Davison Slams 'Nonsense' Claims That Fury Tampered With Gloves

Ben Davison, the former head trainer of Tyson Fury, has rejected any claims that his boxer manipulated his gloves for last month's rematch with Deontay Wilder.

Davison had trained Fury for his first bout with Wilder, in December 2018. That contest ended in a controversial twelve round split draw.

Back in January, Fury announced that he parted ways with Davison. Not much later, Fury revealed that his new training team would have SugarHill Steward as head coach and former world champion Andy Lee in a co-trainer position.

The rematch took place on February 22, with Fury dropping Wilder twice and then stopping him in the seventh round to capture the WBC heavyweight title.

Since the contest took place, there have been claims that Fury tampered with his gloves before he entered the ring - with some critics claiming Fury's hands were not fully inside the gloves.

None of those claims have come from Wilder and his team.

Davison believes the claims are nothing more than nonsense.

"Look, there's a commissioner [from the Nevada Athletic Commission] there, there's nothing in the gloves, it's ridiculous. Something came out about the sparring as well, it's absolute nonsense. You've got a commissioner with you 24/7," Davison told IFL TV.

"Even in the lay I couldn't give Tyson an electrolytes powder thing before his fight because they said it's got to be sealed, it was sealed, there were arguments with the commission about that. They're on everything 24/7. The opposite team are watching him tie his gloves. How can he tie his gloves, get it taped up, pull his hand back out, put it in the middle [of the glove] and re-do it? It's madness.

"It's the way Tyson throws shots because he throws what are called throwaway shots, so sometimes he'll throw a punch at you that he's not intending to hit you with or intending to do damage with to make you look here or think about this. Sometimes he may throw with an open hand, flick it out to make you think about this, occupy you with something to hit you somewhere else.

"That's what you're looking at, he's flicking something out… there's nothing in the glove situation, believe me. Best of all, they are all different makes of gloves. One says it was with the Everlast gloves, then it was about the Paffen Sport gloves, then I've seen videos of the [Wladimir] Klitschko gloves which are a different style of Paffen Sport gloves. It's nonsense isn't it? There's always something isn't there? You're going to get it, he's on top of the world, so people always want something to say."
