"Let's get it on!": Tyson Fury issues challenge to UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez

3 Jan 2013 12:22
British heavyweight boxing star Tyson Fury isn't shy of calling out potential opponents, and now he's targeted a new heavyweight - UFC world champion Cain Velasquez


Outspoken: Tyson Fury has already called out David Price and the Klitschkos - and now he wants to fight UFC star Cain Velasquez

Mexican-American Velasquez destroyed then-champion Junior Dos Santos to reclaim the UFC's heavyweight championship of the world on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

And now Fury, who has already made clear his desire to fight David Price and Vitali Klitschko in 2013, says he fancies a crack at the UFC superstar - either in an MMA bout or a boxing contest.

Posting on his Twitter page, Fury accused Velasquez, a collegiate All-American wrestler and two-time UFC heavyweight world champion, of being on steroids, and challenged him to a bout "in a cage or ring".

Fury went on to tweet UFC president Dana White, saying, "I'm the new baddest man on the planet I'll smash @cainmma. Let's get it on!"

It's highly unlikely White would sanction another boxer vs MMA fighter event in the UFC, with the last bout proving a one-sided mismatch.

The bout saw an out-of-shape James "Lights Out" Toney face 47-year-old former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture at UFC 118 in 2010.

Toney failed to land a single punch as Couture took him to the mat and eventually submitted the former multi-weight world champion in just over three minutes in 2010.

Toney's lack of conditioning made the fight a mismatch from the start, but the addition of techniques not permitted in boxing, such as wrestling, submissions and knee and elbow strikes, makes an MMA fight a more complex challenge for a boxing specialist.


Fury would possess a huge height and reach advantage over Velasquez, but the UFC star has prodigious punching power of his own and, with his top-level wrestling skills and superb cardio, he'd offer a challenge unlike any Fury has faced inside a boxing ring.

It's a fantasy fight that will almost certainly never happen, but that doesn't mean we can't debate the possible outcome. Who would YOUR money be on?

Tyson Fury would get KILLED by Cain.

In a boxing match it'd be Fury with his hand raised (I hated typing that lol). But yeah in MMA it would be a humiliation all over again.

Yeah this is never going to happen again, Toney-Couture put an end to the boxing-MMA fantasy fights. Tyson Fury is a moron who upper-cut punched himself in the face (youtube it). On a side note, Brits really like to talk trash dont they?

I wouldnt say Trash talking is a particularly British trait, any more than it is an American one.

Woah there! I didn't say shit. Nahhh but really I have no idea what my fave HW boxer is on about. If he wants to fight Cain in a cage it will be over quicker than the Toney/Couture fight. If he's talking about a boxing match then why not call out JDS? Still, in a boxing match Fury would obviously murder both.

On a side note, the dude he was fighting when he uppercutted himself is Lee Swaby. Someone I've trained with multiple times and now works as a bouncer here in Lincoln. Not that technical but impossible to hurt.
