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.

It was his 11th successive win as a professional.
