Ex-trainer Ben Davison believes Tyson Fury has two different sides to his character. Fury, the man himself, is much composed and an elite boxer who has nothing to do with the social tantrums. However, Davison claims Fury’s secondary persona, ‘The Gypsy King’ to be a promotional star. So, Davison didn’t seem worried about Fury’s current dissent on facing Anthony Joshua.

With no official developments yet, Tyson Fury has recently ridiculed his upcoming fight against ‘AJ’ and has hesitated to confirm it from his end. It has saddened a lot of fans, making them doubtful about the possibilities of seeing the heavyweight clash. But, Ben Davison connected with Boxing Social and revealed his thoughts to bring a lifeline to the matchup.

Davison said. “I don’t know anything about the situation, but what I can tell you is this. Tyson Fury is a completely different person to The Gypsy King. The Gypsy King is promoting, selling, doing his business and this that and the other you know. So, I can’t comment on what he is saying about his fight and this and that and all these and other little bits. Because he could be in ‘The Gypsy King’ mode there.”

To clear the path, WBO has also announced an Interim fight between Joe Joyce and Oleksandr Usyk. While Usk could have challenged Joshua with his mandatory spot, almost everyone has worked together to pit Fury opposite Joshua.

Though the ongoing turmoils have clearly disrupted the plans, we can still expect the clash to happen this year.

Do you think Fury is displaying a different side of his persona, or is there more to the fight’s progress than meets the eye?
