Brutal Haskins sends out message to Champions
Lee Haskins sent a powerful message to the world's elite bantamweights by stopping Belfast's Luke Wilton with a devastating display of power punching at the City Academy in Bristol tonight.
Forced to take a marking time non-title fight while he waits for a shot at a version of the world title, the 30-year-old Lockleaze-based southpaw overwhelmed Wilton, a late stand in for Cobbina Johnson.
Having taken the fight at short notice, the Irishman was left wishing he had stayed home in Belfast after being stopped in the second round by the classy British champion.
Degale could face world champion after victory in Bristol
James DeGale could be challenging for the WBC super middleweight championship in his next fight after a confident display against Gevorg Khatchikian, stopping the formerly unbeaten Armenian in the eleventh round at the City Academy, Bristol.
In the opener, DeGale (12st) put pressure on Khatchikian (11st 10lbs) and got through with a couple of cuffing jab-cum-hooks which Khatchikian looked embarrassed to have eaten, but the Armenian was more aggressive and industrious in the second. A head clash opened a cut above DeGale's left eye, and he got caught with a few counters in the third, but turned on the style for the remainder of the round, switching from southpaw to orthodox repeatedly.
Khatchikian had moments of success in the fourth too, but DeGale seemed content to walk through his shots and made a fast start to the fifth and sixth rounds, which he dominated.
Khatchikian's brightest spell came in the seventh, when he put DeGale in retreat and got through with an uppercut and a right hand counter which started a brief period of control, taking the round with DeGale on the back foot.
