DAN Garber has bounced back from his first professional defeat earlier this year, producing a clinical display to beat previously-unbeaten Nishant Sharma at the weekend.

The Bradford heavyweight told the T&A ahead of the fight that he would probably retire if he lost the bout, but instead he will now be hoping for a top TV date going forward.

Sharma was four from four in his professional career, having been a national champion in India as an amateur.

But Saturday’s bout at The Bradford Hotel was over inside two minutes.

Southpaw Garber caught him with a vicious left hand early on in the first round, and from there, the Indian was all over the place.

He soon took a right hand to the body from the home fighter, sending him down, with the stoppage coming just a minute and 40 seconds into the bout.

Garber moves to 5-1 in his professional career, and will be hoping to make plenty of money from his next fight.

Another Bradfordian, Fezan Shahid, was on the same card, and the flyweight moved to 2-1-2 in his professional career with a points win over Nabil Ahmed, who falls to 1-19-2.
