Fury promises fireworks against Cunningham as Klitschko beckons
Heavyweights Tyson Fury (20-0) and Steve Cunningham (25-5) met face to face at the final press conference, on Wednesday, at Legends Bar NYC in anticipation for their Saturday afternoon encounter at Madison Square Garden Theatre this weekend.
The 12-round official eliminator will determine which competitor will move on against Kubrat Pulev with the winner facing IBF world champion Wladimir Klitschko.
"Training camp has been really good and I've had good sparring partners," said Fury. "This is how it's going to go, Fury comes out jabbing, Cunningham is running then boom, Spark out!! That's all your going to see. There's only one star here and it's not Steve Cunningham, this is the Tyson Fury roadshow.
I'm the undefeated one, I'm bringing this show to town, without me there is no fight. Steve Cunningham is a stepping stone."
The 36-year-old American is a former two-time cruiserweight champion but suffered a controversial defeat to Tomasz Adamek in his second heavyweight title fight last December.
"The training camp is closed," he said. "All the talking is done. Tyson Fury is Tyson Fury, he's a good fighter. We've watched the tapes, he's tall, agile and it's a great challenge. For the past two and a half months, I've been eating, sleepiing and dreaming Tyson Fury."
