Tyson Fury To Return on April 20, Eyes Cunningham

Former cruiserweight world champion Steve Cunningham is being considered as a possible opponent for Tyson Fury's American debut in New York.

Fury had been hoping for a St Patrick's Day fight on 17th of March, but the bout has been pushed back to the 20th of April and Cunningham could be in the opposite corner.

The American dropped a disputed points defeat to Tomasz Adamek in December and the Fury camp want to make a big impact in the US with a convincing win over Cunningham.

Trainer Peter Fury told "The date of April 20 is now 100% for Tyson and we are looking at getting Steve Cunningham or one of two others for Tyson's American debut.

"We have been in training now for a March fight so we tried to get a fight in between in Germany, but (promoter Mick) Hennessy said not possible so we will be easing Tyson back a bit.

"A four month camp is too long, but we are looking forward to getting out there and making a statement in the USA.

"I think a fight with Cunningham is a good fight, especially when everyone says he beat Adamek. So if Tyson does a good job on him, it will send a message to everyone and have no doubts he will do."

[QUOTE=hougigo]No idea why Cunningham is still trying to be a heavyweight[/QUOTE] well look at it this way the guy has 4 losses and is starting to get up there in age. he can make more money as a heavyweight so think of this as "one last run"

[QUOTE=WladimirK]ring weight 257, sounds a bit heavy[/QUOTE] when you think Wlad comes in 247-249 and is 3 inches shorter, 257 seems about right.

Yet again Fury makes no attempt to fight the fighters he's been talking crap about.
