HENRY WHARTON has laid out his ambitions plans for York’s George Davey to feature on the undercard to Tyson Fury’s proposed world heavyweight title bout against Deontay Wilder in February.

Davey returns to the ring at the Arena Birmingham tonight, aiming to extend his professional to two wins from as many fights after a victorious professional debut at the First Direct Arena in Leeds last month.

While fulling focused upon ensuring a successful end to the year, his manager and trainer Wharton is already eyeing up bouts for Davey in 2020 with the reported Vegas blockbuster at the top of his wishlist.

Back in December, undefeated former world champion Fury twice came off the canvas to earn a split decision draw against fellow unbeaten fighter Wilder, the WBC belt-holder, in Los Angeles.

The heavyweights are set to face off once again, with reports suggesting that the rematch has been agreed for February 22 in Las Vegas.

And, Wharton is hopeful that Davey’s promoter Frank Warren, who is also part of Fury’s team, could ensure that his young protege is part of the billing.

“I’m trying and I want to get George on the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder bill in Las Vegas.

“I want George to be part of that and I want to take our squad and the team over from York.

“I know that George isn’t going to be at the top of the bill or maybe even close to that.

“But, I want to take him out there to experience that.

“I’ve put it forward to the relevant people. Frank Warren and his team think very highly of George right now.

“People in boxing know that when George made his professional debut, that that’s not the finished article.

“But that Vegas bill has got hold of me right no because everyone loves Tyson Fury.

“He’s such a gifted fighter and he’s also such a good talker too.

“He’s a phenomenon and it’d be great for George to share a bill with him.

For Davey to get to such a stage, first he has to prevail in tonight’s four-round bout.

Wharton believes that improvements are constantly being made in training camp and though they may be naked to the uneducated eye, the former world title challenger believes they are forthcoming.

“He’s continuing to get better and better and he’s continually improving all of the time,” said Wharton.

“It may be invisible to the naked eye and you don’t make improvements overnight.

“He’s moving forward by an inch everyday, say it’s almost impossible to see, but overtime you will see that those inches all add up.

“George is moving on vast amounts and the little subtle changes that we’re making, they’re massive for him in his career as a young professional.

“We can only speak volumes about him in the gym, because he’s such a dedicated kid.

“That work ethic in the gym is something that our young amateurs look up and I think the city should look up to him too.

“He doesn’t leave the gym.

“We’re now boasting a few pros in the city and hopefully we’ll be able to put on some pro shows here too.

“We want to be bring big-time boxing back to York and it’d be fantastic to have a show in the Barbican. We have got big plans for George.”
