Hughie Fury registered a fairly comfortable victory over Samuel Peter via seventh-round TKO at the King Abdullah Sports Center in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The Mancunian favourite was virtually landing at will from the outset with a stabbing left hand but struggled to set up any more meaningful shots earlier on against his rugged counterpart.
However, Fury largely appeared to be in control as the Nigerian stalked languidly without any real purpose or conviction, occasionally attempting to bowl over an audacious haymaker and invariably missing.
The bout degenerated into a somewhat sloppy and ugly affair throughout the middle rounds, especially when Peter was cautioned on multiple occasions for low-blows and hitting after the break, and was ultimately deducted a point in the fourth.
Fury maintained his conservative approach, however, until the fight ended in thoroughly bizarre circumstances following a scrappy exchange in the seventh round between the pair, before Peter recoiled in agony with a seemingly dislocated shoulder.
