Towering heavyweight Tyson Fury (20-0-0, 14ko) takes his pugilistic tour to the historic Theatre at Madison Square Garden, New York City on Saturday, April 20 and faces Philly prizefighter Steve Cunningham (25-5-0, 12ko), a former cruiserweight champion. Fury may have a six inch height advantage but this is his tallest order since turning pro, but he needed no second invitation to send his rival a warning…

Hernandez troubled Cunningham during their duel

“This is a great opportunity for me to come to the US and showcase my talents at a great venue such as Madison Square Garden,” said Tyson, a 24-year-old combination puncher cut from Gypsy cloth. “The fight fans better be prepared for a good old fashioned fight, because I’m coming to town and I’m taking no prisoners.”

Fury continued: “Steve Cunningham, you’re in big trouble, I hope you’ve been training really hard because I know I have and it’s fight time. We’ve given ourselves plenty of time to prepare, we’ve been [in Canada] now for six weeks, so that’s more than enough time to acclimatise and get used to the time difference.”

Promoter Mick Hennessy is delighted that the April 20 also gifts him an opportunity to showcase a second Fury to American audiences, Hughie (1-0-0, 1ko): “I’m delighted to deliver this fight to a transatlantic terrestrial TV audience,” said Hennessy.

“Tyson Fury is going to shake up the world of heavyweight boxing and Hughie Fury is going to show why he’s such a special, young, heavyweight talent – and they’ve both got the biggest platform possible to do it on.”

The fight will also be broadcast by Channel 5 in Britain.
