Joshua Turns to Ben Davison to Prepare for Otto Wallin Clash

Anthony Joshua has reportedly hired Ben Davison, former coach to Tyson Fury, to assist him in training for his upcoming fight against Otto Wallin. The heavyweight bout is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia on December 23, the same date that Fury was initially set to fight Oleksandr Usyk.

The Fifth Coach in Just Over Two Years

Davison will be Joshua's fifth coach in just over two years, according to the Daily Star. Joshua parted ways with long-term trainer Robert McCracken following his first defeat to Usyk. He then worked with Robert Garcia and Angel Fernandez, but split after losing to Usyk for a second time. Derrick James became Joshua's trainer for his wins over Jermaine Franklin and Robert Helenius. However, James cannot train Joshua for the Wallin clash due to his commitment to another boxer, Ryan Garcia.

A One-Time Basis

While Davison will only be assisting Joshua on a one-time basis, he has already begun working with the heavyweight at his gym in Essex, UK. Joshua's permanent coach, Derrick James, will continue to train him, but is unavailable for this particular fight.

A Return to the Limelight for Davison

Ben Davison's collaboration with Joshua marks a return to the spotlight for the former coach. Davison previously worked with Tyson Fury during his comeback to the ring and was in Fury's corner for his first bout with Deontay Wilder, which ended in a draw. Fury later decided to part ways with Davison in order to work with SugarHill Steward to enhance his knockout power.
