Rotherham • July 19

THE IBO world title might not be held in the highest of esteems among much of the boxing world, but Terri Harper claimed it in some style and can now press on to even bigger challenges.

Harper took out South African Nozipho Bell with one minute 25 seconds gone in the eighth round to lift the title.

The Denaby super-featherweight had already decked Bell earlier in the session with a strong square right hand which toppled the visitor in a delayed reaction.
