Light heavyweight contender Joe Smith defeated favorite Andrzej Fonfara by first-round TKO in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions tripleheader Saturday night at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.

Fonfara (28-4, 16 KOs) seemed to have Smith in trouble in the middle of the first round, but Smith connected on an overhead right hand that sent Fonfara to the canvas. He was able to beat the count, but Smith (22-1, 18 KOs) went for the finish and sent Fonfara down once again with a flurry of punches. Fonfara tried to get up but wasn’t in great shape, forcing the referee to stop the fight at 2:32.
