FRANK WARREN hopes the Tyson Fury camp is not ripped apart by a row between the fighter’s dad and trusted trainer Ben Davison.
Despite guiding Tyson through a unanimous points decision over Otto Wallin on Saturday night, after a horrific gash to his right eye at the end of the third, Davison was slaughtered by former fighter Gypsy John Fury.
Fury Sr said it was the worst performance he has ever seen from his “weak as a kitten” son and he demanded he rip up his team to save his career.
Davison, rightly heralded as a boxing mastermind for helping Fury claw his way back from 28st suicidal wreck to 18st world title challenger last year,calmly defended his corner.
And promoter Warren hopes a potential family feud is nipped in the bud before the 2020 rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Warren said: “I hope it is not the start of war of words because I like John and I have a lot of respect for him, he is an ex-professional and I even promoted him for a couple of fights many years ago.
“It’s a situation where it is his son and I don’t want to get involved in a family issue.
“Ben was in charge for Tyson’s first two comeback fights and the Deontay Wilder fight and he was called a hero for how much weight he helped Tyson lose to get back fighting again.
“Tyson has been solidly in camp for well over a year and has lost around 11st in weight.
“Sometimes your body does need a break and a rest but that is not how it has been for Tyson in training.
“It is the lightest he has been for a long time and I do hear what John is saying but I think Ben has done a really good job. Sometimes in sport you just don’t do what you should or want to do.”
BOXING legend Roy Jones Jr was offered a super-fight against heavyweight icon Mike Tyson, according to Andre Ward.
In 2003 Jones jumped from light-heavyweight to heavyweight and dethroned John Ruiz for the WBA title.
Becoming the first boxer to go from middleweight champion to heavyweight king, RJ was then offered $40m to face 'Iron Mike' Tyson.
Ward told Joe Rogan: “The thing is after the Ruiz fight, we have the same manager – James Prince – there was a Tyson fight on the table.
“I believe I'm accurate when I say this, it was somewhere around $40million guaranteed.
“There was an upside too, stay at heavyweight, keep the weight on and Tyson wasn't quite Tyson at that time.
“Still dangerous, but not but wasn't quite Tyson. I think they were working towards it but from what I heard Roy wanted more money.
“Roy somehow said, 'Mope, that fight will be there somewhere down the line' and put his attention towards Antonio Tarver – the rest is history.”
DEVIN HANEY called out Vasiliy Lomachenko after the American stopped Zaur Abdullaev.
The 20-year-old won the WBC interim lightweight title, thus earning his spot as mandatory challenger for Loma's belt.
Haney said: “Lomachenko, this guy doesn’t want to fight me.
“I’m ready to fight. Lomachenko should be fighting me.”
Haney is hoping to return on Novemember 9 in LA on the undercard of KSI's rematch with YouTube rival Logan Paul.
DILLIAN WHYTE has returned to training and “can’t wait” for his next fight despite an ongoing case with the United Kingdom Anti-Doping Agency.
An “adverse finding” was revealed in Whyte’s pre-fight drug test before he beat Oscar Rivas on July 20.
The WBC interim heavyweight title he won against Rivas was then stripped but the Brit was not suspended by the governing body and passed all his Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency tests before the bout.
His trainer Mark Tibbs told iFL TV the heavyweight is back in the gym after promoter Eddie Hearn revealed a hearing with UKAD is set for October to resolve the case.
Tibbs said: “I’ve had a couple of training sessions with Dillian.
“Just a bit of down-time training, not boxing training. Seeing him at the weekend, bit more training.
“He can’t wait, he can’t wait to get back fighting again.
“That’s why he’s a little bit frustrated, but I think he’s got some business to sort out.
“And he’s gonna get back, he loves fighting, he absolutely loves having a fight, a tear-up.”
