Zelfa Barrett knocked out Jordy McCorry in the ninth round to defend his Commonwealth super-featherweight title on Josh Warrington’s undercard on Saturday night.
The ‘Brown Flash’ was dropped by a low blow from his opponent just one round earlier, and got revenge with the stoppage.
The action initially heated up in round three as Barrett floored McCorry with a brutal body shot.
In the sessions that followed, Zelfa was warned multiple times for low blows, but not deducted a point.
He then scored a second knockdown in round eight, before his opponent saved himself by smashing Barrett back with a low blow of his own.

This caused the champion to crouch to the ground – he was given time to recover and it was not scored a knockdown.
However, this incident only delayed the inevitable as Zelfa finished the job in the ninth with another sensational body blow.
He is now 23-1 with 14 KOs.
