ROBBIE BARRETT captured the British Lightweight title from Scott Cardle with a majority points victory at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

Previously unbeaten Cardle was looking for the win to secure the Lonsdale Belt outright and it looked like he was on his way when the Yorkshireman took two counts of eight.

However, a cut opened up at the side of Cardle’s eye in the fifth round which appeared to turn the fight in Barrett’s favour.
