Manx boxer Danny Roberts won his first professional fight last night.

The 27-year-old light-middleweight was on the undercard for Liverpool fighter Tom Farrell's bout at the city's Echo Arena Auditorium.

Roberts beat Chris Jenkinson on points, in front of a crowd which included around 150 supporters from the Isle of Man.

He signed for the VIP Promotions stable in November last year.
