Trainer Warns: Tyson Fury Has Too Much Skill for Anthony Joshua

Ben Davison, the new head trainer for former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs), believes his fighter would have too much of everything for the current kingpin, Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs), who holds the WBA, IBO, IBF world titles.

Fury parted ways with his career trainer, uncle Peter Fury, and brought Davison on board to prepare for a planned ring return in April.

The "Gypsy King' has been inactive since stunning Wladimir Klitschko for the WBO, IBO, IBF, WBA heavyweight titles in November of 2015.


Fury overcome his issues with depression and substance abuse, and he's currently in the process of reclaiming his boxing license from the British Boxing Board of Control.

And now Fury is training hard, focused on a mission to win back all of the titles he lost.

Davison warns that Fury's power should not be underestimated - that his fighter is very capable of knocking Joshua or any other heavyweight boxer clean out.

Overall, he feels his boxer has too much of everything for someone like Joshua.

"One thing that's underrated about Tyson is his power. His style in certain fights has been to box, minimise risks by not holding his feet and not drive through the shots but if he needs to and hits any heavyweight on the chin flush, he'll knock them clean out," Davison told Isaac Robinson.

"Tyson Fury has too much skill and too much altogether for Anthony Joshua. I've worked with other heavyweights and although I'm young, I've worked at a high level in boxing for a long time. Anyone who comes in against Fury and thinks they can make it a certain type of fight, they'll find they're mistaken. He's just got too much."

Joshua is close to a deal to unify with WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker. Once finalized, their contest will take place on March 31, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

After a few tune-up fights to prove that Fury is really serious we may have a fight. Remember, fury made prime Klitschko look easy. Joshua got an old, layed-off, declining Klitschko.

No license, no discipline, no career but lots of BS.
