And while Jarvis was the favourite, that '0' in his record looked to be in serious peril as Frias unloaded an absolute storm of punches against the Aussie who was hanging in there.

"Jarvis up against the ropes...this is a disaster for the Australian," DAZN commentator Todd Grisham said.

“He’s got to get out of there. What an upset this would be. Jarvis has never been in this kind of trouble before.

"This is incredible. They didn’t even list odds for this fight in Las Vegas.”

However, remarkably, Jarvis was able to throw a few punches back amid the onslaught and survived the round.

And showing true grit he went on to stop Frias in the 5th after a TKO decision.
