It's been a good Twenty-five-year old Callum Smith scored an impressive stoppage in his native Liverpool, dispatching France's Hadillah Mohoumadi in just 1:41. This is Smith's second-consecutive first-round knockout, as he blew away domestic rival Rocky Fielding in 2:45 last November.
Some folks over on Twitter scrounged up a clip of the finish.

Smith (19-0, 14 KO) is the second-youngest member of BoxRec's super middleweight top-10, just behind Gilberto Ramirez. He's big for the weight at 6'3" and his power looks devastating. Mohoumadi (20-4-1, 15 KO) had never been stopped before, taking Nikola Sjekloca ten rounds and James DeGale twelve back in 2012.
In the co-main event, the aforementioned Fielding (22-1, 12 KO) got off the canvas in to narrowly edge Christopher Rebrasse (24-5-3, 6 KO), who reportedly troubled Smith something awful despite his knockout percentage. There aren't any booming shouts of "robbery," as far as I can tell, but it definitely wasn't what Fielding wanted.
