Natasha Jonas stunningly floors and stops Christian Namus to complete world title dream | Boxing News

Natasha Jonas became a world champion at the third time of asking by sensationally stopping Christian Namus in two rounds on Saturday in Manchester.

Jonas won the vacant WBO super-welterweight title after heavily knocking down Namus in each of the first two rounds.

Jonas first sent Namus crashing to the floor with a swift right hook, and although the Uruguayan rose to her feet she was visibly unsteady.

Jonas swarmed and Namus was possibly saved by the bell for the end of the round, still on unstable legs.

But the Liverpool veteran was just as powerful in the second round, completing a flurry with a left hook to send Namus down again.
