Scott what are you smoking?? Tyson Fury can beat any top 10 in the heavy weights. Just look whats out there. NOTHING to BRAG about, david Haye (Who has even a BIGGER LOUD MOUTH) Would give TYSON Furry all he could handle KO the GLASS JAW Limited boxing skills that Furry has. Then putting that NO talented furry in with a REAL heavy weight like VLAD that would be the END of TYSONS carrer. Furry is doing a DAVID HAYE calling out a KLITCHKO looking for a PAYDAY.. Hey it work for HAYE why not me Furry thinks. Point is HAYE broken toe and all can BOX Furry can NOT.

Fury will get a BELT when the KLITCHKOS say so. Meaning when they retire. Fury is NO threat to any Klitchko thats for dam sure. Maybe Vlad will give Tyson Furry a shot. like MAYWEATHER I know I can beat this guy so WHY NOT give him a shot. That will be the END for TYSON FURRY King of the B class fighters.

Harry…I belive in the Johnson fight and even the one before it,we saw Fury with some decent skills.Yes he will never be a Ali in the ring,but his skill level isnt as bad as this fight made him out to be.I belive the smaller slick fighter didnt help,his uncle not in his corner didnt help aswell,and most of all his excitiment to impress the Americans threw him way off his game plan.Fury is better then this and at 24 I belive he will have a world belt within 4-6 yrs. and he will give us a roller-coaster ride as long as he fights.

Slip and Hit, yes he did react well, my thought is whether or not Fury would have got back on his feet if they’d been an additional 40lbs of weight behind a good punch. Although I’d love to see a UK world heavyweight champion again I feel Tyson Fury lacks boxing ability, he’s big, he’s strong and he’s tough as you mention but he is in no way gifted when it comes to the art of boxing. You can only teach so much and I don’t believe that you can teach the clumsiness out of Fury and make him a refined boxer. Some are gifted, Tyson’s not. You mentioned golf, Tyson looks like a righty trying to golf left handed when he boxes. He’s got away with it at lower levels but he’s going to come up against well coordinated and in some cases naturally gifted fighters going forward if he wants to get a belt.

harry…..People were saying the same thing you were when Fury fought Johnson…like you said about Thompson.And Fury fought a different fight and did very well.Aganist Thompson we would see a style like when he fought Johnson,picking spots,more mature.This fight against Cunningham was not Fury at his best,and the style and slickness of Cunningham played a part aswell.Smaller slick fighters can cause certain problems,but in the end Fury used his strengh,size,got stronger as rounds went on and did the right thing ending in a 7th rd. k.o.

slip and hit

HARRY…Getting knocked down isnt the worse thing in boxing…after all its boxing not golf.Its how a fighter reacts to a punch or knockdown and Fury always comes back strong if not stronger after it.The kid seems to be tough as nails and a smaller slick fighter like Cunningham sometimes has a better chance at getting to a big man then another big man.

Harry

I mentioned before the fight that I thought Fury would win but in the process Cunningham would highlight Fury’s clumsiness and limited boxing ability. Fury was calling for Tony Thompson and I think against a legitimate decent (albeit old) heavyweight like Thompson the wheels will finally come off for Fury. It will be very interesting to see who Fury fights next. If Cunningham can knock him over then any heavyweight big hitter will KO him. The standard of competition should now rise at an exponential rate and Fury will have to show some significant improvement to remain in the conversation.

Fury calling out KLITCHKO.. When Fury got CLOCK and hit the canvas by a BLOWN UP OLD PAST HIS PRIME CRUISERWEIGHT. Furys STOCK just decline. Klitchko would KNOCK his ass out. FURY has a GLASS JAW. He won the fight, but got EXPOSED at the same time. I dont like LOUD MOUTH HAYE but haye would KNOCK loud mouth Furys ass out cold. Fury would do great in the UFC. BRAWLER TYPE. but he has limited boxing skills and a GLASS JAW, hes no threat to any klitchko thats for sure.

This whole braggart role that Fury is play-acting is a well proven method of pulling in media and fan attention.. Half the fans get a kick out of it.. Half the fans hate your guts… A lot of them want to see you fight, either to rejoice in your victories — or to laugh their asses off when you get KO’d.

