“You can’t put the Klitschkos in the same category as me,” proclaimed unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (20-0, 14 KOs) from his Canadian training camp at Casino Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec. “Nobody outside of the Ukraine and Germany care anything about them. They fought a few times in America. Wladimir fought a real stinker in Madison Square Garden.”
The 6’9 Fury will face two-time world champion Steve “USS” Cunningham (25-5, 12 KOs) on NBC in a Saturday afternoon fight at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
“Cunningham is a good boxer and world champion who fought in different countries,” Fury added. “He’s a small heavyweight who will come in with a good game plan and strategy. I anticipate him running but, sooner or later, I will catch him and knock him out. If he runs, I hope the fans boo him out of the arena. He’s going to have to fight me. I’m coming to fight and put on a show.”
