Belfast Boxer Tennyson Lands Incredible KO At O2 Arena With Lethal Left Hand

Belfast lightweight James Tennyson secured a sensational second-round knock-out against Atif Shafiq on the undercard of Luke Campbell's world title fight with Vasily Lomanchenko at London's O2 Arena.

The former world title contender let loose with a lethal left hand to cut Rotherham's Shafiq down in impressive fashion.

The Kronk-based fighter has now secured three stoppages since his super-featherweight title defeat by Tevin Farmer. Most encouraging, it was a strong showing at the weight. Tennyson has moved from featherweight and super-featherweight since turning pro.

"I made the weight comfortably and felt good," declared the 26-year old post-fight. He will continue to operate at lightweight.

A sold-out crowd will watch Britain's Luke Campbell try and uncrown the pound-for-pound king of the sport later tonight. That fight is expected to start between 10.30pm and 11.oopm.
