Bad Left Hook Live Boxing Results and Commentary: Tyson Fury v. John McDermott II

Today at 5:30pm EDT, Sky Sports 2 will present the rematch between big-talking Tyson Fury and John McDermott. The two fought to a very controversial decision win for Fury last September, with referee Terry O'Connor coming under heavy fire for his 98-92 card that gave Fury the win.

Today's fight will be refereed by Dave Parris, with judges Howard John Foster, Richard James Davies and Victor Loughlin at ringside. The fight is for the vacant English heavyweight title, and an eliminator for the British belt. Fury came in at 270 pounds on the scale, with McDermott at 254. Last time out, Fury weighed 247, and his career-high 270 could be an issue. Even at 6'7", that's a lot of weight in the ring.
