Hughie Fury Continues Unbeaten Run With TKO Win

London - Heavyweight star Hughie Fury recorded his fourth straight win and third stoppage, clubbing former K1 experienced Janos Finfera into submission.

Hughie has now fought four times in four different countries since his debut in March and is looking to build his experience.

In the only boxing contest of the evening on the Klash Series event, which included Kempo kickboxing and MMA, in Timisoara, Romania, Hughie looked to make a big impression and he certainly delivered.

The 6'7" teenager looked confident and composed, using his superior reach to land stiff left jabs and control the pace from the opening bell.

As Finfera looked to get on the inside, Hughie began to pick him off at will, landing lefts and solid rights.

Finfera threw wild shots at Hughie, whose movement and size was clearly too much for the former K1 experienced man.

A fierce right uppercut wobbled Finfera before a flurry of lefts and rights to the body doubled him over for an eight-count and as Hughie moved in to finish, the bell rang to end the first round.

Moving into the second Hughie continued to pick off his opponent at will and another flurry of powerful lefts and rights to the body gave Finfera another eight-count.

Hughie, sensing that he could finish, saw Finfera trying to cover up the left side of his body and targeted the area with solid right hands, leaving his latest opponent on the canvas and him with a third stoppage in four fights

“I hit him with a shot to the solar-plexus and he bent to the side, so I put two in,” Hughie said.

Hughie, the first ever Irish/British fighter to win a gold medal at the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships at super heavyweight, now boasts four wins from four contests, with three knockouts.

"I thought it was a good fight, the guy needs a big round of applause because he took some solid body shots," Hughie's older cousin Tyson Fury said.

“He’s a rising talent, he’s got a very long way to go but he’s a rising talent.” 

Hughie now looks to keep busy and get back in the ring as soon as possible, as he continues to build his experience in the professional ranks.

Yesterday evening I was just zapping when I saw on an obscure local (i.e. Romanian) TV sport channel that Hughie Fury was just hammering a poor guy in front of some 300 hundred spectators, in Timişoara (Western Romania)... I was…

I like hughie as he is not as arrogant as Tyson and seems very mature for a 19 year old.

The best part of the fight was the counting. 1..2..3..4..6..7..8 LOL. But a very good performance, its very pleasing to see heavyweights hit the body.

I saw the fight yesterday. That kid, for his age, is a huge prospect. He is only going to get better.
