The 24-year-old outpointed Mancunian Darryl Sharp during the four-round light middleweight contest.

Fitzgerald was appearing on the “Leeds Rumble” which saw hometown boy Josh Warrington edge closer to a world featherweight title bout with victory over Patrick Hyland.

Meanwhile, Chorley’s super-lightweight Jack Catterall will meet Tyrone Nurse in a British title showdown.
