REECE BELLOTTI once again showed his immense power as he stopped Jason Cunningham in the sixth round to win the Commonwealth title.
The 26-year-old was behind on the scorecards before he knocked out his opponent, as he improved his record to 11-0 with ten KOs.
After a close opening four rounds, Cunningham was floored with a huge right hook in the fifth as he just about made it to hear the bell.
And Bellotti managed to force a stoppage early into the sixth after a flurry of punches that caused the referee to step in.
It was the first time Cunningham suffered defeat by KO, as ‘The Bomber’ proved why he is one of the most feared featherweights in Britain.
Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed to SunSport earlier on in the week that the next step for Bellotti is a crack at the famous Lonsdale belt.
Ted Cheeseman showed why he is becoming one of the most talked about super welterweights with a stunning eight round KO against Panama’s Aristides Quintero.
