Who is Sugar Hill is one of the questions on the lips of many as sports enthusiasts around the world look forward to the rematch of the boxing bout between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
Everyeveryng gathered that Steward, formerly known as Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill, is the nephew of one of boxing’s most excellent trainers, Emanuel ‘Manny’ Steward.
He changed his name officially in the year 2019, explaining that Manny was a father to him.
SugarHill grew up around Steward’s famous Kronk Gym in Detroit and witnessed him training many iconic champions through the years, most notably Tommy Hearns.
Manny also coached top heavyweights such as Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, and Wladimir Klitschko.
While the original Kronk facility is now gone, with Emanuel Steward having also passed, SugarHill intends to continue the legacy.
Why Fury Appointed Sugar Hill
Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren explained to newsmen, “When he appointed Ben, everyone said, ‘Who is Ben Davison?’ But he’s a scholar of boxing, he’s very astute and knows the sport very well. At the time, it was the best thing for him.
“Ben trained him; he lived with him and helped him as a friend. And he was the man for the time. Tyson has now got a new trainer on board who probably has more experience than Ben, and he has done that for a reason.
He said, ”I was very disappointed that they split, but Tyson and Ben parted on good terms, and that is all that matters.
“What I care about now is this fight – and Tyson felt he needed to add something extra to his armory. And what I am looking at is a man who looks magnificent. We will only find out on Saturday if he made the right decision.
Sugar Hill Speaks About Fury’s Fitness
Earlier, Fury’s new trainer Javan ‘Sugarhill’ Steward, had admitted that the Gypsy King might not be 100 percent for his fight with Deontay Wilder on Saturday.
Steward has admitted that Fury has picked up some knocks during training and will carry them into the fight.
According to Steward, “Nobody comes into a fight 100 percent. So that’s just being honest.
“Every fighter, and not even fighters, in every sport. If you train hard, everybody has some kind of an injury, some nick, and that is just the truth,” Steward said.
“But they go on with it. That’s part of being a champion, that’s part of the game, the sports game.
Fury also admitted that he had suffered ankle injuries early on in his camp for this fight. Still, he insists they won’t play a part when it comes to the showdown in Las Vegas on Saturday.
He said: “Unfortunately I hurt both legs, and both ankles, in the training camp.
“But it’s not going to affect me in the fight because that was at the beginning of camp. It was an unnecessary accident, but, you know, things happen.”
The world is talking about Fury and Wilder and who
