Isaac Dogboe claimed the WBO super-bantamweight title as the undefeated Ghanaian stunned Jessie Magdaleno with a late KO.

Despite being dropped himself in the first, Dogboe recovered to put Magdaleno on the canvas in the fifth before following it up in the eleventh.

Magdaleno went down two more times until the referee Benjy Esteves Jr. stepped in to declare Dogboe the new champion.

Also on the bill in Philadelphia, Jesse Hart halted Desmond Nicholson in seven, Bryant Jennings won the heavyweight battle with Joey Dawejko via a tenth round decision after Olympic stars Robson Conceicao and Shakur Stevenson had both extended their perfect records.

In New York, Danny Jacobs and Jarrell Miller both scored decision wins, whilst Katie Taylor unified the women’s lightweight titles by adding the IBF version to her WBA belt.

Former world champion Arthur Abraham continued his lengthy career with a split win over Patrick Nielsen in Germany, whilst in Spain Kerman Lejarraga took just two rounds to dispatch British world title hopeful Bradley Skeete to claim the vacant European welterweight title
