Tyson Fury’s father, John, has admitted he will take blame if his son loses to Oleksandr Usyk next month.

The Gypsy King will have something to prove in that fight, having looked unconvincing during his narrow victory over Francis Ngannou in October.

Like the rest of the boxing world, John was not impressed with Fury’s performance that night.

And the 59-year-old has now admitted he will blame his son if Fury is unable to get the better of Usyk when they meet in Saudi Arabia next month.

“If he wakes up and smells coffee, it will be a victory for Tyson. If he hasn’t done it, good luck to the other team,” he told The Daily Star via Freebets.

“The best team and best individual will win that night.

“Do I see SugarHill comparing Usyk to the rest of the team? From past performances, definitely not. Everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt.

“But if they go wrong, this is a bad place to go wrong, the heavyweight undisputed championship of the world. This is a bad place for error.

“But Tyson is so nice, his balls are so big, and he’ll just say, ‘Sod you,’ just give me a drink and let me do my thing.

“Like he did with Ngannou the last three rounds. The instructions he was getting last time were pathetic.

“At the end of the day, people can only do what they can. Tyson is efficient and if things aren’t working out in the corner, he’ll do what he does best – use his brain and do what works for him.

He added: “They have to improve it 100 percent. Anything less, well, they dropped the ball, right?

“Whether they can or not, I don’t know.

“The last time I heard it was all about this 12-week camp… they just have to start impressing me.

“They want to start next month on the 17th, and if they don’t it’s Tyson’s own fault.

“There is no one else to blame, only him. I expressed my opinion. I am not the brains of Britain, but I have been involved in this game for a long time, and you have to work, right?

“You have to have some muscles in your body, you have to be strong and you have to play a role.

“He didn’t take anything away from Francis in his last fight against Ngannou.

“He did an amazing job, better than I thought.

“But still, he trained Mike Tyson – who is an all-time great himself.”

However, Fury has defended his training strategy – and insists he has enough time left to boost his chances of victory.

“I train four or five weeks for these fights,” the 35-year-old recently admitted, having previously suggested he would train for three months.

“Please, like I trained 12 weeks for Wilder and everyone else! Four or five weeks, how much training does a guy need?

“Three or four weeks of fighting and a week of rest, it was done.

“We have been boxing all our lives since childhood, how much training do we need?

“I’m sure we won’t forget how boxing is done and it’s not a fitness competition, so I don’t think you need more than five weeks.”

Before his fight with Usyk, Fury had won 34 of 35 fights in his career.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian has won all 21 of his fights – 14 of which have come via knockout.
