Tyson fury is one big hype job - dominate like Lewis and Wlad ? Come off it Manny - It maybe boxing blasphemy to say it but the man who gave the world Tommy Hearns and the kronk stable is just way too wrong with this one. a Big awkward , lumbering novice - Fury makes the Klitshko's look as fleet of foot as Floyd Mayweather - I can see a hype job coming to elevate fury as big as the hype was/is around haye - the other 'saviour' of heavyweight boxing .

I reckon Tyson Fury should fight himself.... he has shown he can take a big uppercut from himself so could be an interesting fight!! Plus there would be no arguements about the purse because he'd take both cuts of it haha :)

Fury?? ha ha he is well and truly a chump! He will struggle to get a belt a decent belt at domestic level. He is so one paced! Get him on against big pricey he will get knocked spark out!

Why don't Fury and Price get it on? That would generate a bit of interest. They're both so inactive (maybe due to lack of willing opponents) how are people going to take notice of them?

Furious Tyson Fury!!!!!!!!! He is a fairly pointless boxer, but I will follow his career. I hope he fights Audley soon.

Has Steward lost the plot???!!Fury is terrible!! John McDermott was close to stopping him. The next big thing? Not unless he's going on Butterbeans diet!

Typical of the British public to shoot down our young athletes before they even get started. Indeed, it is true that thus far in his career Fury has apparently lacked all the skills required of a true great boxer, however at just 22 years of age he has beaten of the opposition of a number of more experienced fighters. I believe that Stewerds comments are probably relating to Fury's physical attributes, his height, reach and frame, which provide an excellent base upon which to build the skills. Remember people, he is only 22 and obviously has a long way to go, but I believe that with the right training, and the right fights, Fury may yet become a successfull boxer. So come on guys..... give this lad some encouragement.

that has got to be a wind up, Fury is terrible and should stick to bare knuckle fighting

For once I actually disagree with Steward and think Tyson is a complete and utter joke. Put it this way: I've never in the history of enjoying the sport seen any boxer uppercut themselves. Joke.

What the hell is he on about? Fury will not be the next Lewis or Vlad. He is seriously unfit and has not shown me the skills to get to the top. Euro level at best IMHO.

Jamie Church says...
