BRADLEY Saunders made it nine wins out of nine after stopping Scotland’s Mitch Prince in Newcastle.

The 28-year-old had sold somewhere in the region of a 1,000 tickets at the Metro Radio Arena for the Saturday night show headlined by the IBF world title derby between Stuart Hall and Martin Ward.

And he wowed his fans with an exciting fourth-round destruction of the South African-born opponent who had never been stopped in his career.

The Segefield boxer put Prince down in the first with a left-right combination but the Cumbernauld opponent survived.

Saunders was less rushed in round two and had success because of it but in the third he thumped in a series of lefts to the body of Prince.

Round four proved the decisive action.

Twice the aggressive Saunders put down Prince and twice the underdog was up at eight.

But when Bradley put him down for a third tme just seconds later, referee Andrew Wrifght never even bothered to start a count.
