Tyson Fury's brother was knocked out by an undefeated boxer in a championship fight. Video.
British heavyweight Ellis Zorro (16-0, 7 KOs) defeated the cousin of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Hosea Burton (28-4, 12 KOs), in a fight for the vacant WBO European title. The meeting in London as part of a boxing show at the York Hall arena ended early.
In the fight's debut, Tyson Fury's cousin looked better. Due to his anthropometric advantage, the 34-year-old Burton worked at a comfortable distance, even breaking his opponent's nose.
This tactic was successful until the middle of the fight, when Zorro began to attack aggressively and confidently, imposing a power fight. At the end of the 4th round, Ellis missed several dangerous punches and was pinned in the corner, but the bell saved him from a knockdown.
Closer to the championship rounds, the pace of the fight began to slow down. In the 7th three minutes, Zorro shocked Burton and rushed to finish him off, taking him down with a wrestling hold.
The referee did not open the score, and the fight continued, but not for long. In the very next moments, a right overhand became fatal for one of the Fury family.
