He said: “I think it was an absolutely fantastic event and a great night of boxing, it could not have gone any better.
“It went absolutely fantastically, we had the record-breaking crowd there, in history for any event and Ed Sheeran was really p***ed off about that recently.
“And then we had a a brilliant knockout to cap it all off, what a send-off.”
Fury is still locked in negotiations to fight Brit rival Anthony Joshua in December – despite claiming the deadline for their long-awaited grudge match had passed.

Boxing’s fundamental skills are:
- Punching techniques
- Guarding techniques
- Move your body
There are seven types. Each punch is unique. Some punches require more force than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch. A straight punch, on the other hand requires less power and is quicker than other punches.
There are also different combinations. These are combinations made up of several punches that can be used together to achieve one goal. A combination may contain several parts. A combination may include multiple parts. For example, damage to the jaw of an opponent can be caused by a left hook and a right cross.
To defend himself from being attacked, a boxer uses his entire body. He does this by using his legs, arms, elbows, hands, knees and feet.
Boxers should use the legs to protect themselves against kicks. When he’s hit, he raises his right leg and runs away from the attacker. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. If the attack is from the side, he will bend his knees to avoid being kicked on the side.
Elbow strikes are very effective because they inflict much pain. An elbow strike can be delivered either directly or indirectly. Directly, you strike your opponent with your forearm. Indirectly, you hit him with another portion of your arm.
Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. They raise their fists high above their heads and point them in the direction of an attack. The attacker’s fist is then in their face.
A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. Defense purposes are often served by knee strikes.
When attacked, a boxer should step back and deliver counter-attacks. This way, he can gain distance between himself and his opponent. In addition, when delivering a counter-attack, a boxer should keep his balance.
To box effectively, a boxer must establish a stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It defines where he faces his opponent and how he positions his body. Boxers have many stances to choose from. These are the most popular:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
Boxers must maneuver around their opponent to win fights. This means changing your speed, position and rhythm.
To increase his punching power, a boxer rotates when he throws a punch. Depending on what punch is being thrown, the speed of rotation varies.
The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A combination of strong and weak punches will produce a good result.
Sparring, a boxing practice session, is designed to improve your boxing skills. During sparring sessions, a boxer trains his mind as well as his body. In conclusion, the purpose of sparring is to learn how to fight and not get hurt.
Learning to box takes dedication and patience. To become a better fighter, you have to train hard and continue to work.
