Notes

  • Fury came in 8 pounds lighter for this bout than in his previous debut just a month earlier.
  • Zeller wore a traditional, Scottish kilt instead of the normal trunks.
  • In Round 1, Zeller backed himself into a corner and motioned multiple times for Fury to "come on". Fury responded with a nice pair of uppercuts and a few body shots that slipped through the guard of Zeller.
  • In Round 2, Zeller was noticeably bleeding from the nose.
  • Action was paused at :47 of Round 3 as Zeller went down from what referee Howard John Foster determined to be a low blow. Fury was issued a warning and Zeller was given time to recover.
  • At 2:50 of Round 3, the referee stepped in and waved an end to the bout as Zeller was backed into a corner and absorbing punches with no effective, offensive response.
