Fury comes back from the brink

Last night at Manchester’s Event City saw British and Commonwealth Heavyweight champ Tyson Fury floored in the second round by Canada’s Nevin Pajkic with a swinging overhand right. Pajkic who came out swinging from the off and kept coming t Fury who seem a tad over confident and in the second he got caught and dropped for the first time in his career. Fury made the count and the round ended and in the third Fury came out blasting on all cylinders and dropped Pajkic twice before the ref stopped it.

Worrying time for Fury but another learning curve on his way up through the ranks. Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy announced that his next fight will be on 28th Jan in Blackpool, followed by his US debut on St.Patrick’s Day at Maddison Square Garden.

On the undercard Chris Eubank Jnr made his debut and stopped Kirilas Psonko in the 4th round of 6. A comfortable win for the 21yo who is looking to set the Super-Middleweight scene alight.

Daily Sport Says – Fury came back well but certainly isn’t ready for a world title shot just yet.
