Boxer Fury: MMA is rubbish
Tyson Fury is undefeated in twenty professional boxing fights and is scheduled to compete this Saturday. Fury has famously gone back and forth with MMA fighters Michael Bisping and Cain Velasquez in the media, and today reignited the verbal sparring in talking with ESPN’s Franklin McNeil:
“Absolutely, one hundred-million percent,” the 24-year-old Fury said of his desire to fight Velasquez. “I’ve challenged Cain Velasquez to a fight three times. He’s a little boy who doesn’t want to fight. He said no, live on TV.”
There is no doubt in Fury’s mind that he would destroy Velasquez in a fight — whether it’s under boxing or mixed martial arts rules doesn’t matter to him. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Fury, who does not respect Velasquez or MMA, simply wants a chance to prove his point.
“I would take Cain Velasquez out,” Fury said. “MMA to me is bulls—. It’s for people who can’t box and like wrestling on the floor. It’s rubbish.
“I’m going to show on Saturday what I’m all about, why I’m this confident and why I’m here to fight.”
