TYSON FURY gave a classy response when asked about Anthony Joshua linking up with his former coach Ben Davison.
Davison shot to recognition as the man that brought Fury back to the ring after an absence out amid a mental health battle.

But now he is working alongside Fury’s biggest rival in Joshua, something the Gypsy King surprisingly hailed.
He said: “That’s a good match-up.
“It’s a very good move. I think it’s good for AJ because he’s local. I think it’s a good move.”
Joshua is usually trained by American mastermind Derrick James in Texas and has been for his last two bouts.
But James is currently in training camp with Ryan Garcia, who makes his return against Oscar Duarte next Saturday.
Meanwhile, Joshua, 34 is stationing himself in the UK ahead of his next fight on December 23, against Otto Wallin, 32, in Saudi Arabia.
As a result, he is temporarily working with Davison for the bout.
Davison got Fury down from 30 STONE to challenge for the world title in a draw against Deontay Wilder in 2018.
Fury, 35, was unbeaten in his five bouts with Davison before he switched to Sugarhill Steward, who he has won all five of his fights with.
Davison, 27, now works with two-time featherweight champion Leigh Wood, 35, among a host of other top prospects.
Coincidentally, his last fight with Fury was against Wallin which saw the Brit need 47 stitches despite winning on points.
