Kilburn middleweight Alan ‘Avalanche’ Higgins recorded his third stoppage in a row by knocking out Matteo Cecchetto at York Hall on Sunday.

The 24-year-old soon found his range and unleashed a barrage of blows that stopped Cecchetto midway through the second round.

Higgins, who hopes to fight again early in the new year, has yet to go anywhere near the distance in any of his three professional contests.

He started out with a first-round victory over Emmanuel Moussinga before stopping Richard Hajdu in the second round of his next bout.
