Ben Davison Responds To Tyson Fury’s Father Demanding His Son Sack Corner Team After Wallin Fight
| Last updated
Ben Davison has swiftly responded to Tyson Fury's father after he launched a scathing attack on his son's corner team and called for them to be sacked.
The 'Gypsy King,' 31, pulled off a hard-fought victory against little-known Otto Wallin on Saturday in Las Vegas, despite initial concerns that the bout would end due to a deep cut he suffered in the third round.
And Davison, who is Fury's trainer, took to social media to respond to John Fury's brutal criticism of his son's corner team.
He tweeted: "[Fury's] had a tough fight which clearly won, after being cut terribly not only 1 but 2 cuts. Sometimes you can't win."

John was ruthless in his criticism of the fight and told BT Sport that it was the "worst I've seen from Tyson."
He continued: "I'm proud of how he has mauled his way through, but he has to be honest and say things are not right.
"For a man to be in that condition after eight weeks [in] camp -- it looked like he had nothing after round two.
"His strength and power went tonight, he was as weak as a kitten from the first round. At 18 stone one, I've warned him and warned him. He is a 19-stone fighter.
"If I had my way, the lot [Tyson's corner] would be gone. If they keep that team, that will be his career.
"There was no snap to the punches, he lost his shape, the power was not there, his feet were coming together, it was an untidy effort.
"His will to win is unprecedented, but he made hard work of it from the off. How does a man like Otto Wallin, with limited ability, get that close with a piercing jab?
"An injury like that could finish a career, he might need surgery on that."
A bloodied Fury avoided an early scare against Wallin to maintain his unbeaten record and keep him on the path towards a rematch with Deontay Wilder.
The undefeated superstar Brit, who was continuously checked on by the ringside doctor for his injury, managed to put on a stellar performance as he picked up a unanimous 116-112 117-111 118-110 points victory.
Fury, who was praised by fellow Brit David Haye ahead of the Wallin bout, said that getting caught on the eye "changed the [complexion of the] fight."
He continued: "For the majority, I could not see out of the eye, then there was a clash of heads and I got cut again.
"It was a good 12 rounds, he was tough. It's all heart and determination -- if I can keep going I will do.
"He was 20-0 and didn't know how to lose, but I was the better man."
