Saunders was fighting for the first time since vacating his WBO crown after testing positive for oxilofrine, a banned substance.
On the same card Tyson Fury’s 19 year-old younger brother. Tommy Fury made a successful pro debut by out-pointing Jevgenijs Andrejevs, 10-103-3-(4), over four rounds.
Young heavyweight prospect Nathan Gorman, 15-0-(11), retained his WBC International Silver heavyweight title out-pointing former world title challenger Razvan Cojanu, 16-5-(9), over 12 one sided rounds.
The Manchester based Gorman was always in control as the 119-109, twice and 120-108 scorecard suggested.
