Having played a key role in the remarkable comeback of Tyson Fury, few opinions will carry more weight on the Gypsy King’s clash with Anthony Joshua than Ben Davison’s.
Speaking to BBTV, Davison affirmed his belief that he’d ‘be surprised if politics got in the way’ of the fight taking place, so long as both fighters want the fight, he added that he thinks ‘it has become a lot more of an interesting fight’.
He continued: “Before I looked at Joshua’s style as sort of an old cowboy gunslinger – whoever lands first, because he is a big man, who lets big shots go, but he is there to be hit back and is very predictable with his punch patterns.
“That was risky and what led to him getting hit by Ruiz, but in his rematch, he showed the ability to change things up, the adaptability impressed me because he is able to be more mobile if he needs to be.
“That’s one of the key things for Tyson too, he is so versatile if you make an adaption he can make one too and that’s how I see the first few rounds going, both guys will come out and take a look at each other and one could make adaption while the other could make an adaption.
“But, I just feel like Tyson will be able change things up more, he is more versatile and much quicker and that will be the reason why he wins the fight.”
