WBC International Lightweight Silver champion Sam Noakes (UK) stopped in round four previously undefeated Lewis Sylvester (UK) to retain his title last February 10th at the Copper Box Arena in London (UK). Sam (13-0, 13 KO’s) maintained his 100% stoppage ratio with this win. The show in London was promoted by Queensberry. After an even opening round, the champion started dominating in the second session when he geared up to look for another inside-the-distance win, a consecutive 13th stoppage. In round three some body shots from the champion dropped Sylvester twice. The moment came in round four when the challenger was again sent to his knee forcing the cornerman to throw in the towel and avoid his boxer further punishment.
