Heavyweights Tyson Fury and Steve Cunningham weighed in on NBC Sports Network’s “The Crossover” show with Michelle Beadle and Chris Mannix hosting. Fury weighed in at 254 lbs., Cunningham came in at 210. The weigh in was followed by an on-air interview with Cunningham and Fury.
Tyson Fury: I’m in the elite level. Top of the heavyweight division. I’m looking to fight Wladimir Klitschko next time and knocking him out as well. There’s nobody that can beat me. I don’t have to trash talk anymore. I’ve done all the talking. As Steve said he’s trained really hard, which I hope he has, he’s got a great trainer, he going to get some great advice, but you know what? We have leagues for reasons. And I’m leagues above this guy and I’m going to show you that tomorrow….if Steve Cunningham can beat me I will retire tomorrow evening or whenever it is. There’s no losing. This man cannot beat Tyson Fury. Ten men like him could not beat Tyson Fury!
Steve Cunningham: By talking that trash, that just makes me go back in the gym and work harder. I wanted to beat this guy before, but now I really want to beat him. I want to make a statement so you’re going to see the best Steve USS Cunningham tomorrow.
