Tyson Fury looked impressive in knocking out unbeaten Brazilian import Marcelo Luiz Nascimento in round 5 at Wembley Arena tonight.
After dropping his man in the first round and boxing well to nullify Nascimento’s big shots, Fury fought at range before the finishing shot a big looping right hand that crashed off the Brazilians temple, sending him to the floor in a crumpled state and out cold for a few minutes.
Fury at 6′,9″ looked massive and so much bigger than Nascimento, who conceded three stone to Fury. But after being dropped heavily in the first round, he bravely got up and give it his best shot against Manchester’s English champion.
The Brazilian who had an unbeaten 13 fight record like Fury coming into fight, couldn’t get near Fury often enough to test his chin, although he did his best with some wild shots that flew past the chin of Fury.
Fury after the fight was very vocal in calling out his British heavyweight rivals, while congratulating former rival John McDermott on his first round destruction of Larry Olubamiwo over at the York Hall.
