By Mark Ortega

Hand Arena, Clevedon, Somerset - Saturday on terrestrial TV in the UK and in the U.S. on WealthTV (a newcomer to the boxing game), Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KOs) took a sidestep in his quest to become a legitimate player in the heavyweight division, stopping Vinny Maddalone (35-8, 26 KOs) of Queens, New York in round five via TKO.

Both fighters started off a bit cautious, but Fury was able to land a number of solid straight rights in the opening frame that highlighted the difference in class between the two. Fury landed the right hand off his jab and Maddalone looked bothered by the Manchester native's power through the next few rounds.

Fury began working in more hooks and uppercuts in round four as part of his combination punching, often landing at a high clip. A straight right midway through shook up Maddalone on the ropes, but he was unable to finish him with the follow-up. Fury wobbled Maddalone again, opening a cut underneath the left eye in the closing minute with some accurate power punching.

Fury jumped out quickly to open round five looking for the stoppage, but Maddalone weathered the storm quite well considering how close he was to being out in the previous round. The expected outcome, however, was reached midway in the round as referee Ian John Lewis rescued him at 1:35 in the round after he took a few more hard shots and wore the look of a defeated fighter on his face. Fury picked up the vacant WBO Inter-Continental title with the win.

Prized Brighton middleweight prospect Chris Eubank Jr. (5-0, 2 KOs) outpointed the game Terry Carruthers (11-12-6, KO) over six entertaining rounds. Though Eubank controlled nearly every second, Carruthers had some moments even after suffering a cut near the right eye in round two. There was good action throughout, with Eubank always getting the better of it in showing his proficiency as a body puncher and combination puncher. The fight was scored 59-57 in favor of Eubank.

Despite the lack of an extensive amateur career, Eubank has shown his class in the paid ranks having defeated a number of tough customers in his first five fights.

Select rounds were shown of the European bantamweight title fight between Lee Haskins and Stuart Hall in which Haskins wasn't bothered by a late Hall rally in order to win the vacant crown. Scores were 118-111, 117-111, 118-110 in favor of Haskins.

Maddalone looked like someone who had taken up boxing for a quick buck. When I first saw him square up to Fury I thought we might be in for at least a brawl, instead what we got was an absolute farce. Boxing in the UK needs all the positive publicity it can get but is Fury really up to the ...

That was a good beat down by Fury.

[QUOTE=DavidHaye'sToe]What a superbly wrote piece Ravens Fan I couldn't possibly agree more,but I would like too point out that I believe Toney is only a keep busy fight until Goral's promoters find him a top class opponent for December.Adamek stated straight after the fight with Chambers he want...

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]Who gives Adamek a pass? I will start by saying that it is shameful that Adamek is fighting Toney and I am a fan of Tomasz. But as for the rest of his record at heavyweight I am okay with it, well most of it. And I will even go fight by fight. He fights Golota who had name r...

[QUOTE=Enzo Mc is ****]I get very tired of the criticism leveled at the Klitchkos, Haye, Fury, **** it - just about anybody else in the heavyweight division - for taking on poor opponents when Adamek is somehow allowed a pass for fighting the complete bums he likes to feast on, almost always in h...
