Sean Turner certainly knows how to work a crowd. Just moments after registering his second pro knockout ‘Big Sexy’ was off celebrating with his Dublin faithful, packed inside the Red Cow hotel. While Turner’s debut opponent, Hungary’s Zoltan Elekes, lasted a mere eight seconds his compatriot Istvan Ruzsinszky did at least manage to reach the fourth and final round. His efforts were rewarded with a spiteful left hook that landed with such devastating finality that referee Emile Tiedt waved it off without counting.
“It was great, I‘m delighted with that. I got the three rounds in and then took him out in the last,” buzzed Turner minutes after the destruction.
“It just goes to show now that the fitness is getting there and I was still working hard in the last round. He was tough and I was hitting him with some shots to the body and I was losing a lot of energy because I was putting them in harder and then I realised that it wasn’t hurting him too much.”
Turner switched codes off the back of a successful amateur career and agreed professional terms with Belfast’s Alan ‘Alio’ Wilton. He’s wasted little time acquainting himself with the pro game and clearly possesses the type of punching power to frighten potential future rivals.
“I’m a good body puncher but he was taking some of them on the gloves but then he just dropped his hands and went for me. I leaned back and caught him with the left hook and that was it, sparked,” surmised Sean.
“As I said, once I catch you clean there’s no one going to stand in my way or stay up, they’re going to sleep. Whoever. I want some big fights and some big money but it’s only my second fight so a few more to go yet.”
