Haskins Defeats Mexican To Keep Himself In World Title Contention

Bristol's Lee Haskins comfortably dispatched Mexican Willy Velazquez last night at the City Academy to keep his World title dream alive.

The 31-year old outclassed his younger opponent from the opening bell, in the main event on Jamie Sanigar's promotion, showing good speed and strength to keep the Mexican on the back foot throughout.

Velazquez did well to last the full ten rounds, but never troubled the Bristolian southpaw, Haskins winning the bout 100-91 on the scorecard.

Haskins is ranked fifth in the World by the WBC and has been made to wait for a shot at a Bantamweight World Title despite his impressive career record of 30 wins and just 3 defeats.

Next up for the 'Playboy' is a trip to Monaco to take on Frenchman Omar Amiri on February 21 for the vacant European title.
