Preston boxer Scott Fitzgerald was given a scare before notching his fifth victory in the professional ranks on Saturday night.

The 24-year-old Commonwealth Games champion was sent to the canvas in the third round after being caught by Adam Jones.

The former Larches and Savick Amateur Boxing Club star recovered though to earn victory in the light-middleweight contest, winning four of the six rounds at the Liverpool Arena.
