Boxer Lee Haskins from Bristol successfully defended his world title after beating fellow Brit Stuart Hall at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday night.
It was a second successful defence of his IBF bantamweight title for Haskins - with a hard-fought unanimous decision victory.
It was Haskins' superior mobility and punch variety that secured his latest win, via scores of 115-113, 116-112 and 117-111 on the three judges' scorecards.

Lee Haskins has retained his IBF world bantamweight title with a unanimous points win over Ivan Morales in Cardiff.
The 32 year old from Bristol had almost complete control from the start and his superiority was reflected on the cards of the three judges, who scored it 119-108, 118-110,118-110 in Haskins' favour.
Haskins was making his first title defence after being crowned champion in a rather unsatisfactory fashion last November. Randy Caballero was stripped of the belt after coming in over five pounds above the 118lbs bantamweight limit. Haskins has had to wait since then to prove himself in the ring.
Haskins said: "It's absolutely amazing. I'm flying at the moment."
He now wants an all-British title fight with former IBF champion Stuart Hall, who lost to Haskins in 2012.
