Ben Whittaker made it two for two to begin his professional career as he outclassed Petar Nosic.
The 25-year-old won at the Jeddah Superdome in Saudi Arabia.
Whittaker, who is managed by Anthony Joshua’s 258 Management team, outpointed the Croatian-based Bosnian over six rounds.
The fight came as part of the supporting cast to the aforementioned Joshua’s redemption mission against Oleksandr Usyk as the pair rematch for the WBA Super, IBF, IBO and WBO world heavyweight titles as well as Tyson Fury’s recently-relinquished Ring Magazine belt.
The three judges at ringside handed in tallies of 60-54 and 59-55 twice.
‘The Surgeon’ made his professional debut just three weeks ago, at the Bournemouth International Centre, but the Tokyo silver medallist looks likely to remain active.
“Second fight, undefeated opponent, I just tried to box to the game-plan,” said Whittaker, according to Sky Sports, after he featured as part of the non-pay-per-view portion of the card.
“The coach wanted me to work behind the jab, keep it nice and composed and mature performance and that’s what I did.
“I switched off trying to look a bit too sexy at times, but that’s just me.
“All I’ve got to do is keep listening to my team, work behind my jab and feints and I’ll be there.”
Whittaker is expected to be back in action sooner rather than later, with 258 revealing during this fight week that he is set to return within a month.
Meanwhile, Ramla Ali made history by becoming the first female to fight –– and win –– in the kingdom.
The girl who is now trained by Manny Robles was in against Crystal Nova, whose wins to date had all come by stoppage, and managed to inflict a third defeat on her opponent to move to 7-0.
Ali revealed, after getting the win with a thumping first-round right-hand finish, that she had been fighting injured in recent times and that she would now be set for a spell on the sidelines.
Andrew Tabiti made it three wins by stoppage since losing in Latvia to Yuniel Dorticos three years ago with a fifth-round retirement of James Wilson.
The 32-year-old American was originally set to meet Tyrone Spong on the card, but ended up in with formerly-unbeaten Wilson and moved to 20-1 (16 KOs) with the victory.
Southpaw Daniel Lapin improved his record to six unbeaten after dominating Josef Jurko over eight rounds, unanimously earning three 80-72 scorecards.
But YouTube star Rashed ‘Money Kicks’ Belhasa was on the wrong end of a split decision against the previously-winless Traycho Georgiev as he suffered defeat on his professional debut.
