Hughie Fury Blows Away Chris Norrad in Two Rounds

Victoria Warehouse, Trafford Road, Manchester - In a heavyweight clash, world title challenger Hughie Fury (22-2, 12 KOs) had no issued with demolishing previously undefeated Chris Norrad (17-1, 8 KOs) in two rounds.

This was the first bout for Fury since suffering a twelve round decision loss to Kubrat Pulev in an IBF final eliminator in October of last year. In that contest Fury suffered a bad cut that kept him on the shelf for several months. It was Fury's second defeat in three fights.

Norrad, 35-years-old, has never fought outside of Canada and his record was built up on overmatched competition. This fight with Fury was also his first bout in over a year.


Fury came out jabbing, applying pressure and had Norrad on the run. Norrad seemed to be intimidated early on, as Fury pressed forward and was throwing with both hands. Norrad was being very defensive and not throwing much back as Fury came forward with no fear. Fury was picking his punches to the head and then digging to the body.

In the second round, a series of shots send Norrad down. He barely made it up by the count of ten and the referee made a decision to wave off the fight.

Also on the card, middleweight contender Savannah Marshall (6-0, 4 KOs) continued her march to a world title shot when she picked up a first round knockout over Borislava Goranova (11-56).  

Michael Hennessy Jr. (1-0) made his pro debut by winning a four round decision over Adam Grabiec (7-26).

The Michael Hennessey jr & Sr interview is worth a watch on youtube. Mainly for the comments.

It was amazing how many shots Norrad could have landed but didn't. I am not saying he threw the fight.

Hughie is Euro level at best. And I think that might even be a stretch

how are you marching towards a world title when you beat an opponent with an 11-56 record :-)

Hughie is stuck in the purgatory of where you are much better than domestic level but not slightly not good enough for world level
