Natasha Jonas took one step closer to a maiden shot at the world title with a 60-54 over Karina Kopinska.

Hosea Burton had to go through some tough moments in his victory over Josip Perkovic, moving a step closer to a shot at regaining his British title.
A left hook from Burton shook Perkovic in the first round, the Croatian doing well to survive the round.
Perkovic grew into the fight in the second, drawing blood from the nose of Burton from straight shots with both hands.
Both men had sustained periods of success during the middle rounds, Burton’s jab giving him rest-bite from the relentless pressure Perkovic brought to the ring.
Hosea Burton edged the fight 78-75 on points in the end, but credit must go to both men for a hard fought contest.
