The 28 year-old from the Czech Republic had a reputation for being durable, but Barron hit too hard for him.

Barron, who was having his first contest for nearly three years, floored Obeslo three times and the referee waved the fight off after the third knockdown, which was from a body shot in the dying seconds of the fight.
