Speaking to BT Sport, John said: ‘We had a blow-up the other day.
‘He went to his girlfriend’s mother’s wedding and I told him not to go, I said, “We’re in camp, if you’re going to do that I’m out of here!”
‘I left for two days, it takes me two days to calm down because all these people don’t know nothing about the fight game.
The 22-year-old is currently unbeaten and will hope to maintain his record clean after Sunday
‘They’re reality TV people, they know nothing about where I’m coming from and it upsets me because you can only do one thing in the boxing world and that’s perfect what you train to do.
‘They don’t call it training for nowt, you can’t go for a party and then come back, it ain’t rehearsal.
‘And then you’re under the bright lights and everybody there wants to see you get knocked out and everybody’s shouting abuse you need to be on top of your game.
‘He is on top of his game, with me he is anyway, because if he didn’t want to train how I want to train I’d say “there’s the door, go through it” and I’d be out of there.’
Fury is currently unbeaten after six fights and he will be hoping to maintain his clean record after Sunday’s bout.
