Caroline Dubois claimed the first stoppage of her professional career with a brutal first-round victory over Martina Horgasz at Wembley Arena on Saturday.
Dubois, making her second professional appearance, displayed her power with a ruthless display on the undercard of Richard Riakporhe’s cruiserweight showdown with Deion Jumah, live on Sky Sports.
After producing a convincing points victory on her pro debut in Cardiff last month, Dubois, who is developing under the tutelage of trainer Shane McGuigan, this time needed just 49 seconds to overcome her Hungarian opponent.
The 21-year-old immediately landed a series of punches to the head, before switching her attack to the body, with a thudding right hand leaving Horgasz unable to continue.

“It’s crazy, it doesn’t feel real to be honest,” Dubois told Sky Sports.
“All week, and all camp, Shane has been working on body shots and sitting down on my punches.”
Dubois moves to 2-0 as a professional, as she looks to follow up an amateur career that ended with a 37-3 record and saw her represent Team GB in Tokyo last year.
“What I see in the gym every day is an unbelievable talent,” McGuigan said
“She is calm, has amazing vision, great punching power and good balance.
“You’re going to see it all once she starts getting tested.”
