Telford International Centre, Telford, Great Britain. In the light heavyweight limit (up to 79.4 kg), local challenger Anthony Yard (23-2, 22 KOs) knocked out a bag fighter from Bulgaria
Stephanie Koikova (14-2, 12 KOs).
The underdog briskly began the duel – he rushed at Yard. He was even slightly taken aback by Koikov’s actions. The Briton quickly seized the initiative, soloed, starting from the 2nd three-minute period.
In the 3rd round, Yard exhausted Koikov, shocked him, rushed to finish off and knocked out hard with an uppercut in the corner of the ring.

Yard CO 3.
In January, he has a fight with division leader and WBC, IBF and WBO title holder Artur Beterbiev. Any chance?
