Wins for Murray and Fury

19 July 2009 – By Mark Doyle

Undefeated duo Andy Murray and Tyson Fury both registered third-round stoppage wins at the York Hall on Saturday night.

Two-weight Irish champion Murray took his professional record to 16-0 when opponent Adam Kelly failed to answer the bell for the fourth round of their lightweight contest at the famous London venue.

The bout was Murrays first since claiming the European Union title with a unanimous points win over Daniel Rasilla in March but he always looked in command against Sheffield native Kelly.

Indeed, it came as no surprise when The Outlaw quit on his stool at the end of the third.

Rising heavyweight star Fury, who hopes to get his hands on both the British and Irish titles by end of the year, also enjoyed a relatively easy night at the office.

Fury bossed his bout with Aleksandrs Selezens right from the off but he piled on the pressure in the third, dropping his Latvian foe right hand before referee Mark Green wisely opted to call a halt to the proceedings with just under 50 seconds of the third round remaining.
