Fury Wins On Points Over McDermott

Tonight, Luke Tyson Fury won a 10 round bout against John McDermott by points for the English heavyweight title. The fight was very competitive from the start. McDermott got in on Tyson's guard throughout the fight and was able to land many right hands on Fury. But, Fury showed grit and landed clean body shots throughout. The fight could have gone either way, but Tyson ended up winning the fight with a score of 98-92 that was handed in by referee and sole judge Terry O'Connor. I thought honestly that that was a little too much in Tyson's favor. I thought the fight was closer than that.

This is Tyson's 1st pro title and now has a professional record of
8-0(7) while McDermott falls to 25-6(16). There are talks of a potential rematch so stay tuned.