Either way it’s money in the bank.

Cunningham beat Adamek…. Fury would beat the living HElLL out of Adamek, but he won’t be able to get that fight… Adamek picks his spots and only fights soft opponents, unless it’s a title shot… Adamek turned Pulev down flat.

Pulev, Haye, the Klitschkos, Jennings, and Wilder would all flatten Fury. I don’t see a lot of other heavyweights out there who would beat him — so Fury is a legitimate Top-10 Heavyweight.

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

Adamek was thoroughly outboxed by Cunningham and was given a very big and totally corrupt gift decision. I think Fury would figure out a way to win and beat him as well. But that is one match I’d love to see. Put Fury in with Adamek, Arreola or Mitchell.

Scot.. You forgot to mention that Cunningham just came off a fight that he really beat a top ranked hvwt. in Adamek….And lets not forget to mention Fury is 24 still on a learning curve…this was a very decent win for the kid….

Congratulations Tyson,

You beat a 36 year old fighter with 5 losses when you fought him. Further props for taking on a guy with 38.71% KO percentage. The fact that you only got knocked down once by this past his prime, former Cruiserweight, and feather fisted fighter shows us just how talented you really are. I’m glad you don’t put to much stock or boast about this type of victory and want to step up the level of opposition. You also indicated recently that the Klitschko’s won’t fight you because you’re young, hungry, and dangerous. Of course you’re right, who would want to fight someone who beats up on top teir contenders, comes into the ring in great shape, and has such sharp boxing skills? Keep up the good work. I laugh at all the people and press who say you’re just like David Price.

Fury, at only 24, is doing just fine. Boxrec just moved him up to #6 in the heavyweight division after Haye, Pulev, Adamec and the Klitchko brothers. Personally, I think that’s too high and that he’s not ready yet to fight Pulev. However, Fury’s definitely on his way up. It would be foolish to write him off at this still early stage of his career.

Good article. Unlike the first commenter, I don’t find Fury “fun to watch” at all, but that’s probably because I’m a fan of boxing (a genuine sport, requiring hard-won skill and intelligence) rather than of wrestling (farcical pantomime featuring overgrown morons with big mouths). There is no doubt that Fury would be better suited to the latter, and I dearly hope he makes the move ASAP. To speak on behalf of the vast majority of people in the UK, we’d also appreciate it if he didn’t let people know he’s from England. They love the Irish in the States, Tyson. You’d be much better off emphasising your Irish roots. Trust me on this: go take up wrestling, and call yourself Tyson “The Irish Giant” Fury: you’ll be a WWE star in no time! As for boxing, please give up: it’s painfully embarrassing to watch (even when you *don’t* punch yourself in the face [you twat]).

Fury is very good at 24, he will be even better in a couple of years, he is set to rule the heavyweight division for some time to come.

First time I saw Fury fight and all i can say is BUM ,first HW with some finess will dance outbox or KO this man.

Second of all why Is cunningham crying over “he put his weight on me” thats HW boxing stop making excuses.

Entertaining ,but no way in HELL this was close to a decent exciting HW fight.

It’s funny as this article reads very bitter. If the weight difference was an issue Cunningham shouldn’t have taken the fight. Fury is no boxer he’s a fighting man. His skills are limited but he loves a good scrap. That said he can still beat any heavyweight America can put him in with and probley won’t come undone until he meets a klitchco. Americans can slate him and say his boxing isn’t great but they still can’t come up with someone who can beat him pretty funny really

Fury can box better, he was too worked up and hyper and Cunningham planted him on his arse because of it. I am hoping shows a bit more professionalism next time out. The good news is that he went down hard but recovered very quickly. I think he is a threat to anyone but he needs to mature a bit ….. and please, please, please no more singing!!!!

Its FUNNY how the picture in the article shows FURY lying on his back. Gee I wonder where this colum is written? ha ha ha The FRONT page should SHOW CUNNINGHAM lying on his back LOSING the fight. Oh well it has been a GREAT week for FOREIGN BOXERS.

Posted April 21, 2013 1:36 pm 


Dan D

This was for a IBF eliminator so give him his chance. I want to see his train grind to a halt. He isn’t half as good as he thinks. He is average but a big lad so gets away with it. Out him in with Haye, David will stop him in 4 rounds.

