Conor McGregor urges Tyson Fury to reconsider split with Ben Davison with Deontay Wilder fight on horizon

Conor McGregor has called on Tyson Fury to reconsider his decision to part ways with trainer Ben Davison.

Davison has been in the corner of Fury for the past two years, helping him shed 10 stone en route to ending a near three year hiatus out the ring, but the pair will no longer work together.

The move is even more surprising given Fury is scheduled to rematch Deontay Wilder for the WBC title on February 22, but the Brit announced that Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill Steward, the nephew of the late Emmanuel Steward, would train him for that fight.

But former two-weight UFC world champion McGregor thinks they are wrong to split with such a big fight around the corner.

“Get over it men and get back to work. Finish the job,” he wrote on Twitter.

Davison himself also went on social media to address the situation and said he and Fury would still be friends.

“Obviously it’s not gonna stop until there’s an answer, Tyson and myself had to both make decisions for our careers, which resulted in our working relationship coming to an end, HOWEVER, we remain friends and he will SMASH the DOSSER!”

Davison has been in the corner for Fury when he fought Sefer Seferi, Franceso Pianeta, the first Wilder the fight, Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin.

John Fury, the heavyweight’s dad and former trainer, launched a scathing attack on Davison and called for him to be sacked following the fight with Wallin, in which Fury suffered a horrific cut in the third round and struggled for the remainder of the contest.

McGregor, who has not fought in the Octagon since October 2018, is training for his January fight against Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.

Fury has teased a switch to mixed martial arts and after working on some moves with UFC middleweight Darren Till, told talkSPORT McGregor has invited him to train.

“He’s one of the world’s biggest entertainers. It goes beyond winning or losing at a certain level and he’s one of the, if not the biggest draw in the world of combat sports now. So he’s done fantastic in his career.”
