    PHILADELPHIA - Steve "USS" Cunningham held an open media workout at the Rock Ministries Gym in Philadelphia. With a little more than two weeks remaining until the fight, Cunningham, 25-2, 12 KOs, appeared confident, conditioned, and ready to fight Irish import Tyson Fury, 20-0, 14 KOs, a 6' 9" rising star of the heavyweight division. Cunningham went through a light workout for the press before speaking about the upcoming nationally televised fight at The Theater at Madison Square Garden scheduled for Saturday afternoon, April 20th. The Fury - Cunningham battle will be the main event of the 4PM ET broadcast on NBC.

    "He wants to get under my skin with his antics, imitating Ali, doing all these tricks," Cunningham said of Fury's trash talking press conference performance from last month. "He wants me to just come in and punch him in the mouth, but I will stick to the game plan and not get out of control. It's all about the game plan."

    We're getting ready for the best Tyson Fury that the world has ever seen," Cunningham continued. "He can say what he wants to say. It's only going to make him look bad when he gets beaten by a supposed light heavyweight."

    "I'm going to utilize my strengths, and we've worked on my weaknesses," Cunningham said. "So you're going to see some different things. You're going to see some things that are the same. I feel great. I feel strong. I feel energetic. I'm excited about this fight."

    Cunningham's trainer, Brother Naazim Richardson, said, "Steve Cunningham has been overlooked. He is an intelligent fighter and he's getting smarter all the time. See that's the thing, he's getting smarter all the time if you look at all his fights. In boxing power has always won guys things, but you never see anybody maintain with just power. Never happens...the strongest muscle in your body is that brain and the guy that can use that can find a way to manipulate almost any other person in the ring."


    Also fighting on the April 20 card, Philly favorite, Karl "Dynamite" Dargan, 12-0, 6 KO's,participated in the media workout as well. Dynamite ispreparing for his6 round lightweight contest against Sergi Ganjelashvili of Ft Lauderdale, FL, 4-5-1.

    Dynamite isready to fight anyone," Everything is on point.I'm sure they have an opponent for me, but most of my fights they don't tell me who the opponent is. For me it's not really for the fighter to know who the opponent is. A lot of people say well why not, don't you have to strategize, do this, do that? But that's what your trainer is for. Your trainer has to find out who you're fighting. Your trainer has to find your strategy to beat your opponent. That's not the fighter's job."
    Dynamite said, "The main thing for me right now is staying active. The more active I am the better. The better you guys see me. I don't think you guys have even seen the best of me yet as a professional."

    Even the great and powerful Genie Naazim cannot help a blind crazy. Fright has taken a hold of Steve "USS" Cunningham so badly that he has gone psychologically blind. Dude cannot see that size has little to do with fight.

    "It is not the size of the dawg, but the size of the fight in the dawg. Conning-hamchop had the audicity to say that if Tyson's "Fists of" Fury was "6'2 or 6'3 (he) would be crap.The only reason that you win is because of your size."

    OMFG! In the total history of the game, only seven fighters listed at 6-foot-6 or about have won main alphabet-sanctioning title belts. Conning-hamchop will become nothing more than trial horse for tallies and fatties. Fists of Fury is one who has skills to pay the bills. And will likely one day win a world title belt. Holla!

    I thought Fury was a big doofless lout,.. coming to fights out of shape, punching himself in the face, and brawing like he was closing the town pub. He looked like a fighter whose trainer needed to slap him in the jibs with a shillelagh.

    But against sturdy trial-horse Kevin Johnson, Fury showed he could move, throw in combination, engage his opponent behind a sound defense and fight 3 minutes of every round.

    If Cunningham can't cut Fury off in when he's making the transitions and steal some offense,.. I don't see how he's gonna win. Fury's reach is going to be a huge obstacle for the USS to Overcome.
