Channel 5 to screen Fury v Cunningham

Hennessy Sports have announced that Channel 5 here in the UK will televise Tyson Fury’s US debut against Steve “USS” Cunningham in an official IBF world heavyweight title eliminator live at The Theater, Madison Square Garden, New York.


With less than two weeks to go until he faces the former two-time world cruiserweight champion, Steve Cunningham 25-2, 12 KO’s, at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, New York, the young 6’9” heavyweight will now explode onto American soil in front of network and terrestrial television in the US and United Kingdom as well as going out around the world.


“This is a great opportunity for me to come to the US and showcase my talents at a great venue such as MadisonSquareGarden,” Tyson said.


“The fight fans better be prepared for a good old fashioned fight, because I’m coming to town and I’m taking no prisoners.


“Steve Cunningham, you’re in big trouble, I hope you’ve been training really hard because I know I have and it’s fight time.


“We’ve given ourselves plenty of time to prepare, we’ve been over here now for six weeks, so that’s more than enough time to acclimatise and get used to the time difference.”
