Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow, Scotland - It took Dereck Chisora nine hard-fought rounds to get the rid of Argentinean heavyweight journeyman Hector Alfredo Avila. It took Anthony Joshua nine times less to do the same, as the latest super heavyweight Olympic gold medalist has blitzed his opponent in 2 minutes and 14 seconds of the first round. Joshua (5-0, 5 KOs) got the job done with a cracking left hook to the temple of Avila. The latter could possibly carry on but chose not to continue. He is now 22-16-1, with 14 KOs.

John Murray (33-2, 20 KOs) got the first significant win after his two-year long lay-off (following his spirited loss to Brandon Rios in 2011), as he blitzed through capable but sliding Scottish veteran John Simpson (25-11, 11 KOs) in two rounds.

After an even opener, Murray began to tee off Simpson in the second round. But the most damaging were body blows. Simpson went down in pain three times in the second after vicious Murray's body shots. He jumped up after each knocked down but he was unable to convince the referee he was ready to go on after the third one. Time of stoppage was 2:58 of the round. A nice win for the former world title challenger.
