Tyson Fury's trainer SugarHill Steward flies to UK and links up with Gypsy King for Oleksandr Usyk training camp | The Sun
SUGARHILL STEWARD has jetted into the UK to link up with Tyson Fury for his fight camp ahead of the clash with Oleksandr Usyk.
The Gypsy King, who holds the WBC title, has vowed to end his reign of online terror by going on a social media blackout after declaring that the unification bout is ON.
The unbeaten champions have been going back and forth on Instagram, seemingly negotiating their title unification in the open.
And Usyk's team believe they have called Fury's bluff by accepting his "greedy" offer of 70/30 to fight on April 29 at Wembley.
The Ukrainian's camp even doubt whether the undisputed title decider will go ahead as the clock ticks on.
But Fury, 34, has attempted to ease up on Usyk, 36, and cool concerns as he promised to focus solely on training and not trash-talking.

The Kronk gym mastermind – who turned the WBC champ from a cautious jab-and-mover to a Gypsy KO King – is now running the six-week plan for undisputed glory.
Steward arrived in the UK on Thursday from Florida, where he has been training Hackney’s WBO cruiserweight champ Lawrence Okolie.
The 30-year-old defends his crown on March 25 in Manchester so Steward will have a busy month in England.
Fury has previously let American Steward, who is a former Detroit police officer and the nephew of legendary boxing trainer Emanuel Steward, stay in his Las Vegas mansion RENT-FREE.
Fury previously revealed how he hired Steward, the mastermind of Detroit’s notorious Kronk Gym, to help reinvent himself.
He said: “When I brought Sugar in for the last few fights, he made me feel like a rank novice.
“He made me feel like a piece of s***. He made me feel a terrible boxer. He took the undefeated lineal heavyweight champion of the world and made me feel like a bum — like I had never had a fight in my life.
“He’s the only man in the world who could ever have done it. It takes a special mentality to strip it all back to basics and start again.”
