George Rhodes cruised to a comfortable points victory over Ali Wyatt at the Barnsley Metrodome on Saturday evening.

The Scarborough welterweight won all four rounds to claim a 40-36 success in his fourth professional outing, maintaining his 100 per cent record in the paid ranks.

“I thought that I performed very well on the night, this was my best performance to date,” Rhodes reflected.

“I kept it simple and didn’t do anything flamboyant but I felt in control the whole way through the fight and dictated the pace. It was easy really.

“I caught Wyatt coming forward a few times and landed well to the body. He had plenty of marks on him by the end.

“He told me after the fight that I nearly had him out in the second with a couple of body shots, so overall I’m very pleased with how it went.”
