Former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham (25-5, 12KOs) is more than ready for the upcoming tall order on April 20th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Cunningaham will face undefeated 6'9 heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (20-0, 14KOs), who makes his debut in the United States.

"We know he talks a lot. He has a lot of power. He has a lot of weight. He has a lot of height over me. Like I said, he's got a lot of advantages, but that's why we have a great team with brother Naazim [Richardson] and Buddy Osbourne, who are going to come up with a great plan that I'm going to stick to and in Jesus' name we're going to to work. I'm going to go in there and go to work," Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.

Cunningham says Fury is the newest arrival in the long line of UK boxers who want to make it big in the United States, but says this time a big mistake was made.

"That's what most of these [British fighters do], Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan, they came over here and made it big. He's coming over here to make it big. I think he made a mistake accpeting this fight with me, but he's a warrior and that's what warriors do. As far as the hometown advantage, that went out the window in my last fight. I fought Adamek in my home state [and lost a controversial decision]. I'm going in there with that mind set to work hard," Cunningham said.

The good big man always beats the good small man! Steve was a fantastic cruiserweight champ but this is the heavyweights steve! I imagine if tyson sticks to a good game plan he should at least win this won on points or maybe even a late stoppage.

Cunningham is right. Cunningham will soundly beat Fury.

Cunningham has a very shot in this fight. He's the better boxer and a lot faster. I don't know if he can handle the weight disadvantage though Fury is a huge man.

A lot of pressure on Fury now since Price got demolished.

This is another step up for Fury. Exciting to see what he does, he boxed Johnson pretty well, but he will maybe try to simply bully Cunningham.
