Tyson Fury’s trainer, Ben Davison, has flatly denied rumours that Tyson Fury recently knocked out fellow Brit Joe Joyce in a recent sparring session.

Joyce has been working closely with Fury in the build-up to December’s eagerly anticipated bout between the Gypsy King and American Deontay Wilder.

Rumours began to circulate that Fury had knocked out Joyce over the weekend but Davison took to Twitter to reject those claims.

“Some rumours about Tyson and Joe sparring, not true,” Davison wrote.

“Joe is a class act, has helped massively in preparation, and he is a force to be reckoned with. Nobody got knocked out. Rumours = false.”

It will be interesting to see if either of the two men actually involved will also respond to the rumours.

Fury and Joyce have been sparring lately in order to prepare the former for the hard-hitting Wilder.

The Bronze Bomber has won 39 out of his 40 fights by knockout, demonstrating that sheer power that he possesses. Joyce has showed signs of showing similar power since turning professional in 2017, winning all six of his bouts by knockout, hence why he has been selected as part of Fury’s camp.

Joyce has also sparred with Anthony Joshua in the past, but he gives the edge to Fury, naming him the ‘most talented’ boxer he has faced.

“I am getting the best possible work right now, I feel better than ever sparring Tyson, making me a better fighter as he is the most talented I’ve been in a ring with, which brings the best out of me,” the 33-year-old Joyce tweeted. “You would pay good money to see these spars!”

It is now less than a month before Fury and Wilder face-off at the Staples Center for the WBC heavyweight title, with both training camps well underway. Whoever comes out on top will potentially set up a mouthwatering clash with Joshua.

Meanwhile, Joyce will appear on the undercard of December’s event in Los Angeles, facing American Joe Hanks.
