Tyson Fury’s new trainer SugarHill Steward is confident the former world champion can knock out Deontay Wilder.

Fury and Wilder will lock horns again after their first fight ended with a controversial draw.

“That was a risk that Tyson took in the first fight in not stepping on the gas and trying to win on points,” he told iFL TV. “He doesn’t want that again. I don’t want it. I wasn’t raised that way. Emanuel [Steward] always taught me, ‘Get the knockout’.

“That’s the only 100 per cent way you know you won the fight by taking it out of the hands of the judges.  I thought Tyson did enough to win the fight, even though he was knocked down twice. I’m not mad at the decision because I was always taught, ‘Don’t leave it in the hands of the judges’.”

The fight between the “Gypsy King” and the “Bronze Bomber” will take place on February 22 in Las Vegas.
