Watch the video filmed by Kugan Cassius over at IfilmTV (scroll below to find) if you cannot be bothered to read about the highlights today’s Tyson Fury-Wladimir Klitschko press conference gave us in Manchester, but either way, fans have to agree: Fury, out of shape (by his own admission) and not at all in love with boxing (far from it, Fury said today that he “hates” boxing) simply does not care what anyone thinks about … Read Article
Heavyweight king Tyson Fury will not care one jot, but David Haye – the man who twice pulled out of a fight with Fury – claims newly crowned IBF heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua would have too much for Fury if they fought “right now.” Speaking with Sky Sports, Haye went as far as to state how he doesn’t think Fury “has a shot in hell” against Joshua.… Read Article
It’s not at all surprising, but heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, upon hearing like the rest of us who newly crowned IBF heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua will be facing in his first title defence, decided to put the boot in. Taking to his oft-used Twitter page shortly after reading how Joshua will defend against Dominic Breazeale on June 25th, Fury started off by saying we should all give Joshua a break, as he is still learning … Read Article
Though he has often been overly critical of the Klitschko brothers, Wladimir especially, deep down Tyson Fury respects both men as great champions. The trash-talk is back in full force right now, as is to be expected as Fury is getting ready to square off with Wladimir for a second time in his first title defence; so don’t expect any kind words from Tyson when he speaks about Klitschko. But Hughie Fury, Tyson’s cousin – … Read Article
Had he managed to avoid disaster against Tony Thompson and, last time out, Erkan Teper, Liverpool’s David Price would arguably have been right in the mix to challenge heavyweight ruler Tyson Fury in a fight or three’s time. Price, who holds an amateur win over Fury (“I’m still the last Englishman to beat him, by the way,” he told Sky Sports recently) launches his latest comeback on May 29th and he says he still harbors … Read Article
By his own admission, heavyweight champ Tyson Fury struggled to remain motivated after his big November win over Wladimir Klitschko. The new champion piled out weight, wasn’t really interested in talking about boxing and even suggested he might retire, claiming he had done everything he had set out to do. True, we never know when Fury is being serious, but some fans wondered if the hard to figure out 27-year-old meant it when he said … Read Article

Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has begun his training for the July 9th return fight with Wladimir Klitschko, with Fury entering camp for day-one earlier today. And the 27-year-old, by his own admission, really is a heavyweight, with plenty of excess weight to lose before the fight. Tyson will be training alongside his cousin, unbeaten prospect Hughie Fury, under the watchful eye of trainer and uncle Peter.
Peter Fury wrote in a Tweet earlier today how, … Read Article
In the words of one boxing pundit, it would have been “promotional suicide” for rival British heavyweight stars to have fought on the same night. Yet for a time, it looked as though the world heavyweight king and the newly crowned IBF heavyweight champ would indeed go head-to-head on rival shows on July 9th. But today, in speaking with BBC Sport, Joshua said it is “most unlikely” he will now box on July 9th.… Read Article
