Review: 2014-02-15, pretty entertaining fight with four knockdowns but what we have seen (lack of noble behaviour) is not “the sweet science”: Tyson Fury vs Joey Abell gets two stars. The undefeated Tyson Fury entered this fight with a perfect record of 21-0-0 (15 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.4 heavyweight in the world, his family has a long history in boxing and they were known as “family of fighting travelers” in fact also the alias of his father John Fury was “Gypsy”, but as a professional boxer he finished his career with a not outstanding record of 8-4-1, but they also used to fight in bare knuckle bouts…
On the original fight card Fury was expected to face the Argentinian Gonzalo Omar Basile but he withdrawn because of a lung infection and he has been replaced with the 32-year-old American Joey Abell who has an official record of 29-7-0 (28 KOs=96%). Fury vs Abell is the co-main event of Dereck Chisora vs Kevin Johnson. Watch the video and rate this fight!
