At The Holiday Inn, Birmingham Airport, last night, local man - Jordan Clayton, secured his fourth win in the pro ranks by outpointing Marcin Cybulski of Poland over six action-packed rounds.

Also on the Errol Johnson – Black Country Boxing dinner show, there were home wins for Brad Foster and Michael Cole, while Atherton boxer – William Warburton, caused another upset by outpointing debutant Ikram Hussain.
