JAMIE Cox will head out to Monaco this week for the World Boxing Super Series draft on the back of the fastest win of his professional career.

The unbeaten Swindon southpaw required just 45 seconds of his four-round contest to blast away Croatian Ivan Jukic - 23 seconds faster than Cox needed to dispatch of Ferenc Albert in November 2015.

The reigning WBA Continental super-middleweight champion can also boast to have the quickest win over the 36-year-old.

Current British light-heavyweight champion Frank Buglioni needed 85 seconds to get rid of Jukic, while IBO World champion Chris Eubank Jr took two minutes 32 seconds to get the victory over the former IBF East/West middleweight belt holder.

While this win over Jukic will do little for the career of the former Walcot amateur, it will give him a shot in the arm ahead of the Super Series draw on Saturday.

The 30-year-old is flying out to Monaco on Wednesday as one of the four confirmed super-middleweights in the eight-man tournament, with four more places to be arranged.

George Groves, the reigning WBA Super world champion, unbeaten Swede Erik Skoglund, who is dropping down from the light-heavyweight division, and former WBA/WBO light-heavyweight world champion Juergen Braehmer are joining Cox in the tournament, which has a prize fund of $50 million split between the cruiserweight and the super-middleweight events.

The tournament will see four seeded boxers get to choose who they wish to face from the four remaining unseeded fighters, of which Cox will be one, in their opening fight, which is due to take place by the end of October.

The winners of those bouts will move into the semi-finals in the new year, with the final being stage in May 2018.
