Paddy Barnes put in one of the best performances of his career. Carl Frampton’s return…

Carl Frampton's return to the ring saw a fantastic turnout in Belfast's SSE Arena on Saturday night, and the atmosphere for the local fighters on the card was something truly spectacular to watch.

Paddy Barnes put in one of the best performances of his career to register his first KO as a professional, but Jamie Conlan was unfortunately not as successful as he was stopped in the 6th round of his title fight by Jerwin Ancajas.

In the main event of the night Carl Frampton claimed a unanimous decision victory – despite a few scares – against Horacio Garcia, but the most dramatic moment of the night came far before The Jackal made his entrance.

In a fight between two South African boxers, Zolani Tete set a new record for the fastest KO in a world title fight as he knocked Siboniso Gonya out cold with his very first punch just six seconds after the bell.

The referee called the fight off for an official time of 11 seconds having realised that Gonya was out and not fit to continue.

The replays showed how clean and devastating a shot it was after Gonya took a few minutes to come around.

Right as the commentator was claiming that Zolani Tete is one of the most avoided fighters in his weight class we were educated as to why, his incredible power has him now on a 10 fight win streak with a record of 26-3.
