Fury: I Will KO Klitschko and Pulev Like Cunningham!

By Joe Delaney, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY is aiming to ­destroy Wladimir ­Klitschko and be crowned king of the world.

Fury brilliantly responded to ­being floored in the second round by knocking out Steve ­Cunningham in the seventh at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.

This IBF eliminator win – taking his unbeaten record to 21 – means only Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev now stands between the big Mancunian and a shot at world title glory.

The younger Klitschko brother is firmly in his sights though, as Fury roared: “I have arrived!”

He added: “I can guarantee one thing and that is excitement.

“When Wladimir Klitschko fights me I will knock him out just like I knocked Steve ­Cunningham out.

“If I have to go through Pulev first then fine – I’ll knock him out too. I couldn’t give a s*** what they think about me, I just hope they sign a contract and fight.

“That’s what I do – Tyson Fury is the name, fighting’s the game.

“I want him next and I am ­going to do to him what has been done to him three times before – I am going to knock him out.”

This was Fury’s US debut but not everyone was impressed.

American critics and veteran Cunningham accused the 24-year-old, who was penalised with a point deduction in the fifth round for butting, of dirty tricks.

The mood soured post fight but Fury couldn’t care less.

He added: “What was I supposed to do – let him hit me?

“I was in a dogfight and he couldn’t hack it.” Promoter Mick Hennessy reckons this was the ­moment that Fury ­finally arrived on the world stage.

He said: “Tyson definitely showed on Saturday night that he’s got what it takes to go on and become a world champion.

“He’s just 24 and every fight is a learning fight, so when he goes for the title he will be ready.

“He would love to fight the ­Klitschkos because he fights better against the bigger fighters.

“They are perfect for him.”

I remember when Fury's first few fights appeared on youtube. Everyone was making fun of him in the comments section because he was fighting midgets and obese bald men. But the greatest thing was that Fury actually responded in the…

Fury is a funny guy, but he is also a hilarious KO waiting to happen. I like the guy, he gives good entertainment.
