Young welterweight Dean Richardson impressed on his second professional outing as he secured a third-round stoppage victory over Ivan Duvancic.

The 20-year-old, who is yet another success story from Dale Youth ABC, made light work of the Croatian at the iconic boxing venue, York Hall, in Bethnal Green on Saturday.

He made himself known early on, going in with a strong left hand, which made his opponent weary of rushing in wildly.

Richardson, who won 12 of his 16 amateur bouts, was stuck behind his jab and moved well off it as he toyed with Duvancic in the opening round, pushing him onto the ropes.

The second round started in similiar vein, with Richardson coming back out on the front foot, doubling up his jab and forcing the pace of the fight.

Duvancic could only sit on the ropes with a high guard and absorb the pressure. Richardson let his hands go to the body and worked the right hook left hand to perfection.

The rest of the round went by with the south Ruislip boxer in control and firmly on the front foot.

A massive left hand started a flurry of shots from Richardson that knocked Duvancic to the canvas, he managed to make referee Lee Cook’s count, but Richardson jumped straight back onto him behind the jab and didn’t give him time to breathe.

A big right body shot from Richardson sent Duvancic to the canvas again where he had trouble breathing, consequently failing to make referee Cook’s count, as the bout was halted one minute and 12 seconds into the third round - which was Richardson’s second stoppage in as many fights since turning professional in November.
