Josh Warrington eases to a points win over Martin Lindsay to defend his Commonwealth belt while picking up the British crown in the process.

Josh Warrington has defended his Commonwealth featherweight strap with a points victory over Martin Lindsay, which also sees him pick up the British title.

The Leeds fighter was expected to be tested by the experienced Lindsay, but he was never in trouble against the Northern Irishman.

The 23-year-old took the opening four rounds, and although Lindsay won the fifth, Warrington outclassed his opponent during the second part of the contest to pick up the win.

The judges all scored the fight 119-110 in favour of Warrington, who extends his professional record to 18 successive victories.
