Tyson Fury will ‘walk all over Oleksandr Usyk’ but only if he has dad John in his corner, claims Derek Chisora


DEREK CHISORA has claimed the key to Tyson Fury’s success against Oleksandr Usyk is the influence of his father John.

Fury and Usyk square off in the heavyweight division’s first-ever four-belt unification bout on May 18 in Saudi Arabia.

And the Gypsy King is busy getting himself into fighting shape, starting out his camp in his hometown of Morecambe.

Recently, Fury has posted videos on social media hitting the pads with his dad John, a former professional boxer and bare-knuckle fighter.

And Chisora – three times beaten by the WBC champion – believes John is the right man to lead his son to victory over Usyk.

He told SecondsOut: “Tyson looks good. I see his dad holding his pads for him.

“What people don’t understand is a father and a son’s bond when they train with each other; it’s unbelievable.

“It’s what people don’t understand, if Tyson has his dad in his corner, he’ll walk over Usyk easily because he has his dad in his corner.

“That’s it, bro. It’s going to be a great fight.”

Dad John has admitted he could not be more proud of his champ son Tyson or Tommy and Roman, both unbeaten pro boxers as well.

But a previous criminal conviction has always prohibited him from watching or cornering his sons in America.

Although more recently, Fury has been fighting in Saudi allowing John to be by his side.

His last bout was a controversial split-decision win over MMA superstar Francis Ngannou, who even scored a shock knockdown.

Now Fury, 35, faces Usyk, 37, for the undisputed crown in Riyadh and Chisora wants John to replace Sugarhill Steward as head coach.

Chisora, 40, said: “He should be. His dad knows fighting. His dad grew up his whole life watching fights and fighting himself.

“So I think his dad should be his main trainer at the same time his son will help. The way he’s looking with his dad on the pads, he looks great.”
