Fury: Steward Says I Hit Harder Than Both Klitschkos

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight 6'9 giant Tyson Fury is ready to prove that he's ready for the best of his division. Before he can move forward, he has to defeat unbeaten Dereck Chisora in tonight's clash for the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles at Wembley. Fury has briefly trained with Emanuel Steward, who trains WBO/WBA/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury told Sky Sports News that Steward gave him credit for being a harder puncher than either Klitschko brother, Wladimir and older brother Vitali. He doesn't like Chisora and the two boxers nearly traded punches at a recent boxing event. Fury wants to punish Chisora in the fight.

"I'm going to hit him with more punches than he's been hit with in the last 10 fights he's had. I'm young, ambitious, big, strong and fast and I can punch as well," said Fury. "I've been in the Klitschko camp and I've sparred with him first hand. I know how to beat him. I've trained with Emanuel Steward, he says I punch harder than both Klitschkos.

[QUOTE=Adam Konitz;10884246]:lol1: :lol1: This guy. He can hit pretty good, but he needs to keep developing that power and[B] keep working on his control of range (which will enable him to get the right extension on more of his punches).[/QUOTE][/B]…
