Hatfield heavyweight Tom Little claimed redemption in some style with the first round technical knock-out of Tom Dallas at York Hall on Saturday night.

Ahead of the clash on the DoveBox Promotions show, Little made clear he was looking to right the wrongs of his loss to Dallas in 2012 during Prizefighter.

Little, who was accompanied on his ringwalk by Hatfield’s WBO world champion Billy Joe Saunders, made light work of Dallas.

The 29-year-old caught Dallas and trapped him in a corner, and with nowhere to escape Little landed blow after blow with the referee calling an abrupt end to proceedings.

Little, who now has an eight win and four defeat pro record, celebrated wildly by leaping on to the ropes and pumping his fists before being embraced by his coaching team.

Following the fight Little said he wanted to next fight DL Jones before having a second crack at the Southern Area title.
