Callum Smith needed less than two minutes to claim a stunning victory over Hadillah Mohoumadi and win the European super-middleweight title at Liverpool's Echo Arena.
Frenchman Mohoumadi came out swinging but Smith responded in emphatic fashion and, after pinning his opponent to the ropes in a barrage of punches, the referee called a halt to proceedings.
The fight lasted just one minute and 41 seconds, a result that leaves the highly-rated Smith with a perfect record of 19 wins from 19 bouts as well as the chance of a WBC world title fight.
The 25-year-old Liverpudlian, who beat Rocky Fielding with a first-round knock-out to win the British title in November, said: " I've always claimed I'm not a big puncher but my record suggests different now and I do believe that when I get in the changing room and get the gloves on I can hurt anyone in the word."
Promoter Eddie Hearn added of Smith on Sky Sports 1: "The man's going to dominate the super middleweight division for years to come. He's a scary, scary man."
