Billy Bird maintained his perfect professional boxing record with a points victory over Bulgaria’s Borislav Zankov at Milton Keynes’ WonderWorld Xscape night club.

The 21-year-old former Sudbury Boxing Club member endured a difficult run up to his sixth professional bout with the late withdrawls of two opponents.

‘Billy Boy’ saw both Steven Spence and veteran Kieron Gray pull out in the week prior to the fight, but remained unfazed to overcome Zankov.

The victory keeps Bird on track to get a shot at the middleweight British Masters title later this year.
