Little Lever's Jack Cullen put in arguably the most emphatic display of his career on Saturday night to win the British super middleweight title at Manchester's AO Arena.

Boltonian Cullen stopped former stablemate Mark Heffron in round three with a superb left hook that sent his opponent to the canvas - and he fell again after the eight count prompting referee Kieran McCann to stop the contest.

The win sees Little Lever's Meat Cleaver realise his dream of becoming British champion at a packed arena with lots of support making the short trip from his home town.

Speaking after his win, Cullen told The Bolton News: "The game plan worked perfectly and I am buzzing with that win."
