Tyson Fury Vows: I'm The Best Fighter on The Planet!

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of Daily Star

TYSON FURY flipped last night in a coin toss row with fight rival Steve Cunningham.

The outspoken Manchester man faces the ­American at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night in an IBF world heavyweight title eliminator.

Promoters said they would toss a coin to ­determine who would enter the ring second in the New York showdown.

But Fury refused and the dispute was still ­raging last night, with the ex-British and Commonwealth ­champion standing firm.

The boxer who enters the ring last in a non-title fight is ­considered to be the main ­attraction.

“There’s only one star here and it’s not Steve Cunningham,” roared Fury.

“This is the Tyson Fury Road Show and Steve Cunningham is the opponent, a stepping stone.

"Why should he go in the ring and be the man? I am bringing this show to town.

“It’s all about me, me, me, me. I wasn’t informed about spinning any coin. If I wanted to go gambling, I’d go to a casino.

“I’m the man to beat. I’m the best fighter on the planet.”

If Fury, 24, takes his unbeaten record to 21 wins by beating ­Cunningham, 36, he will be No.2 ­contender for the IBF crown and set up a summer final eliminator against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev.

Come through that test and he will be guaranteed a crack at Ukrainian star Wladimir Klitschko, who holds the IBF, WBA and WBO crowns.

And he is determined to let Wladimir and older brother Vitali, the WBC champion, know that they are on his radar.

Fury said: “My name is Tyson. I’m named after Mike Tyson so he must have influenced my father.

“I don’t know many people who are named Wladimir because of Wladimir or Vitali because of Vitali. You don’t grow up wanting to be like them.

“But you did grow up wanting to be Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and all these other guys.”

Tyson Fury’s fight against Steve ­Cunningham is live on ­ Channel 5 on Saturday night.

Lol @ justifying Fury ducking Price by basically saying he lost to Thompson! That is like the tards who go on like Floyd is the one who knocked Manny out. Mind you at least Floyd fought and beat Marquez.
