Fight Pick & Preview - Fury vs. Cunningham:
On April 20 at MSG, rising young heavyweight contender Tyson Fury takes on former cruiserweight kingpin Steve Cunningham. This will be the British Fury’s first stateside performance and probably his toughest test thus far in his young career. The 24-year-old unbeaten heavyweight will be facing a slick, though severely outsized, opponent in “USS” Cunningham, who was denied rightful victory in his last bout against Tomasz Adamek.
Fury is nice little X-factor in the heavyweight division. He’s 6’9” and has youth on his side at 24 against the 36-year-old Cunningham. Fury has grown from domestic British prospect to legitimate world contender. He beat top guys from his region, including a win over then-unbeaten Dereck Chisora. In his last win, he beat American contender Kevin Johnson on points.
