IT WAS a busy weekend for Bradford's boxers, with Amin Jahanzeb topping the bill.

And he, like fellow Bradford District boxers Hamed Ghaz and Ibrahim Nadim earlier in the month, managed a Saturday night win in Oldham.

Jahanzeb beat Romania's Stefan Nicolae to improve his professional record to 11-1, recording just the third knockout of his career.

His previous two, against Ricky Starkey and Moises Mojica, were both technical knockouts, whereas this was just a knockout.

Nicolae had already been knocked down in round four of the six scheduled, and when he was floored by Jahanzeb in the fifth it was all over.

Jahanzeb followed in the footsteps of Keighley's Nadim, who had already beaten Nicolae twice in his career.

Now Bradfordian Jahanzeb has won this bout, he is free to fight for the vacant English Featherweight title against the unbeaten Andre Grant in September.

Bradford heavyweight Peter Naylor was on the same card as Jahanzeb, and making his professional debut, he managed to beat Jack Darnell on points over four rounds.

Darnell's professional record stands at 1-7 now, and he never looked like overly troubling Naylor, with the fight scored 40-36 in the Bradfordian's favour by referee Jamie Kirkpatrick.

But Nathan Joseph suffered a surprise defeat in Sheffield.

The Bradford bareknuckle boxer was fighting to become BFBA (Bare Fist Boxing Association) European Heavyweight champion, but lost to the "French Viking" Valentin Vauthiers.
