Daniel Dubois made it six knockouts from six professional fights by dismantling Dorian Darch at the Copperbox Arena in London.
The 20-year-old, towering heavyweight was in action on the undercard of James DeGale’s homecoming and made short work of his opponent.
Dubois was up against a heavyweight journeyman who had previously stepped in with IBF and WBA (Super) champion, Anthony Joshua.
And Darch was in trouble from the first bell, just as he was when fought Joshua, as Dubois’ steely right hand landed early.
Dubois kept landing and almost put his fellow Brit away inside the first round, before the bell saved a dazed Darch.
But, there was no let up from Dubois who knocked Darch down three times in a row with some thundering right hooks.
The referee eventually had seen enough and called the contest off to hand Dubois another stoppage victory.
Dubois moves into 2018 with an unblemished record and his reputation soaring despite his young age.
Joshua put Darch away in the second round at the exact same moment as Dubois and the young fighter will be pleased to have matched the heavyweight champion.
Frank Warren, Dubois’ promoter, could not help but big up his fighter after the impressive stoppage.
He said: ‘If I said to him tomorrow you’re fighting Anthony Joshua, he’d say what time shall I be there.’
