Fury Destroys Belshaw, Calls Out Chisora
By Nate Anderson: Undefeated British heavyweight prospect Tyson Fury (6-0, 6 KOs) recorded his 6th straight knockout with a 2nd round TKO over Scott Belshaw (10-2, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Colosseum, in Watford, Hertfordshire. Fury, 20, dropped the badly over matched Belshaw twice in the 1st round with powerful body shots.
Belshaw, 23, his nose bleeding badly, was barely able to get out of the round without getting knocked out. In the 2nd, Fury made short work of Belshaw after nailing him with a hard right hand to the midsection that pitched Belshaw forward in pain.
Fury then showed mercy to his stricken opponent by backing away instead of finishing him off. Referee Richard James Davies then stepped in and halted the slaughter at 0:52 of the 2nd round. After the fight, Fury called out heavyweight Derek Chisora, saying “Get Derek Chisora in that ring and I’ll stop him.”
The way that Fury fought tonight, I believe Fury would be way too much for a fighter like Chisora to compete with. It’s going to take a special kind of heavyweight to beat the 6’9″ Fury and the likes of Chisora would probably not even be a real challenge for him at this point. Fury has much more size and power than Chisora, and I think this would be another potential mismatch like tonight’s bout.
Fury was very impressive with his powerful body shots, hand speed and his use of the jab.
Belshaw looked to be hurt with each pile driving body shot that Fury was hammering him with in the bout, and really never got a chance to get his own offense untracked.
