Tony Thompson: I Would Expose Tyson Fury Easily!

David Price conqueror Tony Thompson has vowed to make easy work of another rising British heavyweight in Tyson Fury.

The American stepped back into the ring this this past weekend in Istanbul, where he won a twelve round decision over Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis for the WBC International heavyweight championship.

The heavyweight veteran, who upset the odds by twice beating the highly touted Price, believes he can do the same thing to Fury and has questioned the level of competition the Manchester man has taken on so far.

“He [Fury] is a loudmouth guy, he’s talking his way into big fights and hasn’t done anything. At least David Price’s people had the gumption and balls to put him in with a live heavyweight. Tyson has never been in the ring with anyone like me,” said Thompson.

“All of his opponents pose a threat to him simply because he can’t fight. But they haven’t put him in there with anyone who is capable of exposing him, although a few people almost did it. If [Steve] Cunningham was a legitimate heavyweight he would have stopped Fury easily. A couple of other guys would have beat his ass,” he said.

A fight with the 25-year-old Fury also presents an easier task than the one Price posed and he has called on Team Fury, who are preparing for Dereck Chisora on July 26th, to make the fight happen.

“He’s just been mouthing off about me and I’m the type of guy if you want to talk that trash let’s do it. I’m not running from anybody. If he wants to do it, let’s do it. Tell Peter Fury, or whoever is running the show there,” said Thompson.

“I think it would be a good fight for the fans. He’s not that great of a fighter but he’s a huge guy and will pose a challenge to anybody but I will expose him easily. As a matter of fact, I think it’s an easier fight than the David Price fight,” he stated.

Fury would drop him with a punch to the guts. Thompson should fight Jennings, Fury is fighting Chisora.

I'd take 2008 Thompson over Fury. 2014 Thompson? Even if he did beat him there's not much chance it wouldn't be one hard hard HARD night. My opinion.
