Tyson Fury’s family members are ‘MOLES’ in his camp for Oleksandr Usyk fight, claims Sky Sports boxing pundit


JOHNNY NELSON has sensationally claimed Tyson Fury’s own family members are the “moles” in his training camp.

Fury was due to face Oleksandr Usyk in a historic first four-belt unification bout on February 17 in Saudi Arabia.

But before he was forced out two weeks prior due to suffering a cut in sparring, his training camp was marred in controversy.

Former cruiserweight world champion-turned Sky Sports pundit Nelson even claimed Fury was getting “turned over” in sparring.

So Fury’s team were convinced there was an insider in the camp feeding back information.

Nelson has since spoken out amid allegations it is him and instead urged the Gypsy King to look closer to home.

He told talkSPORT: “Do you wanna know who the mole is? His dad and his brother – they are the mole. Because listen, I said nothing his dad hasn’t said.

“I’ve said nothing his brother hasn’t said, okay I might have sprinkled a bit of seasoning on it, but what I’m saying is it’s on record – his dad was saying the camp’s this, that and the other.

“It’s on record his brother’s said there’s too many back-slappers there.”

Dad John did say his son’s training camp was a “circus” and brother Shane slammed the perfomance in October against Francis Ngannou.


Fury, 35, only beat MMA superstar Ngannou, 37, on a controversial split-decision after being dropped by the ex-UFC champion.

Now he prepares to instead face Usyk, 37, on the rescheduled date of May 18 back in Riyadh once more.

And Nelson insisted both dad John and brother Shane are vital to keeping the maverick heavyweight grounded.

He said: “Tyson’s not an idiot, but Tyson is the head of the snake – so they’ve all got to behave themselves because they want to stay on that payroll.

“So they’re gonna tell him what they think [he wants to hear] to ingratiate themselves around him.

“His brother and his dad – they’re his [real] people and they don’t like these people that are around, and they’re not happy.

“But them people that are around are thinking, ‘I’m getting paid good, so I’m gonna tell you what you want.’

“I don’t dislike Tyson Fury, I just call out his BS, I don’t dislike him.

“Those people around him are saying, ‘Johnny Nelson this, Johnny Nelson that,’ I don’t dislike Tyson Fury because I think he’s the best heavyweight in the world.

“But you’ve got people in your ear chatting foolishness just because that fits their agenda.

“Listen to your dad, listen to your brother – they are the ones speaking the truth, they’re the moles.”
