SUGARHILL Steward has responded to John Fury's claim that he should be SACKED from being his son Tyson's coach.

Tyson was pictured reuniting with Sugarhill in March, a month before he was due to fight Oleksandr Usyk.

But when the title unification collapsed, the cornerman instead claimed he was in England solely for Lawrence Okolie's bout.

The comments infuriated Tyson's dad John, who toldtold Metro, via "Tyson knows my opinion and that is all those people wrapped around him want sacking. The full lot.

"If they talk about loyalty, that’s not loyalty as far as I’m concerned. If you are stood by your man, shoulder to shoulder, you take it all.

"You’re not going to pass the blame or distance yourself from him. Tyson is my son and I will stand with him until the day I die.

"That thing with SugarHill the other day, what the hell was that about? 'I’m only here for Okolie'. What was he talking about?

"When I have seen him training Tyson, he was living in Tyson’s house, he had his missus there, he was using the gym and I have seen him working Tyson out.

"And all of a sudden denied him like Judas Iscariot denied Jesus Christ? What the hell was going on there?

"For me, that is a sacking offence. He will be down the road for that charade. It was upsetting.

"Tyson just falls in love with these people and finds out they are not who they seem to be. It is all about pound signs and he has put SugarHill where is.

"He give these guys a chance like the others he has put around him and it has ended in tears. Get rid of them, clear the board. How does the heavyweight champion need all this?

"It would be easier if he did it all himself and he has got capable people around him to help him do it. Not just me. With sound people around him we can make the right decisions and get on with it.

"Get rid of them all. They all want to be his best mate but as soon as things get a bit sticky and he gets a few bad comments, people want to distance themselves from him."

Despite the lengthy rant, Sugarhill Steward claimed to Boxing News that he was unaware of John's comments.

He said: "I don’t know anything about that."

Asked if he has spoken to John, Steward replied: "No, I’ll speak to John when I see him but I haven’t spoke to him or heard anything about that until now.

"So I guess for me to comment.. as you know I don’t listen to everything that’s written and said.

"I believe if it was a problem then he would talk to me because we have each other’s phone numbers.

"I’ll just leave it at that, I don’t know what else to say because the more you start talking the more it’s back and forth, ‘He said, she said’.

"I have his number and he has my number so if something was to be said to each other me and him both know how to pick up the phone and talk to each other."
