Arfan Iqbal Shines Like a Star in Leon Senior Drilling

by Alexey Sukachev

Glow, Bluewater, Greenhithe, Kent - In his most important fight to date, Arfan Iqbal shined like a star against Irish import Leon Senior (10-2). The 22-year old light heavyweight, known for his sparring sessions with Tyson Fury, dropped Sneior with a smashing right hand in the first, then with an uppercut - in the second, and got the job done at 0:42 of the sixth with another uppercut-induced knockdown and a subsequent flurry of punches. Iqbal is now 7-0, 3 KOs.

Impressed but he certainly didn't shine. Apparently he resembles a young James Toney too? :lol1: Would like to see him step it up but I can see getting taken apart by someone with a good jab and strong boxing skills.
