wilder was scheduled to take place. Davison had prepared Fury for the first five fights of his comeback, which began to take shape in late 2017. His departure was shocking to observers, but the pairing with Steward has worked out so far.
Very little has been heard from Wilder in the last eight months. He suffered his first career defeat back in February, when Tyson Fury stopped him in the seventh round of their rematch to capture the WBC title. Wilder would then exercise an immediate rematch clause, to force the trilogy encounter. The third fight is scheduled to take place on the tentative date of December 19.
Unbeaten contender Junior Fa, who helped prepare Wilder for that rematch, recently revealed that the bicep injury was suffered at the tail-end of the training camp. Akpejiori expects a different Wilder in the third fight. Based on what I know, the only person that can beat Deontay right now, is Deontay, Akpejiori told Sky Sports.
He will beat Fury if he sticks to the game plan from his coaching staff, and I know that he has all the physical tools. Right now he is in amazing physical shape, that I can tell you for sure. You will see a completely different Deontay, mentally and physically in the ring, when that bell rings again for that third fight. That I can tell you.
You’re going to have to wait for Deontay to break it down and address those rumors. Listen, I can tell you from my conversations with Deontay that he was ready to fight Tyson Fury in July. The only reason why he didn’t fight Tyson Fury in July, was because the fight was moved due to the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown that came after that. He does the same workouts that we’ve been doing. I don’t know how somebody can be injured and do all that. It’s really hard stuff, I can tell you that for sure.
