Boxer Tyson Fury Clearly Not a Historian - Believes He Can Defeat Cain Velasquez

By January 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Tyson Fury is an undefeated boxer who hasn't been successful in getting a bout against the Klitschko's in his own sport. So who did he decide to call out? None other than UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, via his official Twitter account. Check out what he wrote below:

"Cain Velasquez is a little midget on steds bring it on I'll fight. Not a man born from his mother can beat me! I challenge u to fight all in in a cage or ring! It could be billed as the man vs midget lets get it on! U small stiff idiot. I'm the new baddest man on the planet I'll smash @cainmma. Let's get it on! U all herd it hear first if @cainmma has balls to fight me then lets go!"

Okay, nice attempt at publicity. At least I hope that's what it was, because if Fury- yep, all 6-foot-9 of him- believes he's just going to waltz into an MMA cage and have his way with the champ, well, he needs a history lesson. Speaking of history lessons, check out an article on how the far majority of these boxing vs. MMA/grappling matches have gone here: Most Influential Boxing vs. MMA Matches of All Time

The bottom line? A fight between Fury and Velasquez would likely go like this. Velasquez takes Fury down with a double leg within the first two minutes. Then the UFC champ does whatever he wants to until such time as the referee steps in or Fury taps. Yep, plain and simple.

It would be nice to see Cain do a submission.
