Heckington boxer Amir Unsworth’s bid to win the British Masters Bronze Welterweight title ended in defeat on Saturday.

Up against Steven Pearce, of Stourbridge, in the eight three-minute round title bout at Walsall Town Hall, Unsworth lost on a technical knock-out.

The fight was stopped in round six due to a cut above his left eye.

Unsworth had won his comeback fight against Arvydas Trizno on March 7 this year.
