Last Saturday Tyrone Spong took on Emre Altintas who owns a professional record of 10-5. Just like his debut Tyrone just needed one round to finish the job. Altintas who started the fight well by trying to pressure Tyrone early on was not able to put Tyrone in any danger. It was Spong that dropped him with a beautiful left hook to the body. Altintas took the 8 count but it was seconds later that Spong delivered a crushing right hook that knocked Altintas out. Yet another great victory for Tyrone Spong.
