Bradley Skeete was given the royal seal of approval by boxing enthusiasts following his impressive performance at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in West Kensington last Saturday.
The 24-year-old welterweight from Battersea took one minute and 57 seconds to stop the previously unbeaten Crawley-based Ross Payne.

Referee Richie Davis called an immediate halt to the scheduled eight rounder from the moment Payne sucker-punched to the canvas by a massive right hand.

"When the right hand came over to him it was good night," said the former Earlsfield ABC representative who now moves to eight straight wins.

"I'm surprised he got up to be honest.

"I had a few people criticising my power and things like that but at the end of the day as I always said I'm in it for the long run."

Skeete's next fight in September will be for the Southern Area welterweight title which is currently held by Croydon's Chas Symonds.

"I am now going to relax for a couple of weeks before I go back to the gym and prepare for the Southern Area title in September," he said.
