Chatteris star Jordan Gill stretched his perfect professional record to 20 fights last Saturday.
The featherweight prospect enjoyed a points success against former Irish amateur champion Carl McDonald at the O2 Arena in London.
Irishman McDonald was a late change of opponent for Gill after intended rival, David Berna of Hungary, pulled out of the contest.
Gill won all six rounds during a smooth success on the undercard of stablemate Tony Bellew’s repeat win against David Haye.
Gill said: “The experience of boxing on such a big show will stand me in good stead for the big championship fights that are ahead in my career.
