Fury: That Was a Good Hook To The Side of My Jaw

Tyson Fury recovered from a second round knockdown to knock out Steve Cunningham in the seventh round of their heavyweight clash at Madison Square Garden. It was only the second time in the Briton's career he had had to pick himself up off the canvas, but he recovered strongly to go 21-0 and set up a final eliminator against Kubrat Pulev - with the winner of that contest to face Wladimir Klitschko.

This fight was billed as Fury's toughest test with Cunningham a two-time world champion at cruiserweight, with eight world title fights behind him. And it all looked to be a step too far after an uppercut put him on the canvas in the second before his own uppercut followed by a sickening right hook two minutes, 55 seconds into the seventh round ended the contest.

"It's one of those things, you can't go swimming and not get wet - he put on a good fight," Fury said. "I got caught with a big swinging right. You have to get up, this is a learning experience. That was a good hook to the side of the jaw, it was a matter of time until I got hold of him and when I caught him it was curtains."

I have to say Fury disappointed me yesterday. I still think he's talented, but the focus and consistency he had against Johnson was long gone. Steve is an excellent fighter and veteran, but by no means does he fit well…

[QUOTE=Earl Hickey;13274940]in all seriousness Fury actually went backwards in this fight, he neglected his jab and was like a rudderless oil tanker, but he got it done. Hopefully Peter puts him on blast because a lot better is needed from…

[QUOTE=Earl Hickey;13275808]no but he has better inside game, combination punching and switch hitting. but what's the point in arguing you will never change your mind. We'll see though, we'll see[/QUOTE] Inside game? Not really, it's easy brawling with a much…
