John Fury rages at Tyson Fury training camp ‘circus’ before Usyk mega fight

John Fury has branded his son Tyson Fury's pre-Oleksandr Usyk bout training camp as a "circus".

Come February 17, Saudi Arabia will play host to the blockbuster heavyweight boxing bout between Fury and Usyk, which boxing fans have been dying to see for years. And when the two finally face off, it will see the WBC, WBA, WBO and IBF belts unified, making the winner the undisputed heavyweight champion.

However, while plenty are excited about the upcoming fight, eyebrows were raised back in October when Fury narrowly escaped his fight against UFC star Francis Ngannou, who looked to have the 35-year-old beaten when he floored him in stunning fashion.

Fury came through to win the bout, in what was Ngannou's boxing debut, via split decision, but it has led to concerns about how the Gypsy King will fare when he takes on Usyk come February. And those concerns might just have been elevated even further after John Fury's recent statements about his son's training camp.

While Fury Snr reckons his son is not "in decline", he has admitted he is worried because of the "circus" surrounding his training camp in the build up to the fight against Usyk.

Speaking to Second Out, Fury said: "I never said my son [Tyson Fury] was in decline because he's not. It's the people around him who ain't up to much. His training's in decline and his camp's in a bigger decline. It's not a camp, it's a circus.
