World Champion Lee Haskins Drops Into Ashton Gate

Bristol’s boxing world champion Lee Haskins dropped into Ashton Gate on Saturday to parade his IBF bantamweight belt ahead of City’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Derby County.

Haskins, who successfully defended his title with a unanimous decision over foe Stuart Hall at London’s O2 Arena on September 11th, visited the Directors Box where he met majority shareholder, Steve Lansdown, chief operating officer Mark Ashton and fellow ‘Lockleaze boy’ and City director, Ernie Arathoon.

The Southpaw fighter was presented to the Ashton Gate faithful at half-time and said: “It is great to be able to come to Ashton Gate and share my world title with the fans. It’s amazing to come back and see the fully finished stadium.”

Haskins’ record now reads 34-3-KO14 and he retains the belt Hall used to hold after the judges scored the fight 115-113, 117-111, 116-112.
