Former five-time national amateur boxing champion Charlie Stevens boxed for the first time since rejoining March ABC on Friday.
Stevens took on Mickey Parsons, of Broad Plain Boxing Club, at a dinner show in Bristol.
The March boxer landed heavy shots in the first couple of rounds and in the second round knocked Parsons to the canvas with a body shot.
Both boxers showed tiredness in the third round but Stevens was crowned winner by unanimous decision.
Bernie Wing, of March ABC, said: “It was the best bout of the night. Charlie needed this bout but he has a long way to go.”
