Tyson Fury Focused on Impressing American Fight Fans

British heavyweight Tyson Fury has vowed to take "no prisoners" when he faces Steve Cunningham in New York on April 20.

Fury (20-0 14KOs) will be looking to make a statement on his United States debut as he closes in on a potential world title shot.

The 6ft 9in fighter has promised that no shortcuts have been taken as he prepares to lock horns with 36-year-old former two-time world cruiserweight champion Cunningham (25-2 12 KOs) at the world famous Madison Square Garden.

"Camp has been going really well, I've had great sparring - everything has gone really well - no stone has been left unturned, so no excuses," said Fury.

"We've given ourselves plenty of time to prepare, we've been over here now for six weeks, so that's more than enough time to acclimatise and get used to the time difference.

"This is a great opportunity for me to come to the US and showcase my boxing skills at a big venue such as Madison Square Garden."

Fury and his team have based their training camp at Casino Lac-Leamy, Ottawa, Canada, ahead of the contest, where they have had access to state of the art training facilities and running trails.

"We've not done much different with preparation because for the last three fights we left no stone unturned - we've been working on different gameplans for a lighter fighter, such as Steve Cunningham, a speed guy, and we just hope it all goes to plan on the night," added Fury.

"The fight fans better be prepared for a good old fashioned fight, because I'm coming to town and I'm taking no prisoners.

"This is what you've all been waiting for - the heavyweight champion of Ireland coming to the East Coast.

"Steve Cunningham, you're in big trouble ... I hope you've been training really hard because I know I have and it's fight time."

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;13229056]Again...can one get more popular than, say, Manny Pacquiao? He wasn't born in America yet that hasn't stopped him from becoming a huge star. So obviously that isn't the reason. In my opinion it's the robotic Eastern Euro style that…

[QUOTE=Ulver;13226397]Not when he was fighting. He even got booed out of the arena in Los Angeles on the last night of his storied career. And booed when he returned there as a spectator for the Corrie Sanders vs Vitali Klitschko…

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan;13228419]I disagree simply because I believe that if the Klit bros had been born in America they be as popular as Chevrolet's and apple pie regardless of their style.[/QUOTE] They'd be popular for sure...and appreciated more. But there must…
