Tyson Fury’s trainer explains multiple injuries suffered before Wilder win

Tyson Fury's trainer has revealed the new champion was carrying several injuries going into his fight with Deontay Wilder .

Fury dropped Wilder twice before the fight was stopped in the seventh round in Las Vegas last Saturday.

The beaten champion has since claimed his legs were weakened by the huge 40lb costume he wore for his ring walk.

But Fury's coach SugarHill Steward, who replaced Ben Davison late last year, has detailed the knocks his man was carrying.

"We had injuries in camp. Tyson hurt is ankles, they were all messed up – they have pictures of that – he suffered a cut in training camp," he told ESPN.

" Tyson Fury wasn't even getting hit to the head in training camp and I think at the beginning of training camp his elbow or shoulder was hurt.

"He was spotted limping at the UFC thing, so Tyson Fury's the one with all the injuries."

Fury returned to Manchester a hero on Tuesday morning following his exploits in Sin City.

He has now won each of the four major world titles following his win over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015.

But he will have to put to one side his dreams of becoming the undisputed champion after Wilder confirmed he intends to trigger the rematch clause in his contract.

Fury has been linked with an all-British fight with fellow world champion Anthony Joshua who is due to face Kubrat Pulev in London on June 20.
