Boxer Tyson Fury: I would beat Cain, then return to boxing

 

Unbeaten boxing heavyweight Tyson Fury says he is game to step into the UFC, following a bitter twitter quarrel with UFC president Dana White, who invited Fury to step in the octagon, vs. UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.

“Come on over and we’ll make a deal," said White. "You want to fight Cain? You will get smashed.”

Kevin Francis of The Daily Star has the story.

Fury, 24, told me: “I have challenged him before and would consider taking him on in a one-fight deal – I would beat him and then return to boxing.

“I’m definitely interested but the money would have to be right.”

Fury, unbeaten in 21 fights, says that ­Mexican-American Velasquez would be a no-hoper in what he says would be a ‘‘man versus midget’’ contest.

He said: “I am 100% up for a fight with him. I’ve challenged him to a fight three times but he’s a little boy who doesn’t want to fight and has said ‘No’ to the fight live on television.”

Velasquez is underwhelmed.

“I didn’t even know who he was until this and I think he’s using my name to gain publicity," said Velasquez, adding "which he has done.”

A well sorted freak-show fight is a thing of beauty. I'm all for it.

Also I like JDS, and Cain not so much. But Cain is the better option, imo, because he wouldn't have any delusions about being able to outbox Fury.

^That's because he's facing guys who are near his level in boxing, none of which exist in the UFC. JDS would go for a takedown just as quick as Cain. Maybe saying at range with kicks would be viable but if JDS tried to box Fury it wouldn't go any better than Fury trying to double leg Cain or some stupid shit like that.Smaller gloves ill not negate the world of difference between their skill levels.

With boxing gloves.MMA gloves are completely different. Changes offense and defense drastically. In an MMA match I could see JDS having success in the stand up. You can't just stand there and cover up in MMA like you do in boxing, which Fury is in the habit of doing all the time during his fights.
