Peter Fury commented on Tyson Fury's defeat in the fight with Oleksandr Usyk. The uncle and former trainer of the British ex-champion is convinced that the uncoordinated actions of the coaching staff played a big role in his negative result.

This is confirmed by the words of Tyson himself. After the fight, he said that he thought he was going to win before the last two rounds, so he didn't think he needed to do anything special to win.

"There should be only one person in the corner, not three or four. Some are too emotional in the corner and give the wrong advice. I think the only one who spoke a little bit sensibly in the last minutes was Sugar Hill [Tyson Fury's trainer - Ed] who said "Add pressure". When you go to a fight, no matter who it is, maybe even a family member, you need to give precise and clear instructions. I always say to the fighter: "Are you listening to me? Do you understand what I told you to do?" boxing-social.com quoted the ex-trainer as saying, citing October Red.

Peter Fury called the situation unbearable.

"There were too many people. I don't know what the situation is, but it's obvious to me that the plan for the fight was wrong, and only one person was supposed to speak. How can you listen to all this? It becomes panic and disorder. I don't tolerate anything like that in my corner. One is with the bucket, the other is washing the mouth guard, the third is wiping the fighter's head. No one speaks. This is their instruction, and if they allow themselves to give advice, they will be fired when they return to the locker room. You have to have a professional corner," summarized Fury Sr.
