By Mike Dawes
British light-middleweight Brian Rose took a step towards elite level with a battling 12th-round stoppage of former world champion Joachim Alcine in Blackpool.

The 37-year-old Haitian-born Canadian dropped back down to 154lbs for this contest having been halted in a round by Matthew Macklin last time out and his days at the top level appear to be over.
Congratulations: Promoter Eddie Hearn was in the ring after the victory
British featherweight champion Lee Selby (15-1), like Rose making his debut as a member of promoter Eddie Hearn's Matchroom stable, displayed dazzling form in defence of his Commonwealth strap.
