British light-heavyweight champion Hosea Burton (12st 8lbs 7oz) kept busy ahead of a proposed title defence against Frank Buglioni by stopping Mexico’s Fernando Castaneda (12st 7lbs 2oz).

The tall, rangy Burton (now 18-0, 9 KOs) can be a dangerous prospect when he is allowed to operate at his ideal distance and found his mark in round three.

Some picture perfect right hands and uppercut did the business, and after three knockdowns the fight was waved off at 2.18 of the third. Castaneda (24-11, 15 early) deserves credit for going down swinging. As a form guide, Buglioni stopped the Mexican visitor in five rounds last July.
