Fury: David Price Has No Brains, Haye Wants To Act

By Ryan Burton

Tyson Fury (20-0) is less than two weeks away from his debut on U.S. soil against Steve "USS" Cunningham.  The fight takes place in New York on April 20th.  Over the past couple of years heavyweight contenders based out of the UK such as David Haye, David Price, Dereck Chisora and Fury have had more than a few verbal battles.  On the latest edition of BoxingScene Radio, I asked Fury for his opinion on why the UK based lot are so talkative.

"Take David Price out of it because he is like the Tin Man and Scarecrow because he has no brains.  Chisora, no one can dechiper what he says. So really it is just David Haye and I that talk a lot," Fury stated.

Haye recently announced that he is going to return to the ring this summer.  I asked the Irishman what he thinks about the former two-division champion's return and his ability as a fighter.
"He doesn't really fight a lot but when he does he doesn't want to fight anyone.  He won't fight any of the top contenders. He doesn't fight anybody that is any good and the one time he does he runs around the ring and wouldn't fight against Wladimir (Klitschko). I think that he wants to be an actor and he really doesn't want to be a fighter anymore," Fury told BoxingScene Radio.

Fury is looking at his upcoming fight against Cunningham as another step towards his goal of becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.  He will probably have more fans in the crowd than his American opponent even though the fight is being fought on U.S. soil.

"To be honest I don't really know what type of crowds Cunningham draws.  I don't know if he will have more fans than me. I know that the Irish will be out there to support me and I plan on putting on a great show for them," Fury stated.

[QUOTE=Weltschmerz;13233074]Fury telling it like it is about Haye. If Haye had real ambition in boxing he should try and get Fury or Price in the ring to prove he's Britain's best HW.[/QUOTE] Yeah, if Haye had real ambition he'd step…

My assessment of Tyson Fury. Up until today I had watched some highlights but the only Fury fight that I had actually watched was when he fought Chisora. I honestly don't remember much of that fight, I guess I lost…
