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.
Not bad at 22, he needs work though. There's no need to rush him into anything. Take his time.Comment by ShamrockXpress on 11-17-2013
He's only young but he was lunging in with shots and was very lucky he was fighting a guy with 0 kos. The uppercut that caused the 3rd knockdown was a lovely punch and at times he shown littles flashes,…Comment by whatismyname on 11-17-2013

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.Post a Comment - View More User Comments (6)
