PAUL BUTLER took a firm step towards a world title fight when he outpointed old rival Stuey Hall in a 12 round bantamweight contest at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday (September 30).

As Hall marauded forward, Butler counter-punched with slick skills. He clipped Hall with his left hook and led with a textbook backhand right. Stuey plunged forward, hammering his right through.

Butler turned southpaw and still boxed well, bringing Hall on to a left uppercut. He continued to pop his left through, working busily as Hall attacked. In the ninth round he looked to hurt Stuey, ripping his left hook into the body and then striking the head.
