Steward: Tyson Fury is The Next Heavyweight Superstar!

By Mark Vester

According to veteran trainer Emanuel Steward, rising British prospect Tyson Fury (13-0, 9KOs) has the goods to become the next dominating figure in the heavyweight division. Steward has worked with two of the most dominating heavyweights of the last twenty years, Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko. In the last few months, Steward began training Fury, and based on what he's seen in the ring, he expects Fury to develop in the same fashion as Lewis and Klitschko.

Once the Klitschko brothers retire and Fury begins to receive more experience, Steward believes the towering 6'9 22-year-old boxer will dominate heavyweights.

"Tyson Fury has the ability and in my expectations - the next superstar dominant heavyweight and in much along the lines of Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko. With the way that he's progressing now, I believe that he can be the complete package for the heavyweight division. His talent, a good looking guy and a very colorful personality. I think he can be a tremendous shot in the arm for the heavyweight division in the future," Steward told the Ringside Boxing Show.

He looks trash. You can tell as soon as someone lands a big shot, he'll be on Zab Judah drive, looking like a maccarinelli drunk, ready to have his lights turned off Roid Jones style.
