Davison Feels Fury May Have Overtrained, Adjustments Needed

Ben Davison, the head trainer for heavyweight Tyson Fury, believes his fighter may have overtrained for last Saturday's fight against Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Fury won a twelve round unanimous decision, but sustained two severe cuts in the bout and he was also buzzed in the twelfth and final round.

Fury is now in line for a rematch with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in February 2020 - if Wilder wins his own rematch with Luis Ortiz, which is scheduled for a date in November.

Fury's father, John Fury, lashed out at Davison in the aftermath of the Wallin bout. He called for everyone to be fired - after what he felt was a poor performance by his son.

But Davison admits that his boxer make have steered from the training plan at times.

"Potentially [he over-trained], because even when he’s not with me he’s constantly training. So I have tried to encourage him to have a little bit of a rest, but it’s hard to do as well because for his mental state he trains so even when I’m giving him advice to have a bit of time off it affects him mentally. So we do have to take a look at that and find the balance for sure," Davison told Boxing Social.

"He came in slightly lighter than anticipated, but what I will say is, by the time he got in the ring he would have been a lot heavier than what he weighed on the scales, that’s for sure. I’m always looking at areas we can improve and there were a couple of things in the last couple of days that I wasn’t too happy with in terms of the final stages of preparation, just straying off the nutrition plan a little bit.

"When you eat foreign foods that your body has not eaten for four, five, six weeks it doesn’t sit well with the gut. There was a couple of changes, he strayed off the plan a couple of times after he’d weighed in, even just before he’d weighed in as well. I do feel like – well I know, whatever he may say – that he wasn’t feeling himself 100%. But it’s all part of it, it’s all part of learning, all lessons for the future."

It wasn’t that Fury wasn’t in shape, he was. The difference was that Wallin hurt him, cut him and made him work at a pace he wasn’t comfortable with.
