Boxing: Tyson Fury to announce Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill as new trainer

Tyson Fury will name American Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill as his new trainer for the up-coming rematch with Deontay Wilder claim reports after split with Ben Davison.

The news that Fury split with his trainer on Sunday came as a shock to many in the boxing world after Davison brought the former undisputed champion back from the brink.

The pair where side by side for Fury’s last five fights including the epic draw with reigning WBC Champion Wilder in late 2018.

Fury took to social media to announce that Hill, nephew of legendary hall of fame trainer Emmanuel Steward is set to take charge of his latest camp posting that ‘the gang is getting back together’.

Questions marks where raised after out-pointing the relatively unknown Otto Wallin in 12 rounds in September but it comes as a shock that the split happens just months before the Wilder show down.

Tyson’s father, John Fury, put Davison in the spot light after Fury came away victorious in his latest bout with Wallin however Fury Sr was less than supportive of the win.

“I’ve never seen him as bad.” Fury Sr told TalkSport.

“I just think he’s a very lucky chap to emerge the winner. But that’s not Tyson in there, I know that

If I had my say, the lot (coaching team) would be gone. Looking at that there, if he keeps hold of that team, they’re gonna cost him his career, I’ll say it live on TV.”

In the build up to the Wilder fight, Fury added another legendary trainer to his corner when Freddie Roach was announced to be Fury’s ‘cut man’.

The 7 time trainer of the year then publicly criticised Davison, claiming Fury’s trainer ‘cried’ when he was heavily knocked down in the final round against Wilder.

Since the recent split, Davison has come out in support of Fury insisting the two remain ‘friends’ and he expects the 6 9′ giant to ‘smash the dosser (Wilder)’.

The split from Davison ends of one of the most remarkable comebacks not just in boxing but in sport, as the ‘rookie’ trainer helped Tyson shed over 10 stone and come back from a series of mental, drug and alcohol problems.

Davison reportedly moved in with Fury back in 2017 and oversaw a complete turn around in the fighters life which saw him back fighting for the heavyweight title just 6 months after returning back to the ring.

The ‘Gyspy King’ has had previous experience training at the famous Kronk Gym in Detroit when he trained briefly under under the late Emmanuel Stewart in 2010.

He is no stranger to fighting ‘across the pond’ with the Wilder rematch set to be his fifth fight in America, with his last two fights in Las Vegas.
