The Welshman was put down in the first and third round but showed admirable resilience to not only take the fight the distance but win it.

The former WBO champion, 31, was given the decision 115-111 116-111 115-110 on the judges' cards as he fulfilled a career ambition by winning his first British title.

Maccarinelli had to do without trainer Enzo Calzaghe, who was not be allowed in his fighter's corner after having his training licence withdrawn by the BBBC.
