Sam Eggington took less than two minutes to get back to winning ways

Sam Eggington and Frankie Gavin both played their part in setting up a Birmingham showdown after earning stoppage victories.

The two Birmingham welterweights proved too strong for their outclassed opponents on the undercard of local favourite Josh Warrington's battle with Patrick Hyland in Leeds on Saturday night.

Eggington got back to his explosive best and pummelled Daza Usher early on, landing a barrage of punches on the ropes, before the referee had seen enough. 

Gavin - having his first fight since losing to Kell Brook last year - took slightly longer to get rid of Croatian Ivo Gogosevic, the fight stopped in the sixth and final round.

Elsewhere, Jake Ball made it six out of six with an explosive first round stoppage of Krzysztof Golec.

'The Blade' put his man down with a blistering barrage and although he got up, the light-heavyweight prospect pounced on him forcing the ref to step in.

Felix Cash stepped up in only his second pro fight, stopping the experienced Edgars Sniedze in two, while super-featherweight Reece Mould went 2-0 as well, out-pointing Qasim Hussain.

Vincent Feigenbutz, the Sauerland's super-middleweight, warmed up for a clash with compatriot Mike Keta in September, with a second-round stoppage against Wilmer Gonzalez.

The first Hull fighter in the ring on a night when Luke Campbell and Tommy Coyle were high on the bill was Connor Seymour, the middleweight, who beat journeyman Liam Griffiths over four rounds.
