Ovill became a double champion at the Metro Arena in Newcastle in the north of England on Saturday night when he knocked out John-Lewis Dickinson to add the British title to his Commonwealth cruiserweight crown.
McKenzie took the fight to Dickinson in the opening round as Dickinson threw very little leather. McKenzie let a few jabs go in the second round before unleashing left hook to the head followed by a right hand to send Dickinson to the canvas.
Dickinson managed to get to his feet at the count of seven but referee Victor Louglin had seen enough and stopped the fight towards the end of the round.
Speaking after the fight McKenzie said: “I need to go anywhere in the world, and come back with a world title for Britain. I want to show my appreciation to Britain for letting me in this country and helping me to fulfil my career, and my dreams.”
