Tyson Fury has not fought since his bout against Deontay Wilder back in February 2020. Moreover, he will go into the undisputed title fight against Anthony Joshua on the back of 18-months out of the sport. Therefore, a lot has been said about his inactivity. As a result, his trainer has now had his say and showed his desire to keep his pupil active.

The trainer spoke to My Betting Sites and revealed his plan to tackle the inactivity. He said, “I want to get old school Tyson to fight ten guys within days.” 

The American then referenced the movie Diggstown, where Louis Gossett Jr had to fight ten opponents in a few days. He added, “Let’s get Tyson to do that. Let’s put him in there for a fight a month. If he’s ready let’s give him a fight a month against the top ten guys and take on each contender. Old school boxing like Ray Robinson, they fought, then they fought three weeks later.”

Why has Tyson Fury been inactive?

With his comments, SugarHill Steward showed his unhappiness at Fury’s spell away from the squared circle. So why is Tyson Fury going into the fight with Joshua after an 18-month absence from the ring?

After his victory over ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in February, Fury wanted to defend his belt in mid-2020. However, with the COVID-19 shutdown, he could not return to the ring. Despite this, his team targeted a return for him in December and planned a UK homecoming.

However, that bout fell through for several reasons, and he didn’t fight in December. As the ‘AJ’ rumors garnered attention, Fury could not compete early in the year as he wouldn’t be ready for a fight in June.

However, the WBC champion has stated his inactivity will not affect him, and he will still beat Anthony Joshua. Thus, unlike SugarHill, Fury doesn’t seem to be bothered by the downtime.

What do you make of these comments from SugarHill Steward? Do you think Tyson Fury could beat all the contenders in a few months?
