Anthony Fowler claimed a bizarre one-round win over late stand-in Theophilus Tetteh at the Manchester Arena to stay on course for a rematch with bitter rival Scott Fitzgerald.

Tetteh, who replaced injured Jack Flatley, struggled to stay upright due to an apparent lack of grip with his boots and was dropped three times in the opener before the fight was waved off.

Afterwards Fowler vowed revenge over Preston super-welterweight Fitzgerald, who claimed a hard-fought split decision when they met at the Liverpool Arena 12 months ago.

Jack Cullen landed a lovely right hand to win his fight in just the second round

Jack Cullen stopped Tomas Andres Reynoso in two rounds to return to winning ways.

Cullen, who lost to Commonwealth middleweight champion Felix Cash in November, started well behind his long jab in the opener but was caught by Reynoso's counters.

However, the Bolton middleweight dropped Reynoso with a short right early in the second and after the Argentine made it unsteadily to his feet the referee waved off the fight.

Robbie Davies Jr secured a shutout win over Damian Leonardo Yapur in his first fight since teaming up with new trainer Dominic Ingle.

Davies Jr dominated the Argentine over eight rounds to claim an 80-72 decision on his return to the ring after losing to super-lightweight rival Lewis Ritson in a domestic thriller in October.

Dalton Smith claimed his third straight stoppage with a TKO victory over Benson Nyilawila.

The former amateur star from Sheffield dropped southpaw Nyilawila in every round before the referee's intervention in the fourth to extend his record in the pro ranks to 5-0.
