Heavyweight prospect Matty Harris clearly took Tyson Fury’s advice on board, as he went on to score a first-round knockout.
In Harris’ fourth professional fight, he appeared on the undercard of Liam Smith vs Chris Eubank Jr in Manchester earlier this year.
Ahead of the fight, he was visited by WBC heeavyweight world champion, Fury, who gave him a few words of motivation.
“No pay for overtime is there Matt, especially in this division,” Fury said.
“Get ’em in and get ’em packing home.”
And that is exactly what Harris did, as he went out there and unleashed a barrage of power punches on his opponent Jiri Surmaj.
This forced the referee to step in and stop the fight after just one minute and 14 seconds.
And Harris has continued on in this vein, as in his most recent outing at York Hall the 23-year-old scored yet another first round KO to make it four in a row after five professional fights.
