On the same show as the World Boxing Federation world title fights featuring Francois Botha vs Pedro Carrion and Kreshnik Qato vs. Fabio Liggieri, WBF International light heavyweight champion Tamas Kovacs from Slovakia remained undefeated and defended his belt with a third round technical knockout over Hungarian challenger Gyula Gaspar.

Now 14-0 (10), Kovacs dominated from the first bell and ended matters after one minute of the third round, knocking down Gaspar and prompting referee Ian John-Lewis to stop the uneven affair.       

Kovacs is now booked to vie for the vacant WBF world light heavyweight crown on December 18 in his hometown of Galanta, Slovakia. If victorious, he would make history as his countries first-ever professional boxing world champion.
