Nelson criticized Fury's team

Former world heavyweight champion Johnny Nelson has revealed the moles in Tyson Fury's (34-0-1, 24 KOs) team that inform the Gypsy King's preparations for a fight with Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs). The ex-boxer, who predicted last year that the Briton would refuse to fight the Ukrainian on February 17, named the Manchester native's father and brother.

Nelson said this in an interview with the talkSPORT talkBOXING program. According to Johnny, Fury's relatives did not share any secret information with him, and their public statements helped him to draw certain conclusions about Tyson's readiness.

"You want to know who the mole is? His father and his brother are the moles. I didn't say anything that John or Shane Fury didn't say. Listen to what they said, how they commented on his camp. They don't like what's going on around Tyson. But the people around Fury are saying what he wants to hear to stay on the payroll. Tyson Fury is not an idiot, but he is the head of a dragon. He needs to listen to his father and brother. They tell the truth, they are the moles," Nelson said.
