Easy work for Fury

10 07 2012

Tyson Fury continued his push towards a world heavyweight title after he stopped Vinny Maddalone in the 5th round.

Fury was never tested as he found his jab from the opening round, snapping Maddalone’s head back repeatedly.

Tyson almost finished the fight in the fourth as he landed big right hands to the body, which left Maddalone shaken up.

There was no rest for Maddalone in the fifth as Fury kept up the pace and after another fierce barrage, the referee thankfully stepped in to end the contest.

Following the figth, Fury called out pretty much everyone in the heavyweight division except David Price.

If Fury isn’t going to fight Price, then I’d like to see him try and get a fight with either Tomasz Adamek or Alexander Povetkin.

I think Fury would beat either of these guys and it would really put his name out there and get wider exposure for himself.

However I won’t be surprised if he takes a couple more contests like this over in America to try and build up his name over there.





Fury challenges for WBO Intercontinental title

7 07 2012

Tyson Fury will look to take a step closer to a heavyweight title shot when he faces Vinny Maddalone tonight.

Fury, unbeaten in 18 pro bouts, hopes that winning the WBO Intercontinental title will lead to a future title shot against either Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko.

Maddalone has won 35 of his 43 fights and has fought the likes of Holyfield, Adamek and Jean Marc Mormeck.

I don’t expect Maddalone to present too much of a challenge to Fury, who looks in fantastic shape. I fully expect Fury to dominate and knock Maddalone out within 7 rounds.

After this fight don’t be surprised to see Fury go after WBA (Regular) Heavyweight Champ Alexander Povetkin. I think Fury would easily beat Povetkin too.

But if he was to go after one of the Klitschko’s, he would be better served going after Vitali. Vitali isn’t the freshest champion now and he’s already looking towards a career in politics and Fury would be a real test for Vitali.

I’m not sure he’s ready for Wlad just yet and maybe a couple of fights against the likes of Povetkin and Vitali would give him that experience.

But the fight we all would love to see, would be him face off against fellow Brit David Price. It has the potential to be a really exciting domestic clash.

So after Fury defeats Maddalone tonight, I hope he can set up a fight with either Price, Povetkin or Vitali. I think Wlad is just a step too far at the moment but he could be ready after a couple more fights.

Sweet Science Prediction: 

Fury KO inside 7 rounds. This fight shouldn’t make Fury stretch himself too much and should allow him to look good.





Fury KO’s Rogan

21 04 2012

Tyson Fury clinched the Irish heavyweight title after stopping Martin Rogan in the fifth round.

Fury, adopting a southpaw stance for the first time, struggled to find his range in the first two rounds as Rogan came out all guns blazing.

Despite Rogan’s pressure throughout the first two rounds, Fury didn’t deter from his game plan and he found his range and timing in the third when he dropped Rogan with a straight left.

Rogan battled on but Fury, who was in complete control now, was tagging him at will.

Fury stepped things up in the fifth as he landed a body shot which sent the brave Rogan down to the canvas. Rogan managed to beat the count but the fight was over as Rogan’s trainer stepped in the ring to call the fight off.

After the fight, promoter Mick Hennessey believes that Fury is ready for the best but won’t go chasing the likes of Alexander Povetkin because they will call the shots.

Not sure what Mick Hennessey wants to do then because the only domestic competition that is out their for Fury is David Price. And if he’s not going to take the fight against Price, then the only option for Fury is to go after the likes of Povetkin because he is nowhere near ready for the Klitschko brothers.

It’s the fight all British boxing fans want to see and hopefully they can get it on.

 





Fury set for Pajkic test

15 10 2011

Fury eyes Commonwealth title

British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will fight undefeated Neven Pajkic for the Commonwealth title next month.

Both fighters are undefeated and they are set to fight at EventCity, Trafford Park on November 12th.

Fury should come through this fight with relative ease and add the Commonwealth title to his collection.

But once this fight is out the way; it will be time for Fury to really step up in class.

I’m not saying the Klitschko’s because they’re too far ahead of Fury but the likes of a Tomasz Adamek, Alexander Povetkin or even a Mike Perez.

Fury and his promoters, Hennessy Sports, have done a lot of talking regarding how good they believe Fury is; it’s time he proves it in the ring.
