Former world heavyweight champion Tyson fury (29-0-1, 20 KO’s) told, who finds the most difficult opponent in his career. According to the “Gypsy king”, the hardest thing is he was not from DevTeam Wilder or Wladimir Klitschko, and with American Steve Cunningham, whom he met in new York in 2013 and won by knockout, but previously having been knocked down. The word fury brings Boxing Scene.

“I wouldn’t say that the fight with Wilder was the most difficult in my career. To be honest, actually it was one of the easiest fights for me. Except for the two knockdowns, it was a pretty one-sided fight. I had much more difficult fights, and Wilder was not exactly the most difficult of my opponents. The most difficult was Steve Cunningham, former world champion in crmservice. We fought in 2013 at Madison Square Garden, and it was my most difficult fight.

At that time I never met someone like Steve. He has been the IBF title in crmservice and seven successful defenses or something like that. It was consolidated with the champion, which is much superior in workmanship to any of my previous opponents. Very slick and awkward, he was a very good boxer, and it was really difficult to get into.

There was no underestimation. He was quite tall and heavy like a heavyweight. Perhaps higher and more of the same Evander Holyfield. These are usually called small supertiny, but actually they are really large. Just the current heavyweight at all huge.”

February 23, fury will fight in a rematch against Wilder. For this fight you can check on our website from 05:00 Kyiv time.
