Cape Town - Boxer Sam Maxwell claimed the WBO European super lightweight title in dramatic fashion by knocking out opponent, Sabri Sediri in the final stages of the last round at the Leicester Arena on Friday.

Frenchman Sediri had clearly dominated the fight after dropping Maxwell twice in the early stages of the fight and looked headed to an easy points decision.

After being dropped again in the final round, a clearly staggered Maxwell was taunted by the increasingly confident Sediri who dropped his hands and started showboating.

Life, as they say, came at him quick though with Maxwell delivering a devastating right to win the fight with just 10 seconds left.
