Ben Davison will be watching Deontay Wilder closely in his clash with Dominic Breazeale to see if the WBC champion shows any after effects from his showdown with Tyson Fury.

The Gypsy Kings coach will be in the corner at Billy Joe Saunders world title bid on Saturday, but is curious to see whether Wilder changes up his style after his controversial draw with Fury last December.

Most onlookers scored Fury as the winner of the heavyweight clash and Davison thinks he has already spotted Team Wilders attempts to alter their fighter.

I always keep a keen eye on the other two in the heavyweight division, he told Metro.co.uk.

I would say from what Ive seen is that Deontay Wilder is a bit psychologically damaged from the Tyson Fury fight.

Itll be interesting to see how that will affect his performance. I can see their team has tried to make lots of changes, so itll be interesting to see whether that works for him or not.

While Wilder has shown no public signs of a dip in confidence, his mandatory challenger Breazeale is convinced he can beat the American king.

Fury pulled out of the rematch with Wilder earlier this year, but still plans to take on the Bronze Bomber by February 2020.

Davison believes Wilder has more than enough to knock out Breazeale and predicted the heavyweight champion would beat any fighter put in front of him – except Fury.

I think if the Wilder of usual turns up, it could be an early night – within five rounds. But, if theres too many changes and there is psychological damage, then it could be an interesting one, he explained.

What they need to understand is the Deontay Wilder of old will beat everybody – except Tyson Fury.

Theres a danger to making too many changes. They need to understand nobody can keep up with Tyson when it comes to boxing. They shouldnt beat themselves up about that.
