The undercard bout at Podpromie Arena in Rzeszow, Poland on Friday night saw Garcia floor Plawecki through the ropes.

The Cuban, 28, is now 13 matches unbeaten having previously beat Dmytro Fedas in February.

But unfortunately for Plawecki’s this marked his second professional career defeat, and it was indeed a worrying moment for him.

Early into the second round Garcia hit a left hook that saw the Pole slumped to the ground.

But as he fell onto the ropes he fell through but luckily still remained in the ring.

As he desperately tried to stand up to continue the fight he fell back down again.

The referee then ultimately called off the match, leaving Garcia with an early victory.

Shortly after Okolie made an emphatic return as knocked out fellow pole Rozanski.

The victory saw the Brit become a two-weight world champion as he fought for the time since loosing his WBO cruiserweight belt to Chris Billam-Smith last May.

Okolie moves to 20-1 as a professional in his quest to head to the heavyweight division, while for Rozanski it marked a first career defeat.

The Hackney fighter knocked down Rozanski three times before the referee eventually waved off the fight as the home favourite struggled to rise to his feet.
