Fury overcomes knockdown to win inside 7 rounds

Tyson Fury overcame adversity last night at New York’s Madison Square Garden after getting dropped with a big overhand right by Steve Cunningham in the 2nd round. Fury who was getting caught more than he needed too in the last night managed to turn the fight around and be the first man to stop the American former world cruiserweight champion in the 7th.

“It’s one of those things, you can’t go swimming and not get wet – he put on a good fight,” Fury said. “I got caught with a big swinging right. You have to get up, this is a learning experience.

“That was a good hook to the side of the jaw, it was a matter of time until I got hold of him and when I caught him it was curtains.”

After last night the web and other media have been awash with rumours that Fury would face David Haye before the end of 2014 and bookie Ladbrokes have jumped on the bandwagon with odds of  Fury – 5/2, Haye – 2/7 and The Draw – 25/1.
