Davison responded to media reports that the pair were parting ways on Twitter on Sunday.

“Obviously it’s not gonna stop until there’s an answer,” Davison said.

“Tyson and myself had to both make decisions for our careers, which resulted in our working relationship coming to an end. We remain friends and he will smash the dosser (Wilder).”

Hill is the nephew of the late Emmanuel Steward, who trained the 31-year-old Fury in the past.

Fury posted a picture of himself and Steward on Instagram, along with Hill and former world champions Andy Lee, with the caption “Getting the old team back up and running.”

Fury and Wilder will face each other in their highly anticipated rematch in Las Vegas on 22 February.
