FURY split with his long-time trainer – uncle Peter Fury – and is now under the stewardship of Ben Davison.

Davison told the Manchester Evening News before Fury's comeback fight against Sefer Seferi back in June: "Ricky will be helping us out and will be in the corner with us so we're very thankful to him for that.

"Ricky is one of the best fighters that the country has ever produced and him and Tyson have a lot in common. The facilities at his gym are brilliant and we've got a great team now, so we're really looking forward to the fight.

"Everybody said it was mission impossible to get Tyson back, but we've done it. The date is set and he's looking in fantastic shape."
