Fury: I’m beating Cunningham, Pulev and Wladimir

By Scott Gilfoid: Undefeated heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (20-0, 14 KO’s) was recently building himself up at a recent press conference to promote his IBF eliminator for the #2 spot against former cruiserweight and now heavyweight fringe contender Steve Cunningham (25-5, 12 KO’s) on April 20th at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Fury says he and his cousin Hughie Fury are the best heavyweights in the division, and his promoter Mick Hennessey already sees them as better heavyweights than the Klitschkos.

I’d never seen Hughie Fury fight before, but I checked him out on Youtube. Man, he really lacks power big time, and he’s incredibly slow. He’s like a slower, weaker version of Tyson Fury, if you can imagine that because Tyson has zero power and he’s already painfully slow.

Here’s some of the stuff Fury was saying at the press conference: “I’ve been the greatest heavyweight in the world the past 2. America is finally getting to see Tyson Fury. I’m going to do a job on Cunningham, take out [Kubrat] Pulev, take out Klitschko. He’s [Cunningham] going to run away basically, and I’m going to hunt him down. It has the potential to be a stinker because of his style. He’s going to try and make me miss. I’m faster than any cruiserweight or heavyweight out there. He can run but he can’t hide; where’s he going to go? The Klitschkos are taking easy fights. I said I’m more than ready to fight, but then he took the easy option again, the Italian fellow. What do I have to do? I’m fighting an eliminator now, a final eliminator, and then he’ll [Wladimir] probably retire, so good riddance to them. They’re just messing up the heavyweight division in my opinion. It’s strictly business for them. I’m definitely going to bring the heavyweight division back to the glory days. When I get the title, I’m going to take on all comers. I’m going to go on a bum of the month campaign. At the end of the day, I’m the only heavyweight, besides Hughie, that’s actually any good. They’re all pretenders. You’ve got two old age pensioners, the Klitschkos, 40-years-old, 37, 38-years-old, and they’re avoiding young, big men like me. I want Wladimir anytime, anyplace, anywhere, whether it’s in Germany, Belgium or Norway. There’s only going to be one winner and that’s me. I’m going to give Cunningham a good hiding, and then I’m going to show how to beat a Klitschko.”

As you can see, Fury seems pretty deluded about his own talent. He doesn’t stand a chance against the Klitschkos, and I see him getting embarrassed by Kubrat Pulev. As for his cousin Hughie, the talent just isn’t there. He’s just another light hitting slapper just like Fury. I can’t see him being any more than a bottom feeder one of these days in the top 15.
