    Anyone remember when he randomly cornered BJS for a fight, and was ridiculed by every single fan who watched it? That should've been the last we heard of him

    Agree with alot on here but a tad harsh on Davidson.
    Tell me , what more has he to do ?
    One of the main issues I hear is he hasn't brought any boxer from day 1 .
    OK that's fine but he isn't in the game long enough to do that.
    Tell me who ticks all the boxes.
    Who has had big fighters in big wins .
    Who has brought a boxer from A to Z.
    Who has made an average amateur into a world champ etc etc .

    Agree with you on Davison. Shane McGuigan is ticking quite a few of those boxes.

    I think the starting point is to look at whether their fighters have underachieved or overachieved given their potential. Davison got hold of BJS and he looked garbage against Akavov. Then Fury was at his worst against Wilder I, Wallin and Schwarz, but you can hardly blame Davison there (even though he did get the boot). Then Josh Taylor performed as expected against Ramirez.

    So for me it's too early to tell. We need to see more before we can start having a proper conversation about him. Be interesting to see what he does with McGregor and Wood.

    Having said all that it still does have a whiff of fake it until you make it.

    I'm not advocating Davidson in any way but you can only beat what's in front of you as they say.
    Shane for me is doing similar to Ben but took Frampton to the top so he ticks that box .
    Very few tick all the boxes to keep people happy on here.
    Most opinions are regards their personality or maybe there are rival trainers on here haha

    Boxercise Ben was just a PE teacher up north until fat fury came knocking for some strength and conditioning sessions. Now he thinks hes the worlds greatest

    Was he really a PE teacher? I can't imagine that he is university educated. Or is this a traveller PE class?

    Wilder 2 really exposed the difference between amateurs like ben and real boxing men like freddie the joke coach roach.

    I thought roach was being a twat, but his analysis proved to be true.

    Yes. And Tyson (and probably John) took the Roach advice, found someone to think it through and execute it, and the rest is history.
    It’s a shame they had to go through the Wallin fight for it to become clear.

    He’s clearly not educated enough to be a PE teacher. He’s not unintelligent, but there’s no way he’s had much formal education.

    Leigh Wood looked a lot better against Can Xu than pre-Davison against worse opponents. Taylor/Ramirez was a real 50/50 I thought.

    Anwyay, yet to listen to this week's pod but I agree with the sentiment. I think Ben just winds a lot of people up but he's already got some impressive achievements under his belt.
