Former Lion amateur Louis Isaacs earned a sixth straight win in the pro ranks with a points victory over super lightweight rival Naheem Chaudhry on Saturday.
The British rivals met on an MTK Global promotion at the Brentwood Centre that was headlined by Danny Dignum's points success over Rafal Jackiewicz.
Isaacs maintained a busy work-rate throughout the four rounds of his contest with Chaudhry.
With his opponent boxing on the back foot to avoid being hit, the 21-year-old former Lion amateur was able to dominate the contest.
