A big right hand towards the end of the round felled Jenman as Manor fighter Cameron made easy work of the first defence of his crown at iceSheffield.

The opening three minutes had seen the 27-year-old feeling his way into the fight and sussing out Brighton’s Jenman, who had failed to make the weight the previous day.

And Cameron stepped up his efforts in the second, ending the night early with a real statement.
