DEADLY Redditch middleweight Andrew Robinson is firmly targeting British title glory after dispatching Eric Nwankwo at Walsall Town Hall.

The 34-year-old, mandatory for the Lord Lonsdale strap, warmed-up for Welshman Liam Williams with victory on the BCB promotions ‘Britain Awaits’ show on Saturday night.

D’Animal was quick out the blocks as he snapped in the jab and a left hook found its target early on.

However, Nigerian Nwankwo had joy with lefts of his own and landed with solid counter punches as he made Robinson miss in a lively opening round.

The second remained quite an even affair as both men exchanged punches but it was Robinson that found the knock-out blow with his man backed on to the ropes.

He ended matters late in the second when he landed a big left to send Nwankwo sprawling to the canvas.

After the win, Robinson said: “It’s all about the British title now. That’s the dream that I’ve worked so hard for. I can’t wait for it now.

“That upset win in Poland set up the British title but I was more nervous about this one because if I lost then it could all be over.

“He was tricky but I got the job done in devastating fashion.

“I’m better than I’ve ever been and am hitting harder than I ever have. It’s time to bring the title back to Redditch.”

Halesowen's Lennox Clarke warmed up for his own British title fight with a 46-40 points win over Darryl Sharp.

The former white collar boxer, 28, now has Lerrone Richards in his sights after continuing his preparations with important rounds against the durable Sharp.

Super-middleweight Clarke had joy with shots to the body in a busy first round and put good combinations together when managing to trap his opponent in the corner.

Clarke continued on the front foot in the second and upped the rate further as he worked both the head and body.

The third round again saw Clarke walking down Sharp and landing good shots around his opponent’s guard. Sharp continued to fire back but it was Clark that maintained the higher intensity.

His best work came in the fourth and final round when he landed neat hooks to the head of Sharp as the contest went to the scorecards.

Topping the bill, super bantamweight Liam Davies overwhelmed Jose Aguilar before forcing a fourth-round stoppage with a sickening body shot to end the night of action in style.

Meanwhile, Dudley’s Ruben Campbell was made to work for his victory over Ibrar Riyaz.

Campbell picked up a 39-38 success as his jab proved the difference against the slick work of Riyaz.

There were also wins on the night for debutants Kashif Khan and Owen Cooper.
