It took Ilford Light-Heavyweight beast Anthony Yarde just 2 minutes and 35 seconds to demolish his latest victim Richard Baranyi.

A huge right hand sent the Copper Box visitor sprawling and the follow-up attack persuaded referee Steve Gray to step in and end the contest. 
 
With the crunching win, Yarde claimed the WBO Light-Heavyweight strap and will now take Baranyi’s place in the Top 10 of their World rankings.
 
Yarde was stunning again – mixing levels between body and head, the sound of leather on shuddering skin bellowing out around the ringside seats.

‘It did go completely to plan, the only thing that didn’t was I said I was going to stop him with a straight right hand,’ he joked after his demolition job.
 
‘I dropped him with one but he got up and I was a bit upset from that and that’s why I was aggressive after that.’
