TYSON FURY’S trainer Ben Davison just wants fight week to be over.
The endless interview requests. The cameras in his face. The criticism from those who believe he will not be able to cope under the pressure. Not only for him, but for the “Gypsy King”, who challenges WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on Saturday night.
Davison, who turned 26 this week, was a surprise choice to take over from Peter Fury when Tyson announced his return earlier this year. Unproven as a coach at world class level he might be, but Davison has already achieved a miracle by guiding Fury back to fitness. Yet his inexperience has led many observers to question if he can cope with what lies ahead.
