    Indicated he pulled Saunders out of the Canelo fight

    He did not have that authority and Tibbs seem a bit annoyed

    Yeah he is getting on my nerves and he is annoying a lot of people inside boxing.

    He is getting way too big for his boots, there's one thing looking out for a "friend" but it's another taking a leak over other trainers in the process.

    It won't end well for Benny Boy long term, he will burn bridges and upset a lot of people.

    While he seems a nice enough guy, I'm not sure where the evidence of him being highly knowledgeable on boxing comes from. A lot of what he says during interviews where he's discussing a fight never strikes me as being particularly profound, as in he says things you would expect a trainer to say. You'd expect other trainers to say more or less the same thing, or the same idea from a different angle.
    Anyway, he's obviously a good fitness coach and padman so isn't completely useless, I think as a head trainer though, he often comes across more like their mate than a professional coach. Always thought he seemed in awe of Tyson and would likely agree with anything he said.

    He's had the nerve to call Mark Tibbs unprofessional in an interview where he sat with chewing gum in his gob and generally behaved like an arrogant tit. He reminds me of Richard Poxon, another opportunist who managed to attach himself to some respected people in Yorkshire for a while until he was found out. One of the biggest assets in any walk of life is the acceptance that you don't know it all. Davison's ego is completely out of control. Being handed world class fighters developed by other people doesn't make you a genius, it makes you lucky. John Fury looks wiser by the day the more you see of Ben Davison.

    Tread carefully though Ben

    My respect for him with how he dealt with that sttention hungry barbaric security guard in his face at fury,-wilder 1 means he's ok by me.

    But he's in a difficult position having to gaslight for quitty Joe...bit still shows he'll do anything for his fighter

    I don’t think he’s a boxing oracle but the fact he says what you’d expect any other trainer to say isn’t necessarily a bad thing. He speaks well and is confident in front of the camera is probably something that sets him apart.

    I do think Roach was right to criticise the tactics in the first Wilder fight, as it proved in the second.

    Have a look at his latest Boxing Social interview.

    The man is a problem.

    That was nearly 3 years ago. He was ok then but now it’s all gone to his head, he is one of the most arrogant people in boxing.

    Steward had a right to be, one of the greatest trainers in history.
