KEIGHLEY'S next boxing star came through as a decisive points winner on his professional debut.

Ibrahim Nadim, beat his overseas opponent 40-36 in a clear four-round victory at the York Hall.

Fighting on Matchroom's JDNXTGEN card in London, the 20-year-old narrowly missed out on the Sky Sports exposure, placed as a float on the night of championship boxing.

The Ricky Hatton-trained fighter showcased his vast array of boxing skills over the distance to cruise past his journeyman opponent, Misael Zeledon. In fact Hatton was in Nadim's corner for the bout.

After the fight, Nadim tweeted: "Great experience making my debut at York Hall. Thank you to Eddie Hearn, Frank Smith, Paul Ready and everyone at Matchroom Boxing and Sky Sports Boxing

for giving me the opportunity. Thank you to all those who travelled down to support me #boxing."

The super bantamweight, who is a former England Boxing National Amateur champion, is now set to have a bright 2020 as he moves through the pro ranks.

This victory caps off a superb year for Nadim which has included winning a prestigious national title.

In April he beat John O'Meara, of Dale Youth in West London, to win the 52-56kg category final at the England Boxing National Amateur Championship 2019 Finals Day held at Manchester Central.

Nadim has previously been associated with Bury ABC trainer Mick Jelly who guided the careers of star names Amir Khan and Scott Quigg.
