Anth Hardy’s challenge for the vacant British Promoters light-welterweight Challenge belt ended in just 30 seconds in Rotherham.
The Hartlepool & Horden boxer was knocked out by a devastating combination by Sheffield’s Sam O’maison.
It was a brutal display of power by the 24-year-old, who caught his fellow southpaw cold at the Magna Centre.
Referee Howard Foster did not even start a count, immediately stopping the bout and removing Hardy’s gumshield.
Thankfully, Hardy recovered quickly and after a medical check was declared OK to return hoime with his family and fans.
