Tyson Fury: “Steve Cunningham is better than Oleksandr Usyk”


Via Jack Tien Nam: Tyson Fury kicked off his campaign to demote IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk by commenting today that former IBF cruiser champion Steve Cunningham is a better boxer than he is.

Few boxing fans agree with Fury’s opinion that Cunningham is a better boxer than Usyk. When Fury defeated Cunningham, he lost to Tomasz Adamek and was defeated twice by Yoan Pablo Hernandez.

Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) could be the WBC Fury champion (32-0-1, 23 KOs) if he successfully defends his title against Derek Chisora ​​on Saturday night, May 3. 12 at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium in London.

Cunningham (30-9-1, 13 KOs) brutally knocked out a battered Fury with a right-hand swing to the head during the second round of the bout in April 2013.

Later in the fight, Fury used his left arm to hold Cunningham in place while hitting him with his right hand to knock him down in the seventh round.

Later, some fans complained that it was a dirty move by Fury to beat the much smaller and older Cuningham.

“He has had some success, but I think Steve Cunningham is probably a better boxer than Oleksandr Usyk. That’s just my opinion. I think Steve is really going to hit him,” Tyson Fury told Queensbury by Frank Warren about his belief that Steve Cunningham was a better cruiser fighter than Oleksandr Usyk.

“I am still here undefeated fourteen years later. Everyone who has this Usyk tool. He just wanted what I had like the rest of the world in boxing.

“They all want what the big GK has. immortality. I’ve had more knockouts than him [Usyk] fight. I won more belts than there are pants in his closet. I’ve been to more events than he probably has all the same.

“They have to take care of me. Big dogs, kings and emperors don’t care about the peasants of the department. They have to come to my table. The party is mine.

“I could invite him to the table to treat me, but whether they come or not is entirely up to them.

“Derek Chisora ​​doesn’t have what I want. Zero. I took his virginity record in 2011, then I gave him a good hide in the second fight in 2014, and then I will almost certainly let him hide on the 3rd. twelfth.

“To say he has anything that I want or need, he doesn’t. None of them. None of these fighters in the division had anything where I would say, ‘I want that’. I don’t want anything. All the parasites will be defeated,” Fury said.
