“It was over in a flash — I wish it had lasted longer,” Nikita Tszyu said.

“I uppercut. I saw a victim and my inner hunter instinct went into kill mode.

“If I see someone hurt, I want to hurt them.”

When asked who he wanted to fight next, Tszyu said cheekily: “There’s one guy in this arena that I focus on: The Gypsy King, Tyson Fury. Will take your WBC title away.”


As an expressionless image of Fury flashed on the big screen, Tszyu said: “I’m kidding, don’t kill me.”

Benhorn was the only man to stand up after facing Tszyu, calling for a rematch after playing his hole card against the previously undefeated Joel Taylor.

“I have been with [Horn], he kept bringing it up to me. No,” Tszyu said.

“I won’t have a rematch, I’m not interested. He’s too tough. He shoots too hard, it’s not fun. Sorry Benny.”

Parker also made short work of Opelu, proving he’s a man of a higher class. Sitting on the sidelines on game night, his pal Fury believes the New Zealander can once again become world champion.

“I thought it was a great show and it just showed how hard Joseph works in the gym,” Fury said.

“I’ve always said that there are many layers to boxing and he’s a former heavyweight champion of the world and I think he’s going to be back there again.”

Asked who he would like to see Parker fight next, Fury said: “I would like to see him have a rematch with Andy Ruiz or Joe Joyce. Maybe Dillian Whyte or AJ [Anthony Joshua]. F — All!
