27 year old Anthony Yarde continued his march up the light-heavyweight division’s rankings with another big hitting display on Saturday night.
Yarde scored a TKO that included three knock-downs against opponent Walter Gabriel Sequeira at the Brentwood Centre in the UK.
He improved his professional record to 17-0-16KO with the win.
Here’s the three knock-downs and stoppage as captured by the folks on BT Sport Twitter (hat tip):

He’s going to be a hard man for any light-heavyweight to face with that kind of power but certainly is not the finished article just yet as I would surely admit himself.
Since turning pro in 2015 he’s continued to improve fight to fight and by next year he could be in line for a shot at the WBO title at 175lbs.
Here are some of the opponents fans are calling for him to take on next up:

Same as I wanted after his last fight. Doudou Ngumbu, Enrico Koelling, Felix Valera, Igor Mikhalkin, even Mehdi Amar. Just someone tough and credible

Ideally someone who’s not half his size or weight and a part time milk man

Someone with a pulse

Someone who can punch back will do.
