Russias Artur Beterbiev unified the light heavyweight division using a 10th-round stoppage of Oleksandr Gvozdyk at Philadelphia.
The 34-year-old knocked on his down opponent three times before referee Gary Rosato ceased the contest with 11 seconds left.
Beterbiev defended his International Boxing Federation crown and captured Gvozdyks World Boxing Council belt.
This was the first world title bout since boxer Patrick Day expired on Wednesday.
American welterweight Day, who suffered a brain injury after being knocked from Charles Conwell in Chicago last weekend, was honoured with a 10-bell salute ahead of the event.
Beterbiev, that rents in Montreal, Canada, now has 15 wins from 15 professional struggles after beating his previously unbeaten rival in the Liacouras Center.
His next fight will be a defence Chinas Meng Fanlong, against another fighter.
Promoter Bob Arum Would like to maintain that fight in China around this New Years time.
