FORMER Irish Champion Tyson Fury proved more than able for Joey Abell claiming a fourth round knock out in his first fight in 10 months.
It was a typically enthralling Fury display as the giant puncher was buzzed before he eventually forced the referee to call a halt to proceedings.
The undefeated 25 year old, who didn’t look as fit as he did post David Haye’s cancellations, did cop some punishment, but had the 32 year old on the canvas in the third. The world title hopeful was caught clean in the fourth on the Copper Box show, but had Abell on the deck with a right hand early in the fourth, before ending his night early with a left hook.
Meanwhile, Fury’s cousin Hughie Fury improved his record to 13 wins in 13 contests. The 19-year-old heavyweight had American Matthew Greer down three times in the second round before the towel was thrown in.
