The likelihood of Sean Turner’s eighth pro fight going the distance is slim.
The big-punching Irish heavyweight prospect will be looking to get off the mark in 2016 following a frustrating year so far – which has seen numerous cancelled dates and a no contest – in Marbella on September 24th.
Considering his lack of action, rounds might be desirable, but the man in the opposite corner doesn’t do points wins or defeats.
The undefeated 25 year old takes on Valeri Semiskur in Spain. The Estonia-based Russian has fought 49 times and only 16 of them have gone the distance.
Semiskur has ten knockouts from 18 wins and has been stopped 23 times, and seems to go out on his shield more often than not.
One fighter Semiskur took the distance was Galway’s Collie Barrett in Albania back in 2005. The Russian was also stopped by David Haye in a round a few months earlier and has also lost to former Ian Tims foe Juho Haapoja.
He has been stopped in his last two outings but registered a KO victory in the bout prior to his last two defeats.
For ‘Big Sexy,’ he will hope it’s the first of a number of quick-fire bouts as he looks to kick on to the next level.
