Former Dale Youth amateur Daniel Dubois is the new WBO European heavyweight champion after stopping Razvan Cojanu at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday night.
The pair met on a Frank Warren show at the iconic venue, with the 21-year-old winning in the second round.
Dubois started fast with stiff left jabs in the first round, before catching his Romanian rival with a cluster of blows in the second.
That forced Cojanu against the ropes and it was a right over the top from Duvois that did the damage, dropping the Romanian to the canvas and forcing referee Steve Gray to bring proceedings to an early end.
