Super Coach Confirms He's In Talks To Be Tyson Fury's Main Trainer

Super Coach Confirms He's In Talks To Be Tyson Fury's Main Trainer

Tyson Fury may have a new yet familiar face in his corner.

The 30-year-old appointed young trainer Ben Davison as his head coach upon embarking a road back to boxing.

Davison, who's only 26, guided Fury's comeback. From training a 400 lb-fighter to getting him in peak physical condition for Deontay Wilder.

A unknown commodity who nearly masterminded one of the greatest comebacks in boxing history.

Though prior to facing Wilder, Fury also hired Ricky Hatton and Freddie Roach to lead his three-man corner.

And it appears the latter could very well become Fury's main-coach ahead of potentially re-matching Wilder.

Roach, 58, has coached some of the very best fighters in the world. But his most recognisable pupil is none other than Manny Pacquiao.

When Roach was asked about taking full reigns, he said: "Possibly. The thing is, me and Tyson and his brothers spoke about it, we said let's all go home and enjoy Christmas, and we'll have a meeting in the UK or here in America with each other... and we left it at that."

"I told Tyson [initially], I said maybe I can help him along the way. He did a great job with the conditioning, the weight loss. He's only a 26-year-old kid," he said about Davison.

"If Tyson had won, I think I wouldn't be the youngest trainer to have a world champion anymore, because he's a year younger than me. When I won my first title, I was 27."

Roach also believes Fury had the ability to beat Wilder. "Yes, I do. [If he had been] more offensive. The thing is, he did hurt him a couple of times. I was disappointed he didn't get a chance to finish him.

"It was funny, we had one fighter earlier in the night, Ben [Davison] gave the exact same instructions to the 126lb fighter as he did the heavyweight fighter."
