Boxing news: Daniel Dubois destroys Ebenezer Tetteh with brutal first-round knockout

Daniel Dubois knocked out Ebenezer Tetteh in brutal fashion to win the Commonwealth heavyweight title on Friday night at the Royal Albert Hall.

The 22-year-old streamrolled through his unprepared opponent, who looked nervous from the off as he forgot his gumshield before entering the ring.

It turned out that, if Tetteh were nervous, he had every right to be.

Dubois’ jab caught the Ghanaian’s attention early on before a huge right hand put him on the canvas with a minute remaining in round one.

Tetteh bravely rose to his feet and fought on, but was pummelled by a series of further shots and fell once again.

This time the referee called a halt to the contest, judging he was in no position to continue.

With the victory, Dubois added the Commonwealth title to his British crown as he continues his ‘Every Belt’ campaign.

He told talkSPORT.com earlier this week: “Whoever comes first, I’ll deal with them.

“I want to be the best and go down as a legend of the sport.

“So whoever I have to beat, I’ve got to do it.”
