Review Detail

Javan should prove to be Tyson's "Ace in the Hole" on Fight Night!!
Those are all valid points in your well written and insightful article, Mr. Cleveland!! And if Tyson Fury weren't such an intelligent fighter and "quick study", I would agree that it was probably a bad idea to implement a new trainer this late in the game. But the primary reason why Tyson decided to replace a very smart fight trainer like Davison is that he focuses on distance without countering effectively. If you notice in the first fight, Tyson does a great job of avoiding incoming fire, but really misses out on the opportunities when Wilder fell out of position after he missed. Fury could have made him pay after making him miss, but was too far out of position to land an effective counter. Emanuel really hated when Wladimir did that, and always stressed staying in the pocket rather than moving out of firing range. Javan is showing Tyson how to counter effecetively after making his opponent's something that he desperately needs for a more decisive victory. But great article, brother!! Keep cranking out the gold!!

Can Javan teach a new style in 2 months?

When you've been fighting a certain way for years, you can't just adopt a new strategy overnight. It's a lot like learning a foreign language.

Wlad, in his first fight with Steward, was far from impressive because he was still learning.

I've never been a fan of switching trainers who have guided you to success.

As someone who boxed for 8 years, I know trainers have their own styles and it's easy for a fighter to get confused because he's being taught something totally different. In the end, it often leaves a fighter worse off.

GGG might be experiencing this...

And why change a fighter's style if it has been successful?

Reminds me of the first fight between Leonard and Duran. Leonard intentionally "brawled" with the brawler in order to try to prove a point, and he lost. In the rematch,Ray fought the way he was used to fighting and made Duran quit.

And Fury knows how to KO opponents. Look at the Schulz fight. He certainly capitalized on opportunities then. Does Fury think he's capable of doing that to everyone?

I think David Haye made some good points about the importance staying with the style that got you there - and if you decide to change, give yourself time.

I also question the timing of everything. Why so last minute?
