Felix Cash wasted no time in claiming Commonwealth champion after he overpowered his Nigerian opponent Rasheed Abolaji in the first round.
The unbeaten 25-year-old quickly produced a ruthless performance to pick up the Commonwealth middleweight strap, flooring Abolaji twice to prompt the swift intervention of referee Marcus McDonnell at The O2.
Cash had just started to find the range with his jab when a stiff left hand sent Abolaji toppling backwards to the canvas.
After knocking Abolaji down with a jab Cash tried to unload more hurtful punches on Abolaji, only to receive a stiff counter, although he answered with his own right hand that dropped his Nigerian opponent more heavily onto his front.
With Abolaji struggling to regain his feet, referee McDonnell waved off the fight which ended at 2:45 of the first round.
