USS would blow Chicken Deontay out of the water! He would outbox Arreola The Blob & go evens with TNT Thompson. Jennings would UD USS tho. The guy’ll never win a world strap, but hes a more genuine fighter than a lot of the chicken-heart big guys who wont fight anyone!

Sometimes when a fighter moves up in weight he develops more power, Cunningham put Fury down with a very good shot, and Fury, despite his sometimes almost total disregard for defence, has only been put down one other time. So, Cunningham may well have a bit more pop at heavy than some iagine, time will tell though. I think he would be a match for anyone outside the top 6 heavies; Wlad, Vitali, Povetkin, Fury, Haye, Pulev are all better, but I would rate his chances as fair to good against anyone else right now.

steve sounds like a very likeable gentleman. hope he does well, his lack of power at HW though is a major major worry

Agree with TonyG. Even if he can’t win a title there’s plenty of good paydays as a lead gatekeeper. And the six figure paydays add up quickly. Plus he can upset any of the contenders ranked 5-20.

Dont agree USS cant go anywhere at heavy; he got robbed against Adamek and dropped Fury, and both those guys are rated in top 5 or 6 at Heavy. USS would beat up a lot of hype jobs who get more headlines, he is a better fighter than Wilder and Arreola, and who else in the USA is there right now? Thompson? Jennings? Wilder and Arreola and that’s it, and i’d give USS a great chance against any of em! Adamek outboxed Arreola and USS got jobbed vs Adamek, Thompson would be 50-50 and Wilder and Jennings have fought nobody even near USS class. As for Hanks, Kelvin Price, Malik Scott and Hamer, forget ‘em, exposed fighters already!

stuck in a moment

I typed this before. I met Steve down here in south fl when he fought WB. My buddy was the manager of Francisco Palasios. He called me over to meet Steve at the hotel lobby. He is beyond cool. We talked about boxing and life for 30 min and he took pics with me. Super nice guy. I have always been a fan. I was the one who ended the conversation. He would never walk away from a fan. Your awesome Steve. I hope you and your family are doing well

I’ve been a fan of Cunningham’s ever since he beat Huck. That was a great rumble, almost a closet classic. He’s still underrated.

Cunningham is past his sell-by date. His HW career will expire soon…

Whilst Cunningham has good speed, he certainly hasn’t got too much power at heavyweight, I watched Cunningham fight journeyman Jason Gavern a while back, and whilst Cunningham easily outboxed Gavern, he never managed to hurt Gavern, and Gavern has been Koed by Browne, Larsen,Ustinov, Wach and Boystov.

“Hughie Fury now a pro prospect”????

Hughie Fury has only had 9 fights and nearly all of his opponents have lost 6,5 or 4 of their last 6 fights.
How on Earth can Fury be labelled a “Pro prospect” at this early stage of his career.

“Peter selected you for this camp obviously because you share some qualities as David Haye, movement, speed and power” Cunningham has no power whatsoever. I honestly don’t think he can be anything more than a gatekeeper at HW.

USS CUNNINGHAM is one of the nicest guys in boxing. He always has time for his fans and has never ducked a challenge inside the ring.
He takes both victory and defeat with good grace as he has been the victim of poor scoring on more than one occasion.

I would like to see someone get behind him like they have done with ADAMEK (these two shared one of the fights of the year in their first meeting and USS got jobbed in their Heavyweight rematch) and let him have a proper run at Heavyweight… He was thrown in at the deep end with FURY and nearly swam….

CUNNINGHAM = good guy, decent boxing skills, but lack of quality punch at Cruiserweight = no punch at Heavyweight level, unfortunately.

I truly believe HUGHIE FURY is the better FURY… TYSON FURY is getting all the praise because he talks a good show, but HUGHIE at this stage is the better propsect and more natural boxer/ fighter.

It’s good to see that the Furys had the sense to employ USS as a sparring partner…. IMHO he has more skills than HAYE, but just no firepower!!!!
