Britain’s Kal Yafai won the WBA super-flyweight title with a unanimous decision over Luis Concepcion.
Yafai dominated from the opening bell, flooring his opponent in the 10th round and winning 120-108, 119-108 and 117-110 on the judges’ scorecards.
The belt could only be won by Yafai after the Panamanian was stripped of it when he failed to make the weight.
The 27-year-old, unbeaten in 21 professional fights, is the first boxer from Birmingham to win a world title.
Yafai had previously held the Commonwealth and British super-flyweight belts, and won a silver medal at the 2010 European Championships during his amateur career.
The fight was part of a packed undercard as Britain’s Anthony Joshua aimed to retain his IBF world heavyweight championship against American Eric Molina.
Liverpool’s Callum Smith stayed on course for a world title shot with a brutal 10th-round knockout of game Lancastrian Luke Blackledge.
Referee Steve Gray could have stopped the fight earlier but allowed the one-sided battering to continue until Blackledge was knocked unconscious.
There were an anxious few minutes as a prone Blackledge was administered oxygen before he gingerly, and mercifully, made it back to his feet.
Smith, 26, successfully defended his British title for the first time and remained unbeaten in 22 pro fights, with 17 knockouts.
He is ranked number one by the WBC but Sweden’s Badou Jack is defending that belt against Britain’s IBF champion James DeGale in January.
In a thrilling light-heavyweight contest, Frank Buglioni stopped Hosea Burton in the 12th and final round to secure the British title.
Manchester’s Burton, 28, built an early lead behind his jab and some ramrod right hands, and the challenger’s face was a bloody mess by the middle rounds.
However, the Londoner’s punches started to have an effect down the stretch and Burton went down under a barrage in the 11th.
Midway through the 12th, Burton was stunned by a right to the temple before going down again. He clambered to his feet but the referee called things off after another assault by Buglioni, with a minute and four seconds remaining.
Buglioni, 27, improves to 19 wins (15 KOs) and two defeats from 22 pro fights and could be rewarded with a second shot at a world title.
Welterweight Conor Benn, son of British legend Nigel, made it six wins out of six with a first-round knockout of Manchester’s Steven Backhouse.
