Haye vs Fury: Tyson Fury brings Steve Cunningham in for sparring, remains fully confident of win

Shaun Botterill

Team Fury is beefing up their camp with familiar names as they get ready to face David Haye on September 28.

Tyson Fury has added Steve Cunningham as a sparring partner as he prepares for his September 28 bout with David Haye, and tells the Daily Star that he's fully confident of the win in what will be by far the biggest fight and test of his career to date, saying that he wouldn't be fighting Haye if he didn't think he would win.

"People can say what they want about me - they can say I'm slow, fat, useless, rubbish, chinless, whatever they want to say about me. But my record speaks for itself. I am at my top level right now and I'm really, really ready for what the world can give me and what I can show the world about me.

"I'm 100 per cent confident in my ability, 100 per cent in my heart and 100 per cent confident in my team. I wouldn't be here if I wasn't. I'm not into taking fights I don't believe I can win."

Fury (21-0, 15 KO) has enlisted the sparring help of former foe Cunningham, the fighter he beat in his last bout, which was his U.S. debut in April of this year. Fury and Cunningham talked plenty of trash before and after the fight, but work is work. Fury is also hoping to add Eddie Chambers to his preparation, which means he's definitely looking to get work with guys who can let their hands go quicker than the average heavyweight. They don't have David Haye's power, but Haye is, physically, a rare animal in today's heavyweight division. Cunningham, maybe Chambers, and then Michael Sprott and Dillian Whyte are a fine core group for camp.
