- Updated: April 30, 2016
Heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury outpointed Fred Kassi in the main event contest at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday night.
Fury, who the cousin of Tyson Fury, had no trouble gaining the edge in the fight as he outboxed Kassi from start to finish.
Kassi tried everything in his arsenal, including switching back and forth between orthodox and southpaw, but was unable to put a dent in Fury. Unfortunately for Fury, an accidental headbutt during the sixth round caused a gash over his left eye that resulted in an early stoppage after close examination by the ringside doctor.
Scores were 69-66, 70-64, and 69-65 in favor of Fury.
