Ramla Ali hardly broke a sweat as she maintained her undefeated record.

The British-Somalian super bantamweight dropped Shelly Barnett twice in their eight-round bout en route to a second round stoppage at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles.

Not even a minute into the opening round, Ali, Ali, a 2020 Olympian for Somalia, dropped Barnett with a furious combination punctuated with a right hand. Ali followed with another stiff right hand that seemed to buzz Barnett.

In the second round, Ali continued to land clean on Barnett, working the body and connecting on hard one-twos. Barnett was clearly out of her depth against Ali’s superior technique.

A final flurry from Ali compelled the referee to stop the bout. The official time of stoppage was 1:23 of round 2.

Ali, 32, improves to 5-0 with 1 knockout. This was her first fight under trainer Manny Robles.

The 38-year-old Barnett drops to 5-7-2. This was the first time she failed to go the distance.
