Jamie Speight was defeated by Ben Jones on Saturday evening.

BEN Jones overcame the shock of March’s 90-second blowout defeat to Stephen Smith by stopping Jamie Speight to claim the IBO international lightweight title on Saturday evening.

Crawley-based Jones finished southern area super featherweight champion Speight in the sixth round to improve his record to 13-3-1.

Speight, who received a hip injury in the fourth round, now drops to 11-3 following the loss at Hove’s Town Hall.

A European title shot in the super-featherweight division is now on Jones’ wish-list, while Speight is set to relocate from his existing Devon base and move to the north-west to work in association with Vaughan Boxing.
