Steward: I Don't Want a Decision, Fury Doesn't Want a Decision

As previously reported, heavyweight contender Tyson Fury will be looking for a knockout victory on Saturday night, when he faces WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in a rematch.

The first bout, which took place in December 2018 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, ended in a controversial twelve round split draw.

To get that knockout, Fury made an unexpected decision to drop head trainer Ben Davison. And Fury then hired American trainer SugarHill Steward.

Steward states that Fury made a mistake by not going in a second gear in the later rounds when he faced Wilder the first time around.

In the rematch, Steward trained Fury with a single purpose - to knock Wilder out in order to avoid the contest reaching the judges.

"That was a risk that Tyson took in the first fight in not stepping on the gas and trying to win on points. He doesn't want that again. I don't want it. I wasn't raised that way. Emanuel [Steward] always taught me, 'get the knockout.' That's the only 100 percent way you know you won the fight by taking it out of the hands of the judges," Steward told IFL TV.

"I thought Tyson did enough to win the fight, even though he was knocked down twice. I'm not mad at the decision because I was always taught, 'don't leave it in the hands of the judges'."

According to reports in the UK, Wilder has taken over as the slight favorite to win with the oddsmakers. Fury had been the favorite since the rematch was announced, but there have been rumors circulating that the "Gypsy King' has had issues in training camp. Fury and his handlers have denied those rumors.

That strategy for historical Kronk trainers has backfired in the past, especially against aggressive fighters looking for the knock out also. We shall see what happens Saturday night IF that is the strategy for Fury and if it works against…
