Tyson Fury’s Ex-Trainer Dispels Glove Conspiracy Debate Once And For All By Releasing New Videos

Tyson Fury’s Ex-Trainer Dispels Glove Conspiracy Debate Once And For All By Releasing New Videos

Tyson Fury's former trainer has launched a staunch defence over claims that his gloves were tampered with for the first Deontay Wilder clash.

The 31-year-old Brit superstar secured a controversial draw against his fierce rival in their 2018 blockbuster fight, despite heavily outboxing the former WBC champ.

That didn't stop videos from emerging after the fight that alleged that Fury's gloves weren't properly secured and he could slide his hands down.

And accusations were hurled that the so-called 'advantage' allowed the new WBC champ to throw hooks with his bare fists.

Ben Davison, who was in Fury's corner for the first Wilder fight, has now posted multiple videos on social media to end the debate once and for all.

Fury's former trainer tweeted: "I just gonna put [an] end to this nonsense. Here's a video of tyson getting gloves up Including inspectors and wilders trainer Jay Deas.

"Here's tyson throwing a 'straight jab' warming up landing with the end of the glove which some loonatics seem to beleive [sic] was empty.

"Here's tyson throwing some 'throw away' or 'flicking' or 'occupying' jabs in which he doesn't stiffen the wrist on trajectory, before throwing some straight 1-2s."

But Davison, who remains close with his former fighter, recently broke down why Fury's camp couldn't have tampered with his gloves and why it wouldn't benefit him.

"The opposite team are watching him tie his gloves. How can he tie his gloves, get it taped up, pull his hand back out, put it in the middle [of the glove] and redo it? It's madness," he said.

"It's the way Tyson throws shots because he throws what are called throwaway shots, so sometimes he'll throw a punch at you that he's not intending to hit you with or intending to do damage with to make you look here or think about this.

"Sometimes he may throw with an open hand, flick it out to make you think about this, occupy you with something to hit you somewhere else."

Fury put on a masterclass performance against his fierce rival last month and stripped Wilder of the WBC championship.

But the Brit was once again accused of glove tampering in his blockbuster rematch in Las Vegas.

Jacob 'Stitch' Duran, who is Fury's cutman, has also brushed aside allegations over his fighter's gloves.
