Watch Born Free’s interview with Joey Fury from the Red Bull Conquest 2018 Finals

Equinox’s Joey Fury is the second highest ranked US player qualified for the Tekken World Tour Finals. Born Free caught up with him at the Red Bull Conquest 2018 Finals held earlier this month November 16-18 in Washington, DC, asking him all of the interesting questions Tekken fans would want to know.

He recently beat Jimmy Tran (Mr. Naps) for the first time in a set, in Winners Finals at Red Bull Conquest. Sadly, lost in the Grand Final and came in second, by a whisker.

When it comes to Tekken, Joey was an early starter. By the time he was 14 years old, he was the best player in the Buffalo, NY scene. He has only progressed since then, and especially in recent times.

Joey became the first US player to beat both Saint and JDCR at Final Round in 2017, which put him on the map, globally. He didn’t even have the game on console when that occurred. As you know, the Koreans had it well in advance in the arcade early.

Learn all of this and much more from the interview.

Aziz Peregrino-Brimah aka Zee the CEO | Founder / Editor-in-chief of TekkenGamer | Gaming has been a passion of Zee's since the early days of Atari and ColecoVision. His first experience with Tekken was in the early 90's, and it was Tekken 3 that sealed the deal. True story... As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
