Russias Artur Beterbiev unified the light heavyweight division using a 10th-round stoppage of Oleksandr Gvozdyk.
The 34-year-old knocked on his Ukrainian opponent down three times before the competition ceased .
Beterbiev captured Gvozdyks World Boxing Council belt and also defended his International Boxing Federation crown.
It was the very first world title bout since boxer Patrick Day.
Super welterweight Day, who suffered a brain injury after being pumped out by Charles Conwell in Chicago last weekend, was honoured before the major event.
Beterbiev, who rents in Montreal, Canada, today has 15 wins from 15 professional fights after beating his formerly unbeaten rival at the Liacouras Center.
His next battle is going to be a compulsory defence against another fighter, Chinas Meng Fanlong.
Promoter Bob Arum wants to maintain that struggle early next season in China around this Chinese New Years time.
