  1. Thanks and goodbye

    So that concludes a very hectic night of British boxing.

    We had Nicola Adams stopping Maryan Salazar in the third round of Adams' Leeds homecoming and then wins for Kal Yafai and Josh Warrington.

    Yafai's points victory means he retains his WBA Super-Flyweight World Championship, while Warrington moves closer to a world title shot of his own in the featherweight category.

    It has been frantic, but it has been fun. Thanks for joining us and bye for now.

  2. A world title fight in six months?

    Josh Warrington beats Kiko Martinez with a majority decision

    Josh Warrington's promoter Frank Warren tells BT Sport: "I am astonished John Keane gave it a draw.

    "Josh needed those rounds under his belt and we have got to look to get him a world title fight. We should look to do that in the next six months and I am going to work hard to deliver that."

  3. 'I think I am ready for a world title fight'

    Some quotes from Josh Warrington, who has won in his first fight in 10 months. He tells BT Sport: "I felt all right, I felt good. It probably looked I was going through the motions. At times I felt I had him wobbled I never felt tired, at times I just switched off and it was good to get the rounds under my belt.

    "I can't thank these fans enough, I owe them so much and that is why I want to get a world title. I always felt in control.

    "I think I am ready to go (for a world title). I wanted to stand and trade a bit and I did, but he never troubled me and we go on.

    "I kept him busy with my jab, I could have teed him up a bit better, I was trying a few things in there and it feels great to be back."

    So Josh Warrington can go on to bigger and better things, but it was a tough, tough test that he has just about got through it.

  5. BreakingWarrington wins by majority decision

    It is tense around the First Direct Arena as the first judge calls it a 114-114 draw, but Josh Warrington's unbeaten run is intact, and he still has the WBC International Featherweight Championship as two judges give it to him by 116-112, 116-112 margins.

    He wins by a majority decision.

    Round 12: Josh Warrington v Kiko Martinez

    The final round...

    Martinez keeps coming at Warrington and lands a powerful right to the body, followed by the head.

    The Leeds man is stunned for a second and his Spanish opponent comes back at him but unable to finish the job.

    Warrington takes a step back to try and regain his composure but he fails to land anything of note in the 12th.

    The crowd comes to life with 30 seconds to go, but it is another solid Martinez body blow which sneaks through.

    All over and the two greet each other with a big hug.

    Round 11: Josh Warrington v Kiko Martinez

    The duo go toe-to-toe at the beginning of the 11th as blood drips down Martinez's eye after the cut he suffered by an accidental clash of heads.

    They are really going for it now as Martinez swings a left hook with Warrington looking tired and weary with little left in the tank.

    He may need to take the last round to ensure victory here.

  9. 'Chase the unification bouts'

    Kal Yafai beats Suguru Muranaka to retain his WBA Super-Flyweight World Championship

    Some quotes from Kal Yafai's promoter Eddie Hearn. He tells Sky Sports: "I thought it was a great performance, one more defence then he can chase the unification bouts."

    Round 10: Josh Warrington v Kiko Martinez

    Nicola Adams, looking fresh after her fight, sits ringside to cheer on her fellow Leeds boxer.

    The short and stocky Martinez again lands with a blow to the body, but Warrington moves quickly on his feet to respond with punches of his own.

    The referee chats to both men for a couple of hits below the belt, but they touch gloves and return to their stools at the end of the round.

  11. 'My hands are in agony'

    Kal Yafai beats Suguru Muranaka to retain his WBA Super-Flyweight Championship

    Some quotes from Great Britain's Kal Yafai, who has defended his WBA Super-Flyweight Championship with a convincing points win over Japan's tough Suguru Muranaka.

    Yafai tells Sky Sports: "I had to box my way through, that kid, boy, his head has everything.

    "My hand was in a bad way after two rounds, but I got through it. My hands are in agony.

    "There is a lot to work on, I'm still a work in progress. I need to work on taking my time but I will watch it back and there will be some positives to take.

    "He has a tough head. At the end, he said 'you are strong' but he took everything I had."

  12. BreakingYafai retains his WBA Super-Flyweight Championship

    It is a unanimous points win for Great Britain's Kal Yafai, and it is a big win.

    The judges give it to Yafai by 118-108, 119-107 and 119-107 margins

    Round nine: Josh Warrington v Kiko Martinez

    Is that cut going to force Martinez to go to all-out attacking mode?

    It a deep one and the Spaniard has to set the tempo.

    But it leaves him exposed and Warrington gets through the defences with a superb right flush on the nose which rocks back Martinez's head.

    The Lee Carsley lookalike's face is a mess now.

  14. We go to the judges' scorecards

    Kal Yafai v Suguru Muranaka (WBA Super-Flyweight Championship)

    He has taken some punishment, but Japan's Suguru Muranaka gets to hear the final bell. Which way will this one go?

  15. 'Earned his wage'

    Round 12: Kal Yafai v Suguru Muranaka

    Luke Campbell, the Olympic Games bantamweight gold medallist in 2012, has his say...

    Round eight: Josh Warrington v Kiko Martinez

    Warrington needs to be careful.

    He goes on the attack but a big missed right allows Martinez to catch his man with a clean left hook.

    But Martinez is cut with claret seeping down his right cheek following what looked like a clash of heads.

    "Make him look silly now," says trainer Sean O'Hagan in the corner.

    Four more rounds to come.

    Round 11: Kal Yafai v Suguru Muranaka

    Can Suguru Muranaka get to hear the final bell? He deserves to. This is the first time he has fought outside of Japan, but he will have gained a lot of friends and admirers for his tenacity, bravery and sheer doggedness.

    Still, this is Kal Yafai's fight to lose. One round to go.

    Round seven: Josh Warrington v Kiko Martinez

    Body shots is the way to go for Martinez, catching Warrington in the ribcage.

    But the Leeds fighter holds himself together to club the Spaniard one, two, three times to the right of the head.

    Both boxers have taken some shots, but seem to be soaking them up well.

    Round 10: Kal Yafai v Suguru Muranaka

    This has been a lot tougher for the Birmingham man than many in the Barclaycard Arena in Yafai's home city thought it would be.

    The Japanese fighter is getting the plaudits for being so tough, but Yafai is keeping hold of his title - unless something special happens in the last nine minutes.

    Unless something special happens. I remember writing something similar at this stage of Anthony Joshua versus Wladimir Klitschko with the Ukrainian on top and we all know what happened there.

    Round 6: Josh Warrington v Kiko Martinez

    Josh Warrington

    "Marching on together," sing the Leeds crowd.

    Their man dances around the ring to try and evade the right hand hammer of Martinez.

    The Spaniard is comfortable in taking the shots from Warrington, before striking back by working the body of the Englishman.

    Warrington then unleashes some heavy artillery late in the round, which Martinez feels for the first time.

    "You are giving him a masterclass in boxing," says father and trainer Sean O' Hagan in the corner.
