Former world title challenger Martin Murray delivered a crushing right hook to the body of Arman Torosyan to move to 36-4-1 as he recorded his seventeenth professional KO.

The chief supporting bout was never in question as the St. Helen’s man produced a controlled performance.

The Matchroom fighter won his third successive clash since losing to George Groves and is one step closer to a fifth crack at a world crown.

Zach Parker produced a viscous left hook to send Luke Blackledge to the canvas in the opening round.

As referee Michael Alexander began the ten-count, the 27-year-old attempted to compose himself before stumbling into the ropes.

Parker will now have his eyes on capturing the Lonsdale belt after emerging victorious from the British super-middleweight title eliminator.

Lancashire’s Adam Little put on a dominant performance with the 26-year-old returning to winning ways following a loss to Glenn Foot.

The fight ended 29 seconds into round four following a left hook to the kidney of Reece MacMillan.

Isaac Macleod snatched victory out of Danny Craven’s hands as he marginally defeated the fellow Brit on points with the judge’s verdict 58-57.

The North-East welterweight dug deep as he recovered from a cut above the eye in round two to finish the six-round contest strongly in what was a fight that consisted of heavy exchanges between the pair.

The ‘Rydal Psycho’ Joe Wood made it a fifth consecutive win as he dispatched Bulgaria’s Ilian Marko within three rounds, whilst 22-year-old Stonebridge Boxing Club product Mikael Lawal cruised to a 40-36 points win over Pole Jakub Wojcik.

Lloyd Campbell stretched his undefeated record to 6-0 with a victory over Michal Vosyka after the referee intervened in round two round, whilst Brian Phillips had a fairytale start as he delivered a second-round stoppage of Poland’s Kamil Jaworek on his professional debut.

John Gillies defeated Hungary’s Farenc Zsalek to extend his record to 3-0. The heavyweight won via points with the judges scoring the contest 39-37 in favour of the Brit.
