BRITISH middleweight champion Nick Blackwell repelled a spirited challenge from late replacement Jack Arnfield to defend his title at the City Academy Sports Centre in Bristol on Saturday (November 14).

Arnfield stepped in for Elliot Matthews, who suffered a cut eye in sparring. Jack picked out some excellent shots but the ever busy Blackwell got off to faster than usual start and outscored Arnfield after 12 entertaining rounds.

John Keane scored 117-111, Ian John-Lewis 117-110 and Marcus McDonnell 115-112, all for Blackwell.
