Dubois Claims Commonwealth Title with First Round Stoppage

Daniel Dubois is now the Commonwealth champion after demolishing Ebenever Tetteh inside a round at Kensington’s Royal Albert Hall.

A visibly nervous Tetteh was overmatched from the outset as Dubois came out immediately with bad intentions, and viciously punished his counterpart with a powerful left jab.

Tetteh offered minimal resistance and it became evident that this was going to be a short night, before Dubois landed an exquisite combination followed by a concussive straight right that left Tetteh on the canvas in a crumpled heap.

The Ghanaian somehow made it to his feet but was almost immediately decked again after shipping more devastating headshots, before the referee intervened to save Tetteh from sustaining any further punishment.

Dubois now extends his perfect record to 13-0 with 12 knockouts, after approximately thirty months fighting as a professional.

On the undercard, meanwhile, after an underwhelming display in the opening three rounds, Archie Sharp spectacularly decked Declan Geraughty with a single punch in the fourth to retain his WBO European super-featherweight title.

Nicola Adams also successfully defended her WBO flyweight title against Maria Salinas, after a closely-contested encounter was deemed a split-draw, while Willy Hutchinson and Bilal Ali also registered victories against their respective opponents.
