We just witnessed Shannon Courtenay beat Melinda Habran in a fight that was perhaps trickier than she'd have hoped.

Up next, Conor Benn.

Conor Benn wins by knockout!

The 23-year-old lands a devastating left to the head which knocks Jamoye out and he stays down.

He's treated by doctors and rises to his feet - thankfully.

Up next, Lawrence Okolie challenges Yves Ngabu for the European cruiserweight belt.

This presents a massive step up in competition for Okolie, who is making his way through the ranks at a steady pace. 

He makes ring walk right now.

And here comes Ngabu! Walking out to “I got five on it”, banger to be fair.

Round one: Ngabu 9-10 Okolie

Okolie has clearly been working on his inside game and it’s showing, he’s working the body plenty and isn’t looking as awkward as he usually does when the fight isn’t at range.

Every punch he throws is hurting his opponent and he’s using his footwork well to get out of any situations where he’s too close. A good opening round for the Brit.
