World-renowned trainer Sugar Hill Steward has compared Tyson Fury’s new state of the art gym to the legendary Kronk Gym made famous by his uncle Manny Steward. WBC heavyweight champion Fury has set up the new gym in Morecambe, with the superb facility offering the ‘Gypsy King’ the chance to train close to home.

Sugar Hill was the mastermind behind Fury’s dominant stoppage win over Deontay Wilder earlier this year, and he’s been extremely impressed with what he’s seen at the gym after touching down in the UK. I’m here in the UK to check out Tyson Fury’s beautiful new gym. You will be amazed at the way it’s set up.
There are lots of vibrant action photos on the wall, and it’s just the way Manny would have had it done. It reminds me of his office that he had in Detroit in the 80s and 90s, so it’s a real touch of class. There’s a huge portrait of the punch that Tyson landed on Deontay Wilder, and that’s the right hand that changed the world.
Tyson’s new place is where it’s at. There is everything here. There’s the biggest punch bag I’ve ever seen in my life, and that’s what heavyweights use. There is all the artwork and memorabilia of the great nights of boxing, so it doesn’t get any better than this.
Wallin, however, had opened up a vicious gash on Fury in the third round, and the cut in question was caused by a legal punch. Yes, Wallin worsened it with some questionable tactics, including a flat-out blatant foul where he raked the laces of his glove against Fury’s cut, but the cause of the cut was a legal punch. And Fury bled and bled and bled to the point that, realistically, most fights would have been stopped, and Wallin awarded the W.
Because Fury was the A-side — by a lot. Because Fury’s rematch with Deontay Wilder, a big money fight, was on the line. Because ESPN and Top Rank have put a lot of money into Tyson Fury, and no cut was going to be the reason he was upset by the largely unknown Swede.
That, of course, is just my opinion. But what do you think? Should Fury have been stopped in that fight? Should Wallin have pulled one of the great upsets or recent memory and been awarded the win? Or was referee Tony Weeks totally right to let Fury press on as Tyson wanted to, mind you given the level of fight we’re talking about here?
