Tyson Fury's coach invites Justin Bieber to his camp to teach him boxing

Music star Justin Bieber has been training in boxing for a long time to prepare for a role in a film about Ukrainian boxer Dmitry Salita. The film’s screenwriter Gregory Allen Howard praised Bieber’s boxing skills and encouraged him to follow in Jake Paul’s footsteps and try his hand at professional wrestling.

Bieber has not fought in boxing so far, both amateur and professional, although on one occasion he challenged movie star Tom Cruise to an MMA match. Fury coach SugarHill Steward told Betway he would coach Bieber just as his uncle Emanuel Steward coached Eminem at the time.

"I would definitely have Justin Bieber in camp because Emanuel [Steward] was teaching Eminem so it's no different. I like to teach and it doesn't matter who I teach at this point. I just like teaching, I enjoy it," Steward told Betway.

"I would be very open to not only teaching Justin Bieber how to box but teaching him how to knock guys out. I think he'd get on well [in the gym]. He's a successful entertainer so he's worked hard to get to this point.

So being in camp would not be anything less than he's been doing his whole life. In my training camp we also have fun. It's a family-oriented gym," the coach said. Steward also commented on potential sparring matches with boxers at his campground, including with Tyson Fury.

"I don't know about Tyson Fury but I've got some other world champions Bieber can get in there with. Definitely, Bieber can learn something from being in the ring and sparring with champions," Steward said.

The singer would have the opportunity to train alongside real-world champions. "That's something we've always done growing up... we've had world champions boxing with pure novices, doesn't matter. It's not about beating them up, it's about teaching them and at the same time the champion can work on something himself," Steward said.
