Undercard results:

Cheavon Clarke is the new British cruiserweight champion after scoring a knockout in eight rounds with one second left of the session.

Irishman Paddy Donovan turned the screw in the eighth and ninth rounds to round off a dominant performance against a past-his-prime Lewis Ritson. Giving away weight and having far more miles on the clock didn’t help Ritson, who was almost beaten into submission the round before the end. Howard Foster stepped in to save Ritson in the ninth.

After a hard-fought battle, Gary Cully carded a ten-round decision win over Francesco Patera. Judges card unanimously for Cully 98-92 and 96-94 twice.

Super Featherweight Giorgio Visioli recorded a third straight professional victory by stopping Sergio Odabai in the fourth round. George Liddard celebrated his first move up to eight rounds at middleweight by taking just one to blast out Graham McCormack. Kicking off the pre-show, Super Welterweight Emmanuel Buttigieg moved to 4-0 by defeating Anas Isarti over the six-round distance.
