Ahead of the main bout of the evening at the Braehead Arena, in Glasgow, we were treated to a super-lightweight title fight.

Up for grabs was the vacant IBO intercontinental super-lightweight title.

Matched for the fight were the Edinburgh fighter Jason Easton and Steve Jamoye who hails from Liege, in Belgium.

Easton entered the fight with an unbeaten professional record of nine wins and was the favourite to claim the title.

Although Jamoye had the opportunity to increase his profile in the game, he arrived with a negative attitude and was merely intent on survival.

It made for a somewhat frustrating fight with Jamoye taking every opportunity to hold onto his opponent.

The plan clearly frustrated the referee who took a point off of Jamoye for holding and it looked as if the man from Liege could be disqualified if he didn?t change his tactics.

Thankfully, the fight came to an end in the ninth round when Easton forced a stoppage to secure the IBO intercontinental super-lightweight title and make it 10-0 in his professional career.

But what a frustrating fight!
