By James Tooze: Since the first fight of Tyson Fury’s career we have been hearing about the next big thing in Heavyweight boxing, who will eventually inherit the position at the top of the division that has for so long been monopolized by the Klitschko brothers. However, the reality has been that throughout Fury’s career, the hype has massively outweighed the performances.
By Benny James: After a recent article published on this site about how boxing is NOT dead, I thought I would write a series of articles on problems I think need to be addressed in boxing is the sport is going to grow again.
By Nick Toft: For some it was just a pointless exercise against an aging heavy bag. For me it was worse than a sparring session and Tyson Fury can’t of learned a great deal against his over the hill and gun shy opponent.
By John F. McKenna (McJack): 6’9” crowd pleaser Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KO’s) now says that he will be the fighter to end the long dominance of the Klitscko’s. This after saying just a few months ago that he was not ready to fight either of the Klitschko brothers. Tyson easily defeated New York journeyman Vinny Maddalone (35-8, 26 KO’s) in an impressive five round stoppage.
By William Mackay: After destroying another older fighter last Saturday night with with a 5th round TKO win over 38-year-old journeyman Vinny Maddalone, undefeated heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KO’s) says he’s not ready to fight heavyweight prospect David Price, and wants to wait until one or them are world champions before he’ll take the fight.

By Scott Gilfoid: Despite undefeated Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KO’s) mentioning that he’ll soon be facing one of the Klitschkos, he’s now saying he won’t bother fighting them until a year from now when he’s good and ready.
By Scott Gilfoid: IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KO’s) is kicking around the idea of defending his straps against unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KO’s) in 2013, if Fury is willing to step up and take the challenge, which I highly doubt.
By Simon Hirst: Saturday 7th July 2012 was meant to be the night two British lions roared to success after proving their credentials and intentions to go on and challenge for world honours. That was the script. It seems two certain Americans, in their own opposite ways, had not read this script. More than that, they did everything to ruin it.
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.
