Tyson Fury has a new trainer less than two months before his rematch with Deontay Wilder.

Fury's former coach Ben Davison made the news public over the weekend and the ‘Gypsy King’ didn't waste much time in naming his replacement.

Fury will now work under Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill, the nephew of the late trainer Emmanuel Steward, who trained Andy Lee from 2005 until his death in 2012.

Hill will prepare Fury for his heavyweight rematch with WBC champion Deontay Wilder, which is set to take place in February.

Fury visited Steward’s iconic Kronk Gym in 2010 where his cousin Andy Lee trained.

Under the guidance of Davison, Fury lost nearly 10 stone in a year before his draw against Wilder in Los Angeles last December.

Davison was pivotal in helping Fury cope with his mental health and addiction problems.
