Fury: Cunningham in Trouble, I'm Taking No Prisoners!

GATINEAU, Quebec, Canada -- Heavyweight sensation Tyson Fury vowed to take "no prisoners" as he held an open media workout at Final Round Boxing Gym, Ottawa, Canada.

With less than three weeks to go until he faces 36-year-old, former two-time world cruiserweight champion, Steve "USS" Cunningham (25-2, 12 KOs), at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, New York, the 6'9'' Irish heavyweight looked relaxed and assured as he opened his training camp to the media.

Boasting a perfect record of 20-0, with 14 knockouts, Tyson put on a display of shadow boxing and pad work, before making himself available to the press for questions.

"Camp has been going really well, I've had great sparring - everything has gone really well - no stone has been left unturned, so no excuses," Tyson said.

"We've given ourselves plenty of time to prepare, we've been over here now for six weeks, so that's more than enough time to acclimatise and get used to the time difference.

"This is a great opportunity for me to come to the US and showcase my boxing skills at a big venue such as Madison Square Garden."

Fury and his team have based their training camp at Casino Lac-Leamy, Ottawa, Canada, ahead of the contest, where they have had access to state of the art training facilitIes and running trails.

"We've not done much different with preparation because for the last three fights we left no stone unturned - we've been working on different gameplans for a lighter fighter, such as Steve Cunningham, a speed guy, and we just hope it all goes to plan on the night," Tyson said.

"The fight fans better be prepared for a good old fashioned fight, because I'm coming to town and I'm taking no prisoners.

"This is what you've all been waiting for; the heavyweight champion of Ireland coming to the East Coast.

"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."

The pair meet at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, Saturday April 20, broadcast live on network television on NBC.

[QUOTE=Ulver;13217153]Not as a heavyweight he isn't. I suppose Mayweather is better than Fury, too, but he wouldn't beat him either. I'm sorry, but size is part of the equation here -- along with skill. Size never did much for Julius…
