Matty had Stryowski down twice before the referee waved it off on the bell, reaping high praise from the commentators.

After the fight, Fury took time to chat with Matty, impressed with what his saw.

Matty will be back out again on Channel 5 on July 30, looking to extend his unbeaten record with another knockout display.

Danny Quartermaine, who boxes on July 2 will be boxing at super featherweight over six rounds and looks to keep busy over the next few mouths and will be looking to a title before the end of the year.
