Chatteris boxer Jordan Gill has scored the biggest win of his career to date by lifting the Commonwealth featherweight title in London tonight.

Gill stopped Ryan Doyle midway through the seventh round to claim the belt at the Copper Box Arena after a highly impressive display.

The Fenland fighter was roared on by a noisy following as he wobbled the champion in the fourth round before sending him to the canvas late in the sixth with a sharp left hand.

Doyle, who was making the first defence of the title, was unable to withstand further pressure in the seventh.

And referee Victor Loughlin called a halt after one minute 32 seconds of the session to launch the celebrations.

Gill told Sky Sports he was interested in taking on the winner of the forthcoming bout for the British title held by Cromer's Ryan Walsh.

His father Paul said: "When I told people 20 years ago he could become a champion, people laughed at me."

Trainer Dave Coldwell added: "He's had his opportunity. That's what he's been craving. He does everything you ask him to do. I'm very proud of him."
