Booth dominated from the first bell on Friday
Nottingham's Jason Booth defended his British super-bantamweight title with Friday night's classy victory over Michael Hunter in Sunderland.
Booth dominated from the first bell catching Hartlepool boxer Hunter with a fine right in the second.
Hunter was caught with far too much ease in rounds three and four and lacked the accuracy of his opponent.
A body shot rocked the challenger in the fifth and, after consultation with his corner, Hunter stayed on his stool.
Booth now takes his record to 34 victories with five defeats from 39 fights, while Hunter suffered only the second loss of his 32-fight career.
"I was hitting him with some fierce body shots and I could see him wilting," said Booth.
"It was the right decision by his corner. I'm enjoying my boxing so much at the moment and I think it showed."
Meanwhile, Sunderland's Tony Jeffries earned the fourth win of his professional career with a points victory over Artem Solomko in front of his home fans.
Jeffries, a 2008 Olympic bronze medallist, dominated the fight but struggled at times to break down his resilient opponent.
Also on the bill was another Olympic bronze medallist David Price who was fighting for only the second time since turning professional after the 2008 Beijing Games.
Heavyweight Price maintained his unbeaten record with a comfortable points victory over German Liridon Memishi.
