Fury to face Italian Stallion Maddalone
Former British and Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury will take on Vinny Maddalone, the Italian Stallion from New York, in his next outing on July 7 at the Hand Arena in Clevedon, Somerset.
Irish Heavyweight champion Fury will take on the 38-year-old journeyman, who has won 35 of his 43 fights with defeats to Evander Holyfield and Jean Marc Mormeck.
‘He’s a good opponent, a real tough guy, who leaves nothing in the changing room, he certainly comes to fight,’ said Fury, who is currently at a training camp in Essen, Belgium.
‘Training has gone well and I’m in the best shape of my life and I’m looking forward to some good rounds and after I beat him maybe we can go out and get something to eat.’
‘I'm Looking forward to fighting in England,’ said Maddalone. ‘The Brits may be rooting for him in the beginning but I guarantee they will be cheering for me by the end of the night.’
‘I respect Tyson Fury, hats off because he shows lots of balls. I'm really happy for this opportunity and I promise to give everything I've got. Two guys with balls will make for a great fight.’
The 12-round international heavyweight contest promoted by Hennessy Sports in association with Sanigar Events and Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing will be broadcast live on Channel 5.
