Tim Tszyu has kept his perfect, unblemished record in tact with an impressive TKO victory over Stevie Spark.
The undefeated Aussie took just three rounds to finish his opponent, ending the bout with a devastating body shot which dropped Spark.
Having taken the fight on just one week's notice, Spark looked visibly drained early on and Tszyu made him pay with a perfectly-timed hook which caught him right on the rib cage.
The vicious punch decked Spark and the referee wasted no time in waving off the fight.
With 15 knockouts from his 19 wins, 26-year-old Tszyu has now arguably concurred Down Under and has a few boxers from across the pond squarely in his sights.
Tszyu has made no secret of the fact that he's angling for a scrap with undisputed champ Jermell Charlo, although it seems he has now turned his attention to three other title-holders in the meantime.
"There's Liam Smith, (Magomed) Kurbanov and Danny Garcia. They are the three boys I'm going for," he said during his post-fight interview.
"So if you're watching boys, I'm coming for you."
This drew a response from the cheering Newcastle crowd who clearly supported Tszyu's call-out.
Even Spark himself, who showed incredible amounts of courage to accept a bout of this calibre on such notice, couldn't help but sing Tszyu's praises too.
"Like many have said before, the hype is real," Spark said.
"Tim's a quality opponent, and [I] can't thank him enough for the opportunity."
It seems only a matter of time until we see Tszyu follow in the footsteps of his legendary father Kostya and fight under the bright lights of Las Vegas, taking on the best boxers on the planet for the biggest titles on offer.
And judging by his performance tonight, he certainly looks ready.
