Anthony Fowler took just one round to get his professional career off to a flying start
The Liverpool light-middleweight, who is the cousin of former Reds striker Robbie, floored Geikins twice in the first round before the referee stopped it.
Fowler has only been working with pro trainer Dave Coldwell for four weeks but has always had a style suited to the paid game.
He was sharp at the start as he hunted down the novice looking Latvian with jabs and rights.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist did show his inexperience though when he floored Geikins for the first time.

As the journeyman hit the floor, Fowler hit him with another shot and referee John Latham ushered the stricken fighter up.
Geikins could have stayed down which would have forced the referee to disqualify Fowler on his debut.
But the Liverpool man did not make the same mistake when another combination with nine seconds of the round remaining floored Geikins again and this time the official stopped it.
