Limond (10st) dropped Prince (9st 12lbs 14ozs) with a right hook in a fast paced opener, and Limond also won the next round - also landing the cleaner shots.

However, in the third Prince came back into it, as both stood toe-to-toe in centre of the ring.

Rpince wobbled again mid-round in the fourth and the same happened in the fifth with has his gum shield knocked out as the bell sounded.

Limond showed some lovely boxing in sixth as he nipped in and out landing nice combinations.

However, Prince never stops coming forward and at start of eighth the fight changed as Prince started to connect more as it seemed Willie began to feel the pace.

This continued as Prince chased down Limond - doing enough to win the rounds.

In the last Limond landed some well-timed counter punches and they fell into each other as the bell sounds.

Winning the last just won it for Willie.

The judges Victor Laughlin and Terry O’Connor score it 115/113 and Dave Parris 116/112.
