The 32-year-old’s dream came true when the referee was forced to intervene in the second round, with him landing punch after punch without response on his fellow Brit.

After a cagey opening round which saw Grundy take his opponent the floor, the fight exploded into life in the second with both fighters exchanging blows.

Narimani came out lively but Grundy remained composed with Narimani’s best shot not bothering him at all.
