Dubois dropped Fujimoto in round two with a jab, then laid him out for several minutes with a huge right hand. Time was 2:10. The bout was contested for Dubois’ WBO international and the vacant WBC silver heavyweight belts.
WBO #7 middleweight Liam “The Machine” Williams (21-2-1, 16 KOs) scored a fifth round KO over 6’4 WBO #2 rated Alantez “SlyAza” Fox (26-1-1, 12 KOs) to win the vacant WBO intercontinental title.
The much shorter Williams pressed the action, dropping Fox with a right hand in round four. Fox was deducted a point for holding in round five. Later in the round, Williams battered Fox to the deck again to end it. Time was 2:59.
Light heavyweight Tommy Fury (3-0, 2 KOs), Tyson Fury’s half-brother and fresh off a stint on the popular British reality TV show “Love Island,” needed just 62 seconds to demolish Przemyslaw Binienda (2-27, 2 KOs). Fury bum-rushed Binienda dropping him twice before getting a referee’s stoppage. 25 straight losses for Binienda.
