Tyson Fury's a knock out

Manchester Evening News28th June, 2010

Tyson Fury silenced his doubters and regained the English heavyweight title with a ninth round knockout of John McDermott.

After enduring fierce criticism when winning the belt in controversial circumstances last September, the 21-year-old ensured there would be no finger-pointing this time around - sending his opponent to the canvas three times before referee Dave Parris stopped the fight.

Highly emotional after a victory that now makes him the No1 contender for Derek Chisora's British title Fury said: "It was very, very hot. My legs were tired, my body was tired but something in my head told me that Tyson Fury is not going to quit."
