Sonny Upton [12(5)-3(1)] was denied in Manchester on Friday night, being edged out in his short-notice English light middleweight title challenge.
Upton took on home favourite Matty Ryan [13(2)-1(0)] at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre, and fell to a majority decision (93:97, 95:96, 96:96) defeat.
A real clash of styles, Ryan came forward for the entirety of the bout, while Upton looked to counter-punch.
Upton and his team took issue with the decision, feeling that he was the better boxer on the night and that Ryan was awarded for ineffective aggression.
BritishBoxers.co.uk were there on Friday to film the fight and have released full footage with commentary:
