Tyson Fury has began search for a new coach ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder as he splits from his coach Ben Davidson.
Davison played a huge role in Fury’s boxing comeback, helping him lose more than 100lbs and guiding him through his draw against Wilder last year.
The trainer tweeted: “Obviously it’s not gonna stop until there’s an answer, Tyson and myself had to both make decisions for our careers, which resulted in our working relationship coming to an end, HOWEVER, we remain friends and he will SMASH the DOSSER!”
The ‘Gypsy King’ is now on the hunt for a new coach ahead of the highly-anticipated second bout with Wilder, which is due to happen in February.
The decision to part company with Davison came after he received heavy criticism following Fury’s most recent fight, with Otto Wallin.
John Fury, the heavyweight’s dad lashed on Davison and called for him to be sacked following the fight.
“If I had my say, the lot 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.
“The team being what’s around him now, Ben Davison, whatever he’s got there in charge of the business needs to have a look in the mirror and say, ‘Not good enough at a high level.’ It’s proved it tonight.”
Fury had the flesh above his right eye torn open by a punch from his opponent in the third round and had to fight the rest of the bout with his vision severely impaired.
However, he made it through to the final bell and won by unanimous decision with scores of 116-112, 117-111, 118-110.
Davison has been credited with helping Fury to overcome his demons and complete his incredible return to the ring.
Fury’s issues with mental health have reportedly been well documented over the last couple of years, with the 31-year-old making a remarkable recovery after a dark period of his life.
Following his win over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, he slipped into a state of depression which led him into gaining weight and tried to take his life.
He has since returned to draw with WBC champion Wilder, although many thought Fury won the fight, and the pair are due to fight again on February 22.
