Robbie Davies Jnr gained revenge over tough Pole Michael Syrowatka in Liverpool on Saturday night to win back his WBA Continental super-lightweight strap.
In front of over 1,000 fans at the BT Convention Centre next door to Liverpool’s Echo Arena, Davies Jnr put on a stunning performance to avenge his solitary loss.
Syrowatka had scored a massive upset himself last July when dropping and stopping Davies at Wembley Arena, although this time around it was the Briton who took control from the off.
Davies dropped Syrowatka in the third and fourth to take a handy lead into the second half of the contest. As a points win looked on the cards, Davies managed to drop Syrowatka again and eventually force the end in the final session.
Improving to 16-1, Davies has reignited his career after going through a painful time when losing his inspirational father Robbie Snr. just weeks after the loss to Syrowatka last summer.
The 28 year-old is now in line for some huge bouts on the domestic scene with the likes of Ohara Davies, Tyrone Nurse, Jack Catterall and Terry Flanagan all campaigning at the weight class.
On the undercard, Mason Cartwright scored the only other stoppage on the bill when taking out Zaurs Sadihovs in two, whilst Lerrone Richards, Courtney Chadwick, Brian Phillips and heavyweight Rob Beech all remained undefeated with points victories.
Jake Barton made a successful pro debut over four rounds, whilst white collar favourite Lee Boyce out-pointed Darren Snow in what was billed as his retirement fight.
