BRADFORD boxer Hamed Ghaz made it 16 fights unbeaten with a points victory over Naheem Choudhry.

The professional lightweight impressed once again as he proved too good for his Blackburn opponent in the six-round contest at Elland Road.

Ghaz said: "Naheem came to win, but my speed and agility was too much for him to land a shot. I remained calm and was very selective with my shots and ensured my technique was sharp.

"It allowed me to get one step closer to my title shot and I can't wait to see what the future holds for my career. I strongly believe I have the willpower, strength, determination and physical ability to become a world-renowned boxer in the upcoming future."

The 23-year-old, who is sponsored by Ashfaq Hussain from eastZeast Liverpool, has yet to taste defeat since entering the professional ranks in November 2014.

The Undercliffe ace enjoyed success as a young amateur before then, being crowned Yorkshire champion three times.

Meanwhile, former Bradford College student Jack Bateson, from Guiseley, warmed up for his forthcoming English title fight with a victory against Georgian Khvicha Gigolashvili on the same Elland Road bill.

Bateson, who is due to fight Michael Ramabeletsa for the English Super Bantam belt next month, secured his 11th professional win on points.
