Ohara Davies overpowered Logan Yoon and forced a seventh-round stoppage at York Hall to progress in the Golden Contract super-lightweight tournament.

'Two Tanks' eased into things in London, sizing up his man, before hammering away with his thunderous right hand to book his semi-final spot.

Yoon did have success of his own but, after a heavy-handed assault in the seventh, the Honolulu man's corner decided he had shipped enough punishment.

Davies told Sky Sports afterwards: "The guy had an amazing chin, I was thinking 'what is going on.'

"I want to get a burger now. The joy I have now is unspeakable joy. This is the humble OD."

Jeff Ofori only got a place in the Golden Contract tournament at 48 hours notice

London's Jeff Ofori - after coming in at just 48 hours notice - edged out Keiran Gething to book his spot in the semis.

The three judges could not split the pair after 10 rounds of nip-and-tuck action, scoring things a draw, the referee deciding Ofori, who was perhaps the busier and more heavy-handed, should progress.

Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz is on Sunday morning at 2am, live on Sky Sports, after Callum Smith vs John Ryder on Saturday night.
