Maloney fuming after decision
TWO brief encounters, and a long distance battle causing arguments that will continue for many months to come - such was the heavyweight action on the Frank Maloney promotion at Brentwood on Friday night. The English heavyweight title clash was a 10-round
TWO brief encounters, and a long distance battle causing arguments that will continue for many months to come - such was the heavyweight action on the Frank Maloney promotion at Brentwood on Friday night.
The English heavyweight title clash was a 10-round tussle with unbeaten Mancunian Tyson Fury claiming a hotly-disputed points win over Newham-trained champion John McDermott.
Angry Maloney has protested about the decision and insists that the least loser McDermott deserves, is a rematch, while winner Tyson said: "Bring it on - I will stop McDermott next time."
However, the clash lacked the vital heavyweight ingredient of explosive power, in fact there was little to scare off the rising hopes of the heavyweight division including Tom Dallas and Larry Olubamiwo, who both scored quick wins on the night.
Tom Dallas is surely ready for a step up in class following his seventh straight victory - a first round success over Hungarian Mihaly Nemet, who was blasted out in just one minute 14 seconds by powerful rights.
Dallas, based at Canning Town's Peacock Gym, where he trains under Mark Roe, has scored five wins inside two rounds after two points victories in his opening pro appearances.
