Tyson Fury vs. Vinny Maddalone Finalized For July 7th

London - Vinny Maddalone, the Italian Stallion from New York, will be travelling to the UK and has told fans “Don’t Blink” as he's looking to be the first to beat the 6ft 9inch Irish Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, when the pair square off at the Hand Arena, Clevedon, Somerset on Saturday 7th July.

The 12 round international heavyweight contest promoted by Hennessy Sports in association with Sanigar Events and Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing will be broadcast live on Channel 5.

Maddalone who boasts 35 wins out of 43 fights, with 26 of these coming by way of knockout, has previously fought elite fighters Evander Holyfield, Tomasz Adamek, Jean Marc Mormeck and Denis Boytsov and is looking forward to making his UK debut against Irish Champion, Fury on 7th July.

“I’m Looking forward to fighting in England.” said Maddalone

“The Brits may be rooting for him in the beginning but I guarantee they will be cheering for me by the end of the night.”

The real life Rocky Balboa was recently described by America writer Jack Hirsch in a recent article in Boxing News, as being one of the most exciting fighters in boxing right now.“Perhaps the pound-for-pound lists have it all wrong. Instead of rating the best fighters, maybe the public would be better served if they listed the most exciting. Vinny Maddalone would top that heap.”

Vinny said “I promise to give everything I’ve got—the Brits are going to experience one hell of a fight and I plan on making lots of new fans.”

Tyson Fury who is currently in training camp in Essen, Belgium said “He’s a good opponent, a real tough guy, who leaves nothing in the changing room, he certainly comes to fight!

Training has gone well and I’m in the best shape of my life and I’m looking forward to some good rounds and after I beat him maybe we can go out and get something to eat.”

Vinny Maddalone added, “I respect Tyson Fury, hats off because he shows lots of balls. I’m really happy for this opportunity.  Two guys with balls will make for a great fight.”

Michael Borao of Borao Entertainment (Vinny’s Agent) said “Vinny is a real life Rocky—British fans are in for a real treat.”

The President of Star Boxing, Joe DeGuardia said “Fury-Maddalone should be a slugfest.  Vinny is like the fictional ‘Rocky’ and has the heart of a lion.  The fans are in for a treat with this exciting fight and I congratulate Hennessy Sports and Channel 5 for giving the fans in Britain a fight that promises to be a war.”

Supporting Tyson Fury vs. Vinny Maddalone in front of a 3,000 strong crowd at the Hand Arena, will be middleweight sensation Chris Eubank Jnr in his 5th pro fight and British champion Lee Haskins from Bristol, who is challenging Darlington’s former British champion Stuart Hall for the vacant European Bantamweight title.

The undercard will also feature former British Light welterweight champion Lenny Daws vs. Bridgewater’s Dean Mills, Tyson’s cousin Phill Fury, Bristol fighters Michael Graydon and Ricky Pow, Steve Bodger from Weston Super-Mare and Tamuka Mucha from Reading.

And making his UK debut will be the Hennessy Sports promoted Canadian Welterweight Champion Samuel Vargas.

Maddalone was a solid opponent on here when Adamek fought him iirc? Adamek is as much of a joke as Fury.
