Fury Leaves His Trainer Ahead of Rematch with Wilder in 2020

by Stevan Plavšić

Tyson Fury has departed with his trainer Ben Davison and has already begun searching for a replacement ahead of his title rematch against Deontay Wilder in February, 2020.

Davison helped Fury a lot

Fury has overcome problems with drugs and alcohol, as well as mental health issues – all that with the help of Ben Davison. Not to mention, losing 100Ibs and ultimately helping him return to the ring in 2017.

“Obviously it’s not gonna stop until there’s an answer, Tyson and myself had to both make decisions for our careers, which resulted in our working relationship coming to an end, HOWEVER, we remain friends and he will SMASH the DOSSER!!,” Davison wrote on Twitter.

According to reports, “Gypsy King” is now looking for a veteran trainer. Freddie Roach will not be in the running, though, despite being involved in Fury’s training camp in his preparations for the first fight with Wilder.

The highly anticipated rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is set for February 22, 2020, according to promoter Bob Arum. Their first match in 2018 ended in a 12-round split decision draw, leaving Wilder as WBC champion.

In the meantime, the 31-year old remained undefeated. He won by TKO against Tom Schwarz in June 2019 and defeated Otto Wallin by UD in September. “Gypsy King” also found the time to debut in WWE. Most recently, he challenged Brock Lesnar to fight, saying he’ll ‘flatten’ him.
