Jack Bateson ensured it was a successful return to the ring after he extended his unbeaten record with an impressive performance on Sunday.

Leeds hero Bateson (12-0, 3 KOs) was in action at Hangar 34 in Liverpool, taking on previously undefeated Matt Craddock (2-1).

It was a brilliant showing from Bateson throughout the fight, dominating the action across all six rounds on his way to a 60-54 points verdict on the referee’s scorecard.

The win over Craddock means that Bateson adds a stellar win to his record, following wins over the likes of Khvicha Gigolashvaili, Bayardo Ramos and Pablo Narvaez.

It was Bateson’s first fight since September 2019, and the 26-year-old is now keen to kick on and go from strength to strength in his career in the near future.
