Brampton boxer Josh Wale finally won the British title after he put in a disciplined performance on Saturday night.

Wale, 29, was challenging for his dream title for the third time after previously drawing and losing for the super-bantamweight belt.

Dundee's Jamie Wilson gave him a stern test for the vacant bantamweight title at the Doncaster Dome but Wale did enough to win the fight unanimously with judges Michael Alexander (116-112), Howard Foster (115-114) and John Latham (115-114) all opting for him following 12 rounds.

Wale boxed patiently throughout the contest and made Wilson miss repeatedly whilst catching him rushing in with classier blows.

The Scot battled bravely until the final bell but the title deservedly went back to Brampton.

Barnsley now has two current reigning British champions with Darfield's Robbie Barrett, the lightweight belt holder, set to defend his title in September.
