Babic returns with TKO win

Now fighting at heavyweight, all-action Alen ‘The Savage’ Babic (12-1, 11 KOs) scored a brutal sixth round TKO over Steve Robinson (6-3, 4 KOs) in a fan-friendly fire fight on Easter Sunday at the O2 Arena in London. A fusillade of Babic punches prompted a stoppage by referee Sean McAvoy at :54. It was Babic’s first fight since a bridgerweight title defeat against Lukasz Rozanski 12 months ago.
