Tyson Fury Discusses Training Camp For Cunningham

By Ryan Burton

Undefeated heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (20-0, 14KOs) made an appearance on this week's edition of BoxingScene Radio to talk to us about his April 20th showdown against former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham.  The fight will be televised by NBC and will be Fury's U.S. debut as the fight takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York.

The Irish fighter normally holds his training camps in Belgium but decided to hold this camp at Casino Lac-Leamy, Ottawa, Canada to get used to the different time zone.

"We decided to do the training camp in Canada because of the time change. It's a 5 hour difference. We can go to Ottawa instead of New york to be away from the media," Fury explained.

The 6'9" Fury has a considerable size advantage over his American opponent. He said that they worked on facing a smaller opponent in their training camp.

"Its pretty obvious how to train for him. He's a lighter fighter who relies on speed.  It's obvious what a boxer (like Cunningham) has to do against a big fighter like me," Fury told BoxingScene Radio.

Fury is excited to be fighting at the famed Madison Square Garden but understands that getting the victory is the most important thing. He said that he is just concentrating on leaving the ring a winner. 

"It's a good feeling to fight at Madison Square Garden because a lot of champions have fought there but to be honest with you it doesn't matter where I fight. It could be in a hotel room with 10 people and at the end of the day I have to do my job in the ring. Then I go home to my wife and kids when I'm done," Fury stated.
