At the top of a prospect-laden Frank Warren promoted bill at York Hall on Friday, David Adeleye claimed the vacant WBO European heavyweight title with a second round stoppage of Dmytro Bezus.

Both men came into this scheduled ten rounder unbeaten, with Adeleye (11-0, 10 KOs) gradually stepping up in class with each fight, and Bezus (10-1, 5 KOs) fighting in the UK for the first time.

It was a swift start from Adeleye, and Bezus walked on to a stiff left hand that dropped him with just over a minute gone in the opener.

It was a flash knockdown, and the visitor easily saw out the round, but the fight was all over in the very next round, as the home favourite caught the Ukrainian with a right to the body followed by a huge left hand that dumped the 33-year-old to the canvas, where referee Bob Williams called a halt to proceedings.

Chamberlain blows away Lenti

Mark Chamberlain made a successful first defence of his IBF European lightweight title, as he knocked out Vairo Lenti (10-5-1, 1 KO) in the fifth of their scheduled ten rounder.

The contest was a relatively close one, until Chamberlain (12-0, 8 KOs) uncorked a massive left hand that crumpled the Italian, and the fight was waved off.

Turner sees off Armas

Henry Turner defended his WBC International Silver super lightweight title for the first time, as he dropped Zeus de Armas (15-3-1, 4 KOs) three times on the way to a seventh round stoppage win.

A left hand decked the visitor in the third round, and he was down by a right to the body in the following frame.

The end came three rounds later, as Turner (10-0, 3 KOs) sunk in another right hand to the body that dropped the Spaniard once more, and the referee had seen enough.

Bourke back to winning ways

Chris Bourke returned to the ring after losing in a British title tilt to Marc Leach last year, and he got back on track with a third round stoppage of Darwin Martinez at featherweight.

Martinez (7-10-2, 6 KOs) was dropped in the second, and down twice in round three, with a body shot finishing the job for Bourke (11-1, 7 KOs).

Remaining Undercard

Carl Fail (8-0, 2 KOs) remained unbeaten, winning every round of six against the always game Serge Ambomo (9-40-3, 4 KOs) at super welterweight.

Royston Barney-Smith (5-0, 3 KOs) blasted out the experienced Lesther Lara (17-16-2, 7 KOs) in the opening round of their four rounder at lightweight.

A sneaky right hand to the body had the Nicaraguan out for the full count in just over 60 seconds.

Adan Mohamed (8-0, 2 KOs) banked a routine six round points win at featherweight against Francisco Rodriguez (1-10, 1 KO).

Aloys Junior (3-1, 3 KOs) extended his winning streak to three, as he took care of Jiri Krejci (1-4-2, KO) inside a round at cruiserweight. Body shots did the damage, and the Czech was unable to continue.
