A penny for Ben Davison’s thoughts when Tyson Fury returns to the corner at the end of the first round on December 1 at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and the young trainer catches a glimpse of Freddie Roach crouching by the ring post.

If there wasn’t enough pressure on him already, Davison, the man partly responsible for getting Fury back to somewhere near his best, will now be joined by legendary trainer Roach the night Fury attempts to snatch the WBC world heavyweight title from Deontay Wilder.

Roach, head honcho at LA’s Wild Card gym, confirmed his participation to Sports Illustrated, having been asked by Tyson if he could fulfil the role of cut man on December 1.
