Sheffield boxers got Saturday night's Kell Brook show off to a winning start.

Welterweight Anthony Tomlinson, who has been sparring with Brook before tonight's main event against Aussie Michael Zerafa, stopped Innocent Anyanwu, from Holland, in round five.

He'd pummelled him into the corner until the referee stepped in.

Eckington's Callum Hancock outpointed Bulgarian light heavyweight Ivan Nikolov over four rounds.

Wincobank's Shakiel Thompson again showed his promise, this time by stopping Konstantin Alexandrov in round three.

Denaby's Terri Harper beat Feriche Mashauri.
