Who is Tyson Fury’s trainer Javan ‘Sugarhill’ Steward, and why did the Gypsy King split from Ben Davison?

TYSON FURY is heading into his huge heavyweight rematch against Deontay Wilder.

And in his corner for the Las Vegas showdown will be a new face.

Who is Javan 'Sugarhill' Steward?

A former Detroit policeman, he is the nephew of legendary Hall of Fame trainer Emmanuel Steward.

He was announced as Tyson Fury’s new trainer just two months before the rematch against WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

Fury told the Telegraph: “The only reason I’m with Sugarhill is because I need a knockout in this fight.

“It I was looking to nick a points win, I’d have stuck with Ben.”

Why did Fury split with Ben Davison?  

He did not want to share training with Steward and resigned.

Fury told the Telegraph: “That was that, he resigned.

“I didn’t get rid of him. Ben walked away of his own accord.

“He’s got other commitments as well. He’s training Billy Joe Saunders and I’m over here for months at a time, and it’s probably worked out for the better.

“That’s the truth and I can’t say any more than the truth.”

Who else is in Fury's camp?

Andy Lee, Steward’s close friend and Fury’s cousin.

Unbeaten Limerick boxer Paddy Donovan.

Corner man Stitch Duran, whose main task is ensure Fury’s cut eyebrow from the Otto Wallin fight does not split open again.
