Photos: Tyson Fury, Francesco Pianeta - Go Face To Face

Lineal world heavyweight king Tyson Fury has championed his relationship with trainer Ben Davison ahead of Saturday’s clash with Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park.
 
Fury (26-0-KO19) ended a two-and-a-half-year hiatus from boxing with a routine victory over Sefer Seferi last time out in his first fight under the guidance of Davison.
 
As he prepares to step up in class again against a two-time world title challenger in Pianeta (35-4-1-KO21), Fury is delighted with the positive impact of the man in his corner.

Fury said: “I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s a ‘bromance’ but Ben and I do get on like a house on fire.
 
“It’s a good thing that we get on so well because communication between boxer and trainer is a key element of success.

“If Ben couldn’t get himself across to me and I couldn’t understand what he was saying, it’d be pointless working together.
 
“Ben told me I didn’t focus enough on the last fight. I couldn’t have trained any harder or eaten any better. I gave him everything I had but maybe I could’ve focused more.”

One man fully confident his son can hit the same heights as that famous 2015 night in Dusseldorf, when Fury upset Wladimir Klitschko to seize the WBA Super, IBF and WBO world titles, is his father John Fury.
 
Fury Sr said: “Seferi wasn’t the greatest opponent but look at his record. It shows how good Tyson is – the minute he gets serious, you’re in trouble. They can all talk watching him from home or giving it the big one with four or five pints down them but it’s different when you’re in the ring and up close and personal with him. He can switch it on. He’s got a Ferrari gear box. You also don’t know what you’re going to get with him and that’s what makes him Box Office and sellable.”

I hate Fury and his weigh ins. It's not a joke trying to knock someone out in the ring and he needs to treat it as such. He acts like a clown I hope Pianeta knocks his cherry picking head…

I hate seeing pics like this where the known guy is all huggy and joking with the unknown guy. Tells me that this is such a joke that the unknown is just grateful for the payday.
