Also on the bill, Lee Churcher won the WBF Intercontinental middleweight title following a second-round knockout of Hungarian Balazs Horvath at Pill Millennium Centre.

Newport’s Churcher, 35, came out all guns blazing and had his opponent on the canvas twice before landing the all-important blow which Horvath couldn’t recover from.

Horvath had already found himself on the canvas twice in round one, first through a slip and then a Churcher push, before a right hook sent him down again.

Churcher floored Horvath with an uppercut in the next and again thanks to a crunching right, and that proving to be the punch that gave the Welshman the belt.
