Headline-grabbing heavyweight Tyson Fury, 24, can try all the tricks in the motor-mouthing book but he will not get under Steve Cunningham‘s skin. The 36-year-old American, an experienced cruiserweight seeking a title shot in boxing’s glamour division, has claimed Tyson’s trash talk efforts are all futile as they will not divert him from his original game-plan.

“He wants to get under my skin with his antics, imitating Ali, doing all these tricks,” Cunningham (25-5-0, 12ko) said during an open media workout this week. “He wants me to just come in and punch him in the mouth, but I will stick to the game plan and not get out of control. It’s all about the game plan.”

The two clash on Saturday, April 20 at the hallowed Theatre inside Madison Square Garden, New York. Whilst Fury (20-0-0, 14ko) is no stranger to taking his show on the road having fought in Quebec, Canada in 2010, his tussle versus Cunningham will be his first on American canvas. And Cunningham is aware Fury intends on using him as his ticket to trans-Atlantic stardom.

“We’re getting ready for the best Tyson Fury that the world has ever seen,” he said. “He can say what he wants to say. It’s only going to make him look bad when he gets beaten by a supposed light heavyweight. I’m going to utilise my strengths… we’ve worked on my weaknesses. So you’re going to see some different things. I feel great. I feel strong. I feel energetic. I’m excited about this fight.”
