Spencer Brown, Tyson Fury’s manager, has provided a reason for Fury’s less than stellar performance against Francis Ngannou in October.

Spencer Brown has provided a reason for Fury’s performance against Francis Ngannou in October, despite Fury’s reluctance to discuss challenges faced during the fight’s preparation.

In a surprising turn during the third round, Fury was knocked down by Ngannou, a newcomer to boxing, creating a stir worldwide. Nonetheless, Ngannou’s efforts fell short of delivering Fury his first professional loss, with Fury narrowly winning by split decision.

The WBC champion has acknowledged there were factors behind his atypical showing but chose not to elaborate, aiming not to undermine his opponent’s efforts.

During a conversation with Boxing King Media, Spencer Brown disclosed that the 35-year-old Fury struggled with insomnia before the match.

“I’ll tell you the reason now, this is an exclusive – he never slept, for three days on the spin. That was the reason for the bad performance, you can take that how you want but I was there, and I saw it all,” he said.

“He couldn’t sleep. We have cured that now because we have gone to a new camp and it’s wonderful, marvellous, you can sleep as much as you want.”

This isn’t the first instance of sleep issues being blamed for a fighter’s performance this year. Ohara Davies attributed his loss to Ismael Barroso to the high levels of oxygen in Las Vegas’ hotels and casinos, which is believed to keep guests awake and gambling.

Fury looks forward to a bette preparation for his upcoming fight against Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight title on May 18th. This historic showdown will also take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, similar to the bout with Ngannou.
