Enzo Maccarinelli: Stopped in the second round

Former WBO cruiserweight champion Maccarinelli, now campaigning in the division below, was looking to get his career back on track after serving a six-month ban for failing a random drugs test.

McKenzie's victory was the second defence of the crown he won in November last year by stopping Jeff Evans.
