PAUL "The Bundy Bear" Kovacs has finalised his campaign in the UK with a technical knockout win over an older fighter Monday night.

Kovacs stopped Naylor Ball in the first round with some crushing blows and he leaves England unbeaten from his three fights.

In an email Kovacs sent after the fight from the St. George's Hotel in Chatham, Kent, Kovacs said he had a fantastic time travelling with the Queensland Boxing Team.

"I won both my fights in England and there was one exhibition - which means I was undefeated in the UK," Kovacs said.

"It was a great experience and I learned so much."
