Tyson Fury shows he has the heart of a champion in beating Cunningham

Latest Steve Cunningham Tyson FuryBy Mark Calooke: Tonight, unbeaten Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) vs. Steve Cunningham (25-6, 12 KO’s) was heavyweight boxing at its best. Toe to toe big, big punches, knock downs, knock outs and grit.

Steve Cunningham has had 8 world title fights and never been stopped. He certainly was Tyson Fury’s biggest test to date. But Tyson Fury was to good for the veteran.

Although Fury was the better boxer. Cunningham did have moments of brilliance. A big right hook in the second round saw big Tyson Fury sink to the canvas. it was a tremendous shot and the kind that could smash down walls. Cunningham, the underdog, looked like he had been given the pot of gold. But Fury got back up and recovered quickly. Another good punch came in round 4 but had little effect. After that is was all downhill for the American. The end eventually came in round 7 when Fury stopped Cunning with a thunderous right hand.

Fury’s ability and character seemed to impress the crowd on his American debut. The crowd was behind him despite the fact that he was fighting that man. No one can accuse the boxing fraternity state side of not being accommodating.

I don’t think Tyson Fury is ready for a Klitschko. First he needs to face his popular rival, David Price. It was good to see Fury take a few shots and go down. He needs more fights that will prepare him for digging deep, because the Klitschko’s will force him to bring everything he has to the ring. But aside from Price, Wladimir and Vitali to one is going to be beating Tyson Fury any time soon. They are the only tall heavyweights that are any good. It will take a man with size to take away his natural advantage.
