Thysse Floors Silvennoinen With Vicious Body Punches
South Africa's Brendon Thysse (Right)toyed with Tomi Silvennoinen from Finland

South Africa’s Brendon Thysse toyed with Tomi Silvennoinen from Finland punching him at will until the Finn gave up in round 10 of their international non-title fight on Saturday.

Thysse, whose camp is considering moving him overseas to get better opponents, easily won the one-sided affair.

The 26-year-old has never been stopped. Before he KO’d Silvennoinen, Thysse had knocked out 11 opponents in 13 wins.

The few times the Finn put together a few punches the taller Thysee easily fended him off. Silvennoinen resorted to holding until he was docked a point.

There were no fans at the Emperors Palace, Kempton Park in Johannesburg, owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the 10th and final round of the Generation NeXt fight, Thysee dropped Silvennoinen twice with vicious body punches.

The second knockdown from a right punch to the short rib was too much for Silvennoinen, who sunk to his knees until it was over.

The referee counted the Finn out.
