BOLTON’S Osman Aslam put in superb display to extend his unbeaten record with a third-round stoppage of Jack Summers in Birmingham tonight.
The 24-year-old super bantamweight started brightly against his opponent from West Bromwich and had him on the back foot from the first bell on the undercard of Amir Khan’s clash with Samuel Vargas at Arena Birmingham.
Two convincing rounds with some good left-right hand combinations and some wicked left jabs hurt Summers and it seemed only a matter of time before Aslam made it 13 wins from 13 professional fights.
And after flooring his opponent early in the third with a fine shot, he went back in to finish the job, referee Kevin Parker stopping proceedings two minutes and nine seconds into the third round, much to the delight of the Halliwell boxer and his trainer Alex Matvienko.
Watched by manager Joe Gallagher and promoter Eddie Hearn, Aslam again impressed with Gallagher labelling him ‘a mini-Amir Khan’ after the victory.
