Tyson Fury beats Neven Pajkic via 3rd round stoppage
By Dan Henderson: Tyson Fury climbed up of the canvas to win a 3rd round stoppage against Canadian Neven Pajkic.
The first round was a scrappy round with not much happening. Pajkic came out swinging wildly and there was a lot of clinching.
The second round was not much better until Pajkic hit Fury with a overhand right and knocked Fury down. It was the first time Fury had been down in his career but he got back up and recovered well and showed good heart.
The third round was a better round for Fury in which he started to use his jab more and hit Pajkic with some solid shots and knocked him down. Pajkic got back up and recieved further punishment and was knocked down again. The referee stopped the fight after he took more shots from Fury.
My view is that even though the referee stopped the fight prematurely I think Pajkic would not of took much more from Fury. There will be a lot of criticism from various fans and writers and I have to agree. I feel Fury is nowhere near ready to fight for world honours just yet but what a lot of people seem to forget that he is only 23 and has a long career ahead of him. Mick Henessey said after the fight that he would like to get Fury to fight on January 28th.
Also on the card was Chris Eubank Jr who made his professional debut tonight against Lithuanian Kirrilis Psonko. He came to the ring with the same swagger his father did many years ago he looked impressive in his first outing winning via a 4th round technical knockout.
