    Christ I remember slating him on here years ago and pretty much universally told I was wrong. Nice that people have caught up.

    He looks like his office is a Weatherspoons or a cheap strip club and he smells of cigarettes

    Davies is a bloated idiot with little knowledge of the sport and little talent as a writer as anyone who has had to endure his boring state the bleeding obvious Telegraph columns will know.

    So such an obnoxious and desperate line of questioning is little suprise

    It was a ridiculous question at an open press conference. Fury was pretty restrained in his answer.

    Bunce asked a complete jaw-dropper live on BT from the ring too… "Is it the best heavyweight fight you've seen?" Fury responded with "I don't know, I haven't seen it, I was in it" and promptly closed the interview.

    Davies is either playing a character with some knowledge of what he's up to or else has a frightening lack of self awareness, really needs to learn to stop and to some degree analyse the words that are about to exit his mouth before doing so - Thinking before you speak is a good quality Gareth

    Don't forget the Primark multi coloured slip on's and knee length blazer

    Awful question from Gareth Davies.
    He seems to be one of those guys that people tolerate because he's 'mostly harmless' and (in Fury's case) allow him into the inner circle and treat him as a friend, but he abuses his position by coming up with inappropriate crap questioning like that.
    On the radio, while interviewing Paris Fury before the fight, he introduced her as "the beautiful Paris Fury" (fair enough) and then went on to describe her attire and appearance in some detail (unnecessary and somewhat inappropriate). These minor things are not offensive taken in isolation, but it is habitual with him, and all adds up to him coming across as having some sort of disorder. How can these people who seemed to have lacked some basic commonsense socialization, and lack self awareness, get jobs as interviewers, journalists and presenters??

    Steve Bunce is another one. Complete tool. Ranting his head off in his squeaking shouty voice, coming up with some new crap angle and going off on weird anecdotal tangents that have no relevance. Some sort of misfit.

    Adam "Partridge" Smith. The nonce. He can talk sensible at times then just flip into full Partridge mode, in fact he goes beyond parody. He's not normal.

    I hate to say it, but perhaps we are better off with the bimbos. At least the females tend to stay in the lane somewhat, and when they ask something stupid, it's normal stupid, not creepy stupid.

    Man words question wrong. Big deal.
    Fury’s a multi multi millionaire and a big boy. There’s millions more worthy people of this forums sympathy. Sure he can handle it. His mental health issues were all convenient.

    It’s getting far too much all this stuff now

    Spot on about Steve Bloody Bunce. He thinks because he's been covering boxing since the dark ages, he needs to ask some weird, and completely irrelevant question which the "New age" journos won't have asked because they're not real boxing journalists. In reality, Bunce needs to be put out to pasture. He's just one big shouting mess as far as I'm concerned.

    Gareth A Davies. Another fackin weirdo who's interviews I avoid like the plague. I'm just glad no major sports channel has picked up him to be a presenter. He longs out a simple question to about 5 minutes again thinking he's coming in from a different angle which no one else has thought of because they're all new age boxing people, when in reality, he's just being a nuisance to the boxer he's interviewing.

    People who it has nothing to do with demanding an explanation for an innocent question that they (not the man who he said it to I’m guessing) have an issue with. The fella squirming to justify a himself. As if he meant any harm.

    It was disgusting. Whats more Fury is close to him. When he shits press away when in camp hr only generally makes an exception for Gareth Davies, Kugan and MJP as he trusts all three and they go back a long way with him.

    Agree. Thats mental he done that with Fury's wife. Not the first bit but desrubing whst she's wearing eg. Weird. You wouldnt trust someone like that alone with your wife, would you.

    Dont like Bunce, two-faced fake hardman. Remember seeing him back in the day at a Scott Harrison fight. He had been two-faced about Harrison in the press, and me being young and brash at the time went over and told him man to man he was a helmet and why he was a helmet.

    What i remember most, and and im no tough guy is how pale he went when i told him what be was lol. Never said a single word back to me.
