I have seen Fury box, and by the time he bent over to try and stop a take down the fight would be over.

No more free rides for boxers.

His dad gave him the name Tyson. Fury is his family name. And yeah, rofl at hardcore boxing fan friend. Me thinks he has no hardcore boxing friend, and was making up shit to illustrate his point.

On topic, I thought Cain handled that interview perfectly. Seems like he was trying to stop himself from laughing. It would be no contest in a MMA fight and Fury has no real interest in entering the UFC. Like Cain said, he was using Velasquez' name to garner publicity. To be honest, say what you will about Fury, it worked! Alot of people know who he is now.

Tyson Fury is much more well known than Deontay Wilder across the boxing world. Since it's not regulated like UFC, hardcore fans look further than locally to find popular fighters. Tyson Fury to American fans is like a Bellator fighter to UFC fans.

duckyou, Tyson Fury's still a well known enough guy in boxing. He's a complete joke and if you're mates a hardcore boxing fan and doesnt know a dude ranked in the top 10 of heavyweights (even though hes a joke) he's not that hardcore in the first place.
He knows who Fury is, it's just Fury isn't outstanding in anyway. I know who Fury is and I haven't even watched Boxing on TV for ******* years. When I asked my buddy about Fury when I first saw an article where he called out Cain, all he said was, Fury's good, but he's not great, and the first thing that came into my friends head about Fury was the he uppercutted himself.
