Tyson’s Fury While comforting an Australian boxer after his first professional defeat this week, British boxer Campbell told Somerville: “I’ve met faces like this many times.”
Somerville was heading 3-0 into his fight against Isaias Sette on Wednesday, May 24, but the bleeding and injured 26-year-old lost a tech knockout in the fourth round as his corner threw in the towel in Melbourne.
WBC heavyweight champion Fury, who was there to support teammate Joseph Parker, then consoled Somerville backstage at Margaret Court Arena.
“This is a fighting game, man,” said Fury, 34. “In boxing, sometimes you win, (sometimes) you lose.
“Even if you win, sometimes you get caught,” the undefeated Briton added. “I have seen such faces many times. Just go back and keep doing what you have to do.
“Let’s take a picture together, shall we?”
New Zealand heavyweight Parker did better on Wednesday, stopping the Faiga Opelu in the first round of the main event.
Meanwhile, Fury’s next fight is yet to be confirmed. However, Demsey McKean’s manager revealed this week that Talks continue between undefeated heavyweights.
Fury last boxed in December, stopping Derek Chisora in London for a third win over the 39-year-old Briton and defending the WBC title.
