Wow 😳 Thoughts on John Fury's comments? 🤔👇 Tyson Fury's father John has launched an astonishing attack on his son & his training team, after Fury overcame a horrific cut sustained early in the fight to beat Otto Wallin via unanimous decision in a thrilling Las Vegas bloodbath.
However, John criticised the performance regardless and stated on the BT Sport broadcast: “I’ve never seen him as bad. He looked weight-drained, he looked like he’d left it all in the gym to be honest with you. From the second round on there was no snap, there was no real movement, there was no real thought going into his work. It was just a laboured performance, and then the good happened, he’s a lucky man to get the win to be honest. With a cut as bad as that, what was it, the 3rd round? I don’t know how he got to the 12th. But that’s not Tyson in there, I know that. Whatever’s gone wrong in that camp, which it has gone wrong, somebody’s to blame and he just to me looked like he didn’t have any strength from the off. His timing was off, his distance was terrible, he didn’t look for the body. I’m being honest about it, he’s my son, I’m a straight talker, that’s the worst I’ve seen my son. But what I can say? I’m very proud of the way he mauled his way through it, he showed world class heart and he will come again. That wasn’t Tyson, he was as weak as a kitten from the 1st round. I’ve warned him and warned him about this, he’s not an 18 stone fighter anymore. He’s 31 years old, he’s matured, his body’s grown, accept that you’re 19 stone. If I had my say, the lot (the training team) would be gone. Looking at that there, if he keeps hold of that team, they’re gonna cost him his career, I’ll say it live on TV. Training is more about weight loss than strength and power, which it should be about. The team being what’s around him now, Ben Davison, whatever he’s got there in charge of the business needs to have a look in the mirror and say, ‘Not good enough at a high level.’ It’s proved it tonight.” ____________________________________________________
