Fury Stops Selezens

Boxingnews24.com19th July, 2009

Getting in one more fight against a woefully over-matched opponent before his bout with John McDermott in September, unbeaten heavyweight prospect Tyson Fury (7-0, 7 KO's) kept his perfect knockout record alive with a 3rd round stoppage over Latvian Aleksandrs Selezens (3-7, 1 KO's) on Saturday night in a scheduled six round bout at the York Hall, in Bethnal Green, London.

Fury, 21, had little problems with the sloppy looking Selezens, hitting him pretty much whenever he wanted to in the one-sided fight. In the 3rd round, Fury hurt Selezens with a nice hook to the body and a big shot top the head. Fury then landed several more big shots to send Selezens down on the canvas. Referee Mark Green then stepped in and halted the fight at 0:48 of the 3rd.

The 6'9" Fury keeps winning but it would have been better hand Fury been matched a little tougher. Thankfully, Fury has McDermott next. That should be a good test for Fury to tell if he's the real deal or not. It's hard to tell whether Fury has the talent to be a top fighter because his opposition has been so horrible.
