Fury Beats Belshaw

In his 6th professional fight, Luke Tyson Fury (6-0-0, 6 KO's) defeated a sound opponent when he defeated Scott Belshaw (10-2, 7 KOs) by TKO in the 2nd round of an eight round contest at the Coliseum, in Watford, Hertfordshire, England.

This is the 1st opponent he has faced at the pro ranks that could look him the eye as Belshaw was also 6'7". The fight started off with Fury popping the jab and circling. He landed a good left hook off the jab and easily avoided Belshaw's telegraphed punches. Fury landed more jabs throuhgout the round found his right and Belshaw's nose started to bleed. Before the end of the round Fury dropped him twice each time by a very hard body shot, and Belshaw managed to escape the round.

In round 2, Fury kept his right hand on his chin and landed his jab. Belshaw began to get desperate and threw wild swings which Fury capitalized on by landing a viscious left hook to the floating ribs of Belshaw. Belshaw doubled over and was clearly hurt, but instead of following up with anything Fury let the ref stop the 1 sided contest.

Tyson hopes to get a fight with Derek Chisora since Chisora is reportedly no longer fighting Danny Williams to potentially score a shot at the British heavyweight title. Stay tuned for more info.
