Tyson Fury talking about his upcomming fight against Steve Cunningham that will take place at Madison Square Garden, New York. Also he talks about his cousin, 18 year old Hughie Fury who has turned pro with Hennesey Promotions.
Steve Cunningham has a tall order in 6-foot-9 heavyweight contender Tyson Fury on April 20, but the former two-time crusierweight titleholder is confident he’ll win the NBC-televised fight. “My heart and boxing ability is bigger than 6-9,” he told RingTV’s Bill Emes.
