After coaching both, Ben Davison was asked if he would train Anthony Joshua for a fight against Tyson Fury.

In his last four fights, Anthony Joshua has had three different trainers; nevertheless, in his most recent match against Otto Wallin, he may have had the finest one yet.

After stopping Wallin on his stool in the fifth round, Joshua showed the boxing world that he had returned to his most formidable and powerful form.

The main event of the Day of Reckoning card was Joshua’s triumph over the Swedish southpaw who, in 2019, famously put Tyson Fury through a 12-round grind. Joshua is now primed for a great 2024.

Should Fury emerge victorious from his uncontested bout with Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia on February 17, that would be one possible fight.

Ben Davison, who trained ‘AJ’ for his most recent bout and supported Fury during the Wallin battle in Las Vegas, is a common trainer for the two British heavyweights.

When asked if he would prepare Joshua for a potential matchup with Fury in an interview with ProBoxingFans, Davison declined to comment.

“It’s a hypothetical conversational isn’t it, ’cause we’re a million miles away from that happening. At the minute it’s not even on the radar, it’s not even something to think about ’cause it’s a million miles away.”

Davison went on to explain why he hasn’t given that possible challenge any thought yet.

“AJ has other tasks ahead of him and there are two fights with Fury and Usyk, so that’s the focus right now.”

Joshua has now committed to take on Francis Ngannou, a fellow former Fury opponent.
