USS Cunningham joins Fury camp for sparring

Tyson Fury will be sparring with recent conquest Steve 'USS' Cunningham (25-6) in preparation for his September 17 date with David Haye. Fury stopped the American in the seventh round back in April after Cunningham floored him in the second with an overhand right. Fury has Reading's former British champion Michael Sprott and Brixton heavyweight Dillian Whyte in his training camp. His uncle and trainer, Peter Fury, also revealed he's hoping to recruit another American - 'Fast' Eddie Chambers (36-4) Chambers has been in with heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko and recently made his debut at cruiserweight, dropping a points decision to South African Thabiso 'The Rock Mchunu (14-1).

Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
