Local boxer Nathan Decastro made short work of his opponent at the Connaught Rooms in Bradford last night.
The Lincoln-based boxer knocked out Dmitrys Ovsjannikovs of Russia after only 34 seconds into the fight.
A spokesperson for Ovsjannikovs said that his fighter “had been hit by a sledgehammer.”
Decastro was scheduled to take on Daniel Sowah but he missed a connecting flight and so the Russian stepped in at the last minute.
Frank Decastro, Nathan’s father, told SportsLinc today that Nathan would carry on training hard in this country before travelling to America in April in preparation for his first fight in the States the following month.
