Since the announcement of the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rematch, the boxers are preparing for the biggest fight of their lives. Tyson Fury gained a new trainer as well. Fury has told the media that Javan “Sugar Hill” Steward will be one of his trainers.
Tyson Fury split from his former trainer, Ben Davison last week and Hill will be the new addition to his team. Tyson Fury and his previous trainer, Ben Davison, parted on good terms. Both of them made decisions for their careers and both felt that cutting ties would be the best for them both.
Their relationship simply needed to come to an end for both parties. They will always be friends and Ben will always cheer for Tyson. Davison was given a lot of credit for assisting Fury with losing a lot of extra weight from his three-year vacation. Davison also helps Tyson Fury get into shape for the first Wilder fight.
The split-up of Tyson Fury and Ben Davison was quite a surprise people. No one expected Tyson Fury would cut ties with his trainer, especially only 10 weeks away from the rematch against Deontay Wilder.
Fury’s new trainer, Javan Steward is the nephew of legendary trainer, Emanuel Steward. Tyson Fury wanted to have a trainer with a little more technical pointers.
Davison was with Fury for the last few years and many people think he was a miracle worker as far as training Fury goes. When Davison and Fury started together, Fury was at 400 pounds. He was inactive, lazy, and suffering from some mental health problems. Davison got him into shape and weighing 260 pounds.
Davison was nominated for the trainer of the year award by The Ring. Davison was given most of the credit for Fury’s amazing transformation. No one really knew who Davison was until Tyson Fury. He would always tell people that the best thing to do for Fury’s training was to get his mind stimulated.
Davison even lived in a spare bedroom at the Fury house. This helped him train Fury the most and the best possible way. This type of training definitely worked out at that time.
Fury’s new trainer, Steward, has a new plan for the rematch with Deontay Wilder. He discussed how Fury needs to increase his accuracy and work harder when the rematch happens. Steward knows what areas Fury needs improvement on and what is going to win him the rematch and the Heavyweight title. They both are aware that Fury has to be on top of his game to win the bout.
Steward wants to make sure that Fury is fine-tuning somethings about himself and the way he fights. He is trying to keep him aware of how dangerous Wilder can be. He is one of the most dangerous fighters in boxing, therefore, they have to figure out every little detail to get Fury in the position of winning the rematch. What will February 22, 2020, bring us? Will Fury and his new trainer win the heavyweight bout and show us that the training change was the best? Or will wilder reign over Fury once again? We do not know just yet but we cannot wait for the excitement to unfold.
