Tyson, Hughie Fury Vow To End Rule of The Klitschkos

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

COUSINS Tyson and Hughie Fury have vowed to keep the world heavyweight title belts in the family after ending the reign of the Klitschkos.

Ukranian brothers Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko have dominated the division for nine years and between them hold all the world titles.

But Tyson, 24, is not a fan of WBC king Vitali, 41, and WBA-IBF-WBO champ Wladimir, 36, who faces Italian Francesco Pianeta on May 4.

The 6ft 9in Morecambe fighter makes his US debut against American Steve Cunningham at Madison Square Garden Theatre on April 20 in an IBF title eliminator. Victory will leave him one fight away from Wladimir.

Hughie, 18, will make his professional debut in New York on the same bill as Tyson, who says the Brits will take over.

He said: “In a few years time we will have all the belts and not the Klitschkos. We mean business. We are going to be the Furious Two. We will have the world title belts between us. You have heard of the Klitschko brothers, now you have the Furys.

“I’ve been sparring with Hughie and he has got a chin like steel, the heart of a Fury, the determination to succeed and he can hit.

“These Klitschkos have been taking easy fights. They have no flair. It’s all strictly business.”

The most annoying thing about about Fury is that the odd person is actually starting to say they rate him. I've watched i think his last 12 fights and he is just an awful heavyweight who will get found out…

Still not convinced Tyson will reach world title level. Need to see him in with someone that can punch.

never seen the Hughie one fight yet but what's left of Vit beats the present Fury Vit just won't be around much longer, so it won't happen and Wlad would probably KO Fury, that fight might happen late this yr…
