Heavyweight Tyson Fury the entertainer grinds out win against Steve Cunningham


For Hennessy, though his man did not fight the fight they wanted, Fury still showed that he can put on a spectacle.

“This game needs a bit of show business, it needs a bit of entertainment.  The heavyweight division has needed an injection in the arm for a long time and it just got it with Tyson Fury,” he said.

Earlier on the undercard, Fury’s cousin, heavyweight Hughie Fury (2-0, 2 KOs), scored a first round TKO over Alex Rozma, ending affairs with 2:26 gone in the first stanza.
