Yorkshire's Terri Harper has retained her WBC super-featherweight title with a ninth round stoppage victory over Norwegian Katharina thanderz at Wembley Arena.

The 24-year-old from Denaby Main, near Doncaster, came through the toughest fight of her career against Liverpool's Natasha Jonas back in August.

Sheffield's Kell Brook

Meanwhile Sheffield's Kell Brook suffered the third loss of his 39-fight career to Terence Crawford, who retained his WBO world welterweight title in Las Vegas.

Former IBF welterweight champion Brook, 34, was caught by a right hand from the American and had to take a standing eight count in the fourth.

Crawford then landed a flurry of shots before the referee stepped in and stopped the fight.
