Tyson Fury’s coach Ben Davison defended the decision of his number one guy – Tyson Fury not to fight the WBC champ Deontay Wilder in one of the most heavily anticipated rematches in the history of boxing.
The two met back in December 2018 when Fury outclassed his American rival, but the fight ended up in a draw.
A month ago the negotiations between Frank Warren and Shelly Finkel were at the end, but then the 30-year-old Brit took his talent to ESPN and the rematch collapsed. This past week Fury announced that he’ll be fighting Germany’s Tom Schwarz in the US and he got a lot of heat from the public for this move, but his trainer believes he did the right move.
“Tyson’s shown that he’ll always step up to the mark and take the risk. He went to Klitschko’s back yard, he went to Wilder’s back yard,” he told iFLTV.
“Who else has done that out of Joshua and Wilder? Nobody. When you discuss with them about coming to us, the conversation goes dead. Hopefully, we can get those fights made,” Davison said.
“At the end of the day, they were trying to negotiate with Wilder’s team, it didn’t look like we were gonna be able to get them on our platform right away so we couldn’t afford to sit still.”
