Daniel Dubois won the Commonwealth heavyweight title with a first-round stoppage victory against Ebenezer Tetteh at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
The 22-year-old, who won the British title in his last fight in July, delivered another dominant display to extend his perfect record in the professional ranks to 13-0.
Dubois had stopped 11 of his 12 previous opponents ahead of Friday’s fight and dismissed his 31-year-old Ghanaian opponent who was fighting outside of his home country for the first time.
The Londoner landed a powerful body shot before dropping Tetteh midway through the first round with a right hook.
After Tetteh rose back to his feet Dubois followed up with a left-right combination, before the referee promptly called a halt to the fight.
Earlier, Nicola Adams retained her WBO flyweight title after a controversial split decision draw with Mexico’s Maria Salinas.
Former world amateur champion and Olympic gold medallist Adams had not fought for 11 months and produced a lacklustre performance on her return to the ring.
Salinas felt she had won the fight, but only one judge gave it to her by the score of 96-94 as another judge scored it 97-93 to Adams, with a third seeing it as a 95-95 draw.
Adams made a confident start during a one-sided beginning across the opening three rounds, but Salinas responded and caught the British boxer with accurate punches in the second half of the fight.
