title What next for Fury?

By Dan Henderson: Tyson Fury extended his unbeaten run to 19-0 with 14 KO’s after pounding American Vinny Maddalone for five rounds at the Clevedon Arena, Somerset. It was an easy fight for Fury as Maddalone offered little in terms of offense nor defense, it was just some guy not very many people had heard of and not very skilled getting punched repeatedly for five rounds, it reminded of the first Rocky film where Rocky beats on a dead cow it was a pointless fight against a guy not even ranked inside the top 100 by Boxrec.
