22:41 GMT, 13 October 2012
Chris Eubank Jnr won every round against Latvian journeyman Ruslans Pojonisevs to maintain his unbeaten start to his fledgling career.
The 23-year-old middleweight's unblemished record now reads seven without defeat after his latest victory at Bluewater in Kent.
After making his trademark entrance to the ring by jumping the ropes, Eubank Jnr dominated from the first bell as Pojonisevs, 29, barely through a punch in the opening round.

The Latvian attempted to pose himself in the second stanza but he faced an uphill battle against a taller and rangier opponent.
Eubank Jnr, never afraid to take a punch in order to land his own, looked calm and assured as he stalked his adversary round the ring.
Fighting over eight rounds for the first time, Eubank Jnr stepped on the gas at the start of the fourth round as he landed with a flurry of combinations. The durable Pojonisevs withstood the pressure however but his own wild shots never looked like connecting.

The subsequent session followed a similar pattern with Eubank Jnr pinning the older man to the ropes but again he was unable to finish the job.
Pojonisevs had lost nine of his last ten fights but hasn't been stopped in almost two years and that looked set to remain the case as the fight entered the penultimate round. Indeed, the final six minutes were largely uneventful as the visiting fighter took the best Eubank Jnr had to offer.
After a final flurry from the young star, he was awarded the victory by 80 points to 72.
