Anthony “The Tyger” Hanshaw Showed lot of Heart in Loss on ESPN Friday Night Fights

On a broadcast of ESPN Friday Night Fights this past Friday, Anthony “Tony the Tyger” Hanshaw (now 23-3-2) of Kernersville, North Carolina faced Farah Ennis (21-1) of Philadelphia in a scheduled 10-round bout. The fight took place at the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Washington.

Hanshaw started out well in the first round, appearing more the aggressor and connecting well toward the end of the round. Ennis may have gotten the better of Hanshaw in rounds 2 and 3, but Hanshaw had a very good 4th round, coming out strong and catching Ennis with a lot of good shots.

The 5th round may have been the best for Hanshaw. His better moments came with less than a minute to go in the round when he got Ennis against the ropes and connected with a series of punches.

In the 6th round, commentator Teddy Atlas’ scorecard showed Hanshaw winning 48-47, with Hanshaw winning rounds 1, 4, and 5. Viewers voting their scores on Friday Night Fights' Facebook page showed fans giving Hanshaw the same rounds (1, 4 and 5); Hanshaw up 3 rounds to 2. Near the end of the sixth round, Ennis connected with a great uppercut to Hanshaw’s jaw.

With about a minute remaining in the 7th round, Hanshaw once again gets Ennis against the ropes and attacks.  

The 8th was somewhat slow paced, but about midway into the 9th, Ennis connects with a right hand that seemed to almost drop Hanshaw.

Round 10 was all Ennis. He floors Hanshaw at 2:23 remaining with a punch to the head that appeared to look more like a push with the hand and glove. Not connecting solidly. Hanshaw got up and didn’t appear any different than before the knockdown. Ennis did connect several more times with hard shots, but Hanshaw survived the round.
