Josh Wale has his eyes on becoming Barnsley's first ever Commonwealth champion after he made light work of his latest opponent.

After stopping Latvian Dmitrijs Gutmans at the Doncaster Dome with a destructive one round display on Saturday night, the 28-year-old revealed a fight with Sheffield's unbeaten Muheeb Fazeldin for the vacant Commonwealth super-bantamweight strap is one that interests him in the future.

Fazeldin has twice been due to fight for the Commonwealth belt but has suffered late withdrawals. Wale says he would definitely show up.

Wale, from Brampton, told the Chronicle: "Wherever, whenever, I want that fight. Everybody knows where I stand, I just need a date and a place and I'll see him there.

"All I've ever worked to be is the British or Commonwealth champion. That's what I would have said at eight-year-old and it's still the same at 28.

"I feel like I'm looking the best that I've ever looked. Stefy (Bull) has come in and been a massive help."

A fight with Fazeldin would be a second shot at a Commonwealth belt with Wale losing to Stuart Hall for the bantamweight crown back in 2012.

Darfield southpaw Robbie Barrett claimed his first stoppage as a professional on the same show.

Barrett, 24, stopped Newark's Adam Kettleborough in six rounds and feels like he is powering up the lightweight rankings domestically.

Earlier on in the fight I hurt him to the body but I didn’t want to step on him too early as there was a long time left to go,” said Barrett.

“In the first four rounds the plan was to bamboozle him and use my legs and box.

"When I had three or four rounds in the bag it was time to mix things up a bit and plant my feet. I’m glad it worked.”

Mapplewell's Lee Gibbons, 27, could not claim the light-welterweight Challenge Belt. He was stopped in two rounds in Weston-super-Mare.