Posted April 21, 2013 1:21 pm

Fury reminds me a great deal of a young Jerry Cooney. He’s sort of a mixed bag in that respect. He has things that he does well and others that he is frankly no better than most amateurs at. First the good. He does have a versatile and varied offensive arsenal that includes a good inside game and body work. He also has some power after he has sufficiently worn down his opponent. But in my humble opinion, his weaknesses not only outweigh his strengths, they also probably cannot be corrected. First, his jab. It’s weak and is not used as it is intended, i.e., to set up power punches and successful combinations. Fury simply sticks it out there one jab at a time and it rarely plays any part in either setting up his offense or keeping guys off when in defensive mode. Secondly, his footwork is pathetic. I realize he’s big, but there are plenty of super heavies that don’t look like lumbering apes in the ring. Thirdly, he get hit way too much to ever think he can survive against the big punchers. This final fatal flaw is, in my opinion, due to the fact that he has a weak jab that does not allow him to control distance and take full advantage of his height. I don’t think you can correct all or possibly even any of those flaws, especially since Fury appears to believe that he’s just perfect the way he is.

Fury WON due to outweighing his opponent by 44 pounds. IF he was 25 pounds SMALLER he would have LOST. SKILLS trumps SIZE UP to a 20 lb difference.

Posted April 21, 2013 12:55 pm 


Tell It Like It Is

Fury almost got knocked out by an aging 36 year old 210 lb. fighter who has a 38% knock out ratio, and is not known for knock out power. Cunningham also is on the downside of his career losing 3 of his last 4 fights. Fury did not impress. His best offense is leaning on his opponent and placing his forearm on his opponents neck/body. He is pathetically uncoordinated. His punching is primitive and undeveloped. He lacks basic fine motor skills and his real boxing skills are challenged. A narcissist megalomaniac like Fury has a distorted perception of reality and himself. He would be systematically picked apart, embarrassed and destroyed by either K.

Hughie Fury is a big prospect. Really impressed with this kid so far. He was an excellent a mature, strolled to the world armature title. Hope he is not rushed too quickly though but he looks a class act so far.

If Furu is getting knocked down by Cunningham he is not gonna be able to beat the harder punching heavies. And unless he fights for a vacant title, he probly won’t win the title. And he will never be the champ at heavy

Good article, well written for a change on this website. Fury has potential, he has good hands, accurate punches, a decent chin (he just needs to stop getting caught flush), he is a giant of a guy, however he needs to do a fair bit of work in other areas. Manny Stewart would have been a great trainer for him. He would have taught him to work off the jab and use his size advantage. In my opinion Fury needs to step back, train harder on technical things, and fight some easier fighters thus allow himself to develop. If he doesn’t then someone will knock him out soon. Lets not forget though he is very young and if he is taught and guided properly then he could be a great fighter.

Posted April 21, 2013 12:15 pm

The fighter to watch is his cousin Hughie Fury. For an 18 yr old he showed an extraordinary amount of poise and professionalism. He be a major player in the heavies.

Give it a break Dave, Fury is 24 and having some fun, and he is fun, and he comes to fight. I appreciate that a lot more than guys like Saftypin Johnson and the Hayemaker, who talked their way into a big fight, then refused to fight.

Raging bull

I enjoyed the boxing on channel 5 and love seeing the boxing on terrestrial TV, although there were a few annoying mistakes like saying he is the current British champion when David price clearly is, and the rubbish round replays that looked like they were made on windows movie maker..
I thought fury was fun 2 watch last night although it has definitely gone 2 his head when he was giving it big licks in round 1 then in the following round got dealt with, by a massive overhead right hand, and to be honest Cunningham is no heavyweight at 210 pounds. Fury had a massive 45lb weight advantage and the leaning on Steve definitely wore him down, although fury has down well to get this far and I think he may even get past Pulev but his o will go when he meets a klitchko or the hayemaker …however I do think he would beat David price. Prices last defeat was no fluke he has a glass jaw which is such a shame as his boxing skills are awesome, and he look so much better than fury’s sloppy punching.
