Callum Simpson gained an impressive three-round stoppage win over Celso Neves on his television debut at Manchester Arena.
The 26-year-old super-middleweight from Barnsley was roared on by vocal supporters with several Barnsley FC players in the crowd including Liam Kitching who walked with him to the ring and sat ringside.
Simpson knocked his Swiss opponent down inside the first minute after a powerful right hand to the head.
He floored him again with another right-handed shot in the third round and the referee called the fight off.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
