That is the impressive start to the new chapter in Seaham fighter Jordan Ellison’s career.

He clinched his second victory in successive Saturdays when he demolished Louis Fielding in Birmingham, stopping the Tamworth prospect in the fourth and final round at Villa Park.

It came seven days after the 20-year-old overwhelmed the previously Chris Conwell in Preston.

Coach Peter Cope said: “I can’t praise Jordan enough – he was sensational again.

“He’s not just gone away and won, he’s taken two prospects apart.”

The first round in the Holte Suite was a tentative affair as both boxers felt each other out. But Ellison began to get through in the second and by the third had an iron-tight grip on the bout.

The Seaham lightweight really went to work in the last session, a left hook having Fielding, who had lost just once, in all sorts of trouble.

Ellison did not let up, ripping a body shot into the 25-year-old before rocking his head back with an upper cut.

With the home boxer struggling, the referee stepped in to halt the bout in the final 10 seconds. “He may have ruined a job or two with those wins,” added Cope.

“I’m not sure how many prospects will risk going in with Jordan. But I’m proper pleased with him. He wants to go on the road and build his experience and he’s done that.

“At Preston, he was in with a muscular, stocky fella and on Saturday some big tall kid.

“Jordan’s got a good boxing brain and he used it and he put in a great performance.

“I thought it could have been stopped earlier, the kid took a lot of stick.”
