TYSON FURY defends his WBC heavyweight title for the first time this weekend when he faces Deontay Wilder in their eagerly-awaited trilogy bout.
Despite not fighting since dethroning the Bronze Bomber in February 2020, the 33-year-old has insisted he is '30 or 40 per cent' better this time around.
Fury has made America his second home with the Gypsy King preparing for his fifth consecutive dust-up in the States.
And it will be the fourth time in a row that the unbeaten Mancunian will be headlining in Las Vegas.
Ahead of his third meeting with Wilder, his promotional company Top Rank has released a picture of Fury with his 11-man team.
Here SunSport takes a look at his team from left to right.
George Lockhart – Chef
The cooking mastermind behind Fury’s 10st weight loss and continued commitment to calorie counting.
The American flies over to Fury’s Morecambe home to take care of all his meals in camp.
And the kitchen genius even knows how to sneak fruits and vegetables into every meal as the 6ft 9in Fury cannot stand them.
BETTING SPECIAL: GET 30/1 ON FURY OR 50/1 ON WILDER FOR HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING CLASH
Jorge Capetillo – Cutman
The boxing mastermind was in Fury’s corner for the night he boxed Otto Wallin and had his eye split open.
Capetillo worked wonders on the 47-stitch gash and remains a close ally for Fury every time he visits Sin City.
Kristian Blacklock – Strength and Conditioning coach
The strength and conditioning genius is another crucial part of Team Fury who eschews the limelight as much as possible.
Fury trusts no one but this man to whip him into shape for sensational nights and the fitness whizz has never yet let him down.
Hughie Fury – Brother
Tyson’s little brother has lost a huge amount of weight in recent months and now joins his sibling on most of his gruelling runs around Morecambe and Las Vegas.
Big Shane Fury – Brother
Because dad Big John Fury is blocked from visiting the US and heading up the camp, Shane is his lieutenant running the show.
Tyson’s giant little bro is in charge of making sure the champ never catches Covid for a third time and runs his camp day-to-day.
Tommy Fury – Brother
The gorgeous Love Island celeb is grafting away at his own fight career and also learning everything he can off his big bro.
Tyson even joked on Thursday that if he doesn't beat YouTube boxer Jake Paul, he will make his little bro change his name from the legendary Fury moniker.
Bob Arum – US-based Promoter
The legendary American fight maker is the chief of the Top Rank empire.
And, having worked directly with Muhammad Ali, it is no small think when he compares Tyson to the Greatest for how they talk and fight.
Brendan Corey – Personal Bodyguard
Fury’s personal bodyguard is never far away from the undefeated champ and is clearly a very trusted member of the team.
The safety specialist has refrained from any interviews so remains a bit of a mystery man.
Tim Allcock – Friend and Advisor
The friend and advisor Tyson lovingly refers to as ‘Timmy Boy’ has been a mainstay of his comeback.
Fury's team is almost exclusively a family affair but Allcock has such huge respect among the group that huge has a seminal role in all things happening around the camp.
Early on in the relationship Allcock was in charge of all camp meals and revealed to SunSport that peanut butter chicken was Tyson’s favourite.
Sugar Hill Steward – Trainer
The nephew of legendary Kronk gym trainer Emanuel Steward, Sugar has been the mastermind behind Fury’s shock transformation into a power puncher.
The Detroit ace enjoys spending time in Fury’s Morecambe home now but was so disappointed by Anthony Joshua’s performance against Oleksandr Usyk that he popped outside to BBQ some meat for the team.
Spencer Brown- Commercial Manager
The head of Goldstar promotions, the memorabilia and events mogul has earned Fury’s total trust in a short space of time.
The North Londoner is now based in Blackpool and is a close friend as well as a business partner.
