Norfolk fighter in destructive mood at Wembley Arena

Cruiserweight Tommy Fletcher produced another destructive display at the OVO Wembley Arena last night to take his professional record to 6-0.

The Hockwold-cum-Wilton fighter forced a TKO stoppage against Spaniard Alberto Tapia after his opponent’s corner threw in the towel in the fourth round.

It was another stunning finish from Fletcher, 21, whose rapid combinations to the body and some spiteful work to the head left his opponent in desperate trouble.

The Attleborough Boxing Club graduate had Tapia on the canvas three times before the eventual stoppage.

Tapia was hurt with a powerful body shot in the first as his Norfolk opponent piled on the pressure in front of a vociferous crowd.

The Spaniard responded well to his first knockdown, keeping himself standing, but was floored again by Fletcher before being saved by the bell.

Fletcher continued the onslaught in the second round, leaving his opponent floored with a spiteful jab and there was no let-up in the next as another vicious body shot left Tapia on the canvas again.

The Norfolk Nightmare warmed up for the fight by flying out to Las Vegas to train with heavyweight Joe Joyce, who was beaten by Zhilei Zhang later in the evening.
