HAVING claimed the IBF world bantamweight title back in December 2013 courtesy of a unanimous decision success over Vusi Malinga, Darlington’s Stuey Hall, 20-5-2 (7) had reached the pinnacle of his career.

Although he became only the second world champion from the north-east of England, the first being Glenn McCrory some 25 years prior to Hall’s success, one thing irked the now 37-year-old fighter, and has been increased since, losses to Bristol’s Lee Haskins, now 34-4 (14).

The former world champion is certainly looking to get back into the mix sooner rather than later and have another, some might say deserved, run at world glory.
