Newly Uncovered Footage Shows What Tyson Fury's Trainer Said To Him In The Corner Against Deontay Wilder

Fascinating footage from Saturday's big fight...

Ben Davison faced his fair share of doubters when he took over affairs in the corner of Tyson Fury eighteen months ago with the inactive lineal heavyweight champ having ten stone to shift to even get back into fighting shape, let alone step foot inside the squared circle once more.

The 25-year-old Davison is uncommonly young for a trainer at world level and Fury’s cutting of professional ties with his uncle and trainer Peter to put his faithfully in Davison was seen as a bold decision.

Having guided ‘The Gypsy King’ back to fitness and to what seemed to be a victory against the WBC champion Deontay Wilder on his return, he’s proved those detractors wrong and, surely, put himself right in the mix for the Ring Magazine Trainer of the Year title.

Davison seemed deathly calm throughout the twelve rounds in the Staples Centre, despite all the chaos swirling around him, and a clip of his corner work has been circulated and shows just how well he dovetailed with his fighter on the night.

The clip, from the end of the third round, shows Fury looking up to Davison like a son to his father and asking, ‘“I’m boxing well, aren’t I?”

“You’re boxing beautifully,” Davison assured Fury, before continuing to advise his fighter on the best path to victory.

Davison was as devastated as anyone with the judges’ decision on the night, saying after the fight: “You have got to be a sick, sick man to do that. A sick, sick man.”
