Boston boxer Callum Johnson extended his undefeated professional record to seven matches on Saturday night as he emphatically beat Egidijus Kakstys.

Despite not fighting for the past year, Johnson showed no sign of ring rust as he dominated this bout from the first bell.

And before the second round had ended, the Lithuanian’s corner knew their man was beaten as they threw in the towel.

This was just the Commonwelath games gold medallist’s second fight in the space of two years - due to contractual issues with his former promoter Frank Warren - but Johnson certainly impressed the crown at North Hykeham’s North Kesteven Leisure Centre.
