Tyson Fury has split with his trainer Ben Davison. As he has possibly the most important fight of his career coming up against Wilder on Feb 22nd, surely this cannot be a good thing?

Anybody got any ideas who TF might take on as a trainer now, and at such short notice? Or will the fight be cancelled as many have feared?

I wonder if it's partly because Fury wants to base himself in America now? He seems to like it there, and I expect most of his fights will be over there now.

Tyson Fury's issues have in my opinion been associated with motivation based around his bipolarism.  But in terms of the planning and decision making I don't think he has put a foot wrong.  He also has very good family members around him - his uncle Peter (who is not allowed in the US because of a prior conviction in the Uk) and his father John.  Ben Davison received a lot of criticism from some quarters because of the way the Otto Wallin fight turned out - with some saying Fury could and should have been better prepared for it.

The Wallin fight was a complete mess, but the way I see it, the cut happened very early on and it changed everything. Just one of those things, I don't think anyone can be blamed for it...

So, Fury's change of trainer is to enable him to knock out Wilder.

"I'm not coming here for a points decision, I've had too many of them - nine of them - I'm coming here for a knockout, I've had 21 of them and from the heart that's what I'm looking to do.

"This is why I employed Sugar Hill. If I didn't want a knockout, I wouldn't have hired a Kronk [the famous Detroit gym] trainer. If I didn't want a knockout, I'd have kept Ben Davison and working on that herky-jerky style."

Could be true or could be mind games. Sugggestions are that Wilder was not too worried about Fury's power so could try to walk through punches to land a knock out. But walking through punches is not Wilder's style - he just focuses on trying to read the opponent and then delivering a single knockout punch. Apparently the way he does it is he pushes out his left fist to block the opponents face and as he is withdrawing the left he lunges in with his right to deliver a knockout punch.

Meanwhile, Fury says he is masturbating seven times a day to increase his testosterone. So long as he is not eating boars testes (or whatever it was that supposedly caused his drugs failure).

He could end up blind.

Would have the opposite effect, well known to be poor for energy levels.
