Tyson Fury's Coach: Wilder is a More Dangerous Fight Than Joshua

Ben Davison, the new trainer for former IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs), is currently preparing the 'Gypsy King' for a planned comeback on a date in April.

Fury has been inactive since traveling to Germany to capture his heavyweight titles with an upset twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko.

He lost all of his titles while dealing with boxing politics and health concerns.

So far Davison is very impressed with Fury's work ethic and his abilities in the ring.

The trainer wants Fury to take things slow, despite there being a huge demand to have him face some of the bigger names in the division - like current IBF, IBO, WBA world champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs).

“It would be nice to give him the chance to have a few warm ups. Everyone wants him to jump in with this person and that person and I know he talked about fighting AJ for his first fight but they decided to go with the [Joseph] Parker fight but for me it would be nice, if I have it my way, I’d like him to have three or four warm up fights this year, get him active," Davison told Boxing News. 

"I can’t remember the last time Tyson had the chance to be active – he’s been fighting once or twice a year. I know he’s a heavyweight but keep him active. That will help keep him in love with the sport, keep him in shape, keep him motivated and help bring the love back even more.”

While some view Joshua as the most dangerous opponent for Fury - Davison believes that label should be given to WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs).

Wilder and Fury traded words, face to face, in January 2016 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. They appeared to be on course for a fight, but it never happened.

“I think Deontay Wilder [is more dangerous for Fury than Joshua], because with Wilder he fights well under pressure,” offered Davison.

“If you watch him against [Johann] Duhaupas he doesn’t panic, he’s quite relaxed but he’s also got a very long reach, fast hands, he can box at distance and we know when he hurts you he gets wild. But there are certain things that, when people do a certain something to him, he has a bad habit. He’s only boxed one person who’s done that to him and I’m not going to say what that is, but it’s one thing that Tyson will definitely bring to the table.”
