Tyson Fury has revealed his reason for doing away with his now former trainer Ben Davison ahead of his rematch with WBC champion Deontay Wilder.
The Gypsy King parted ways with Davison early in December before acquiring the services of Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill Steward.
‘‘I was going a little bit stale, repetitive, doing the same things day in, day out for years,” Fury explained, “I needed a change.’’
Davison was credited with playing a major role in Fury’s return from the brink. Fury battled with depression, swelled to 28st and spent two years out of the ring before making his comeback 18 months ago.
Hill will now be the man tailoring Fury’s gameplan when he locks horns with Wilder in a rematch scheduled for February 22.
The Briton believes his footwork skills will be his unique advantage against the Bronze Bomber at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in 56 days.
