Tyson Fury Splits With Trainer Ben Davison Ahead Of Deontay Wilder Rematch

Tyson Fury Splits With Trainer Ben Davison Ahead Of Deontay Wilder Rematch

Tyson Fury is looking for a new trainer for his second fight with Deontay Wilder after splitting with coach Ben Davison.

Relatively inexperienced in the boxing game, Davison was instrumental in Fury's dramatic weight loss of more than 100 pounds and subsequent sensational comeback.

But ahead of the rematch with Wilder on February 22, the shock news has emerged that Fury and Davison are no longer working with one another, as per Boxing Scene.

Davison was in attendance for Wilder's recent devastating knockout victory over Luis Ortiz as he sought after scouting the WBC champion and was filmed doing pad work with Fury only a few days ago.

He won't have the opportunity to help guide the Gypsy King to world championship glory, though it's said there is no animosity between the pair.

Trainer Freddie Roach, famous for working with Amir Khan, Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto, was in Fury's corner for the first Wilder bout and was highly critical of Davison's tactics despite the 31-year old's impressive performance in Los Angeles.

Roach is not thought to be a candidate for the vacant trainers' position, though Fury is now "in the process of securing a deal" for a new coach.
