Tommy Fury took his professional record to 4-0 with a crushing knockout of Lithuanian journeyman Genadij Krajevskij in Stratford on Friday night.

The brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is just 21-years-old, with little amateur experience and is developing in the pro ranks, which explains why he was taking on an opponent who held a record of 0-11.

TNT was the overwhelming favourite and he performed as such, stopping the Baltic Bomber in the second round of their bout.

The first round was relatively close, although the Englishman won it, but he ended things spectacularly in the second stanza, thanks to a heavy uppercut.

The beaten man stayed down for some time, but eventually rose from the canvas and congratulated the winner.

‘At the end of the day I had to ease into it, I’ve been out a year, but when I did I started putting my shots together and I felt comfortable,’ said Fury.

‘It’s a very hard road. I’ve had basically no amateur experience and I’m just learning as I go, experience is what I need but if I keep getting out there I’ll get better.

‘Sparring is sparring, but getting under the lights is a different thing and I just need more of it, that’s a simple answer really.’

Promoter Frank Warren commented on Fury’s level of competition, saying he will be moved at an appropriate pace given how little experience he has.

‘You talk about limited amateur experience, it means nothing,’ said Warren. ‘He also comes in with the fact that he’s Tyson’s brother so it’s a big weight on his shoulders.

‘His job is to go in there and do what he did tonight, my job is to ensure that matches are made at the right time and hes not going to be rushed.

‘If anyone wants to have a moan about it, it’s down to me, I’m the one in the driving seat, making sure that those matches are made at the right time.

‘He’s got a tremendous future ahead of him, there’s no doubt about it.’
