Lewis Ritson won the British lightweight title outright in sensational style.

The 24-year-old took just eight months to win the crown he snatched away from Robbie Barrett last year.

‘The Sandman’ secured defences against Joe Murray and Scott Cardle, in a combined three rounds earlier this year – in February and March – and he looked superb at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle against his mandatory challenger Paul Hyland Jr.

The Belfast challenger came out and fought fire with fire in the early stages of the opener, but that proved to be his downfall as he was dropped three times.

Gavin McDonnell ensured his upward curve continued after securing a clear win.

McDonnell produced a career-best performance last time out against Gamal Yafai.

The Coatbridge man, a former three-weight global ruler, was in action for the first time since last October’s defeat to Anthony Crolla.

Burns, now 35, got the ring rust off with a win over Ivan Njegac by retirement after the Croatian was pulled out by his corner at the start of round number five.
