Huddersfield’s Tyrone Nurse is getting better and better and again proved his standing by stopping veteran campaigner Willie Limond in the 9th round to retain his British light-welterweight title in Glasgow on Saturday night. watch the fight above.
Nurse, 26, who is trained by his dad Chris Aston, was making the first defence of his title against the tough Limond who gave his all and caught Nurse at times with some good shots but Nurse was always the superior and good more accurate and into the fight as it went on.
Nurse shown an array of sweet skills and variety of punch and was very impressive against a brave challenger who went out on his shield. It was starting to look painful for Glasgow warrior Limond as the end approached and Nurse never let up in his attacks.
As the proud Scot was caught by another punch one too many referee Victor Loughlin stepped in to stop the fight with Limond on his feet but bitterly disappointed. In hindsight it was the right decision.
Nurse can go on to bigger and better things, he could well be one of the most naturally gifted British boxers we have produced for a longtime and if he can start to add power and the eye to finish an opponent, there is no telling how far he could go.
