Fury not surprised by Pajkic's refusal to fight
TORONTO, ON - (NOVEMBER 3, 2010) It seems that the moment has gotten the best of Canadian Heavyweight champion Neven Pajkic. With the challenge of the UK/Ireland's Heavyweight sensation Tyson Fury for a December 18th showdown in Quebec City on the undercard of Jean Pascal-Bernard Hopkins ringing in his ears, Pajkic has turned tail, stating he'd rather take some time off than meet up on the most important Canadian fight card in the last 30 years.

"When I was ringside watching Pajkic's abysmal effort against Andreas Sidon last Saturday, I got to see a truly great Canadian champion in George Chuvalo," Fury said..
"If I was able to turn back time, and approach Mr. Chuvalo in his heyday as champion, and issue the same challenge I just gave to Pajkic, he'd never complain about fighting a sixth fight in a year. Chuvalo was a champion that Canadians are rightly proud of. Pajkic is an embarrassment to his title and Canadian fight fans."
According to Adam Harris, of Hennessy Sports, the company that promotes Fury, Pajkic is not only turning his back on fans in his own country, but he's also making a huge career blunder.
"We're offering Neven a chance to perform on the televised undercard of a show that will be seen by millions around the world, including on Showtime in the US, and he's holding out for another internet farce like that one he just had against Sidon?" Harris asked incredulously.
"He said he wont operate on our timeline. So I guess we're supposed to put Tyson's career on hold so that Pajkic can take a vacation."
"They should change his nickname from 'No Surrender,' to 'No Guts,' 'No Pride,' or, judging by his business acumen, 'No Clue.'"
Tyson Fury Calls Out Canadian Champion Neven Pajkic
England – (November 1, 2010) After sitting ringside Saturday night at Casino Rama, in Rama, Ontario, for Neven “No Surrender” Pajkic’s uninspired 8 round decision over 47 year-old Andreas Sidon, reigning undefeated English heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (12-0, 9 KO’s) was less than impressed, and wants to step into the ring with Pajkic on the December 18th Jean Pascal-Bernard Hopkins undercard in Quebec City, Quebec.
“That was pathetic,” Fury declared in the wake of Pajkic’s lacklustre showing against the aged German.
“Pajkic is supposed to be heavyweight champion of Canada, and he fights like that means nothing to him. I’m English champion, and I fight in a manner that does my title and country proud.”
“If he wants to see the difference between me and him firsthand, he’ll take me up on my challenge to meet on December 18 in Quebec City. I’ll show him the difference in his own backyard between a real champion and a joke.”
After Pajkic’s dismal victory Saturday over the inept Sidon, Fury and Pajkic exchanged some heated words ringside, which resulted in Pajkic meekly throwing a towel at the towering giant of proud Irish and British descent.
Adam Harris of Hennessy Sports, Fury’s promotional company, thinks it’s time for Pajkic to step up to a real challenge, especially if it’s in the country he’s supposed to be representing as champion.
“If I was Neven, I’d take the fight with Tyson. How could he not? But then again, I have pride.” Harris said of the proposed battle on the Jean Pascal-Bernard Hopkins undercard at Quebec City’s Pepsi Collisee.
“If he doesn’t take this fight, he should stick his head into the sand like a big ostrich.”
According to Fury, should the fight happen, it won’t last long at all.
“Don’t blink, because you’ll miss the knockout of the year. I’m a whirlwind, and Pajkic will feel the full force of Tyson Fury.”
