The 33-year-old from Cromer scored a split decision victory over Scottish challenger Lewis Paulin at a noisy York Hall on Friday night.

You may also want to watch:

Two judges scored it 117-111 and 115-114 in favour of Walsh with a third giving it to Paulin, 115-113.

Walsh rocked the challenger in the third and later in the fight produced some quality upper-cuts as he produced the more accurate, damaging work.

Paulin had it all too do in the latter rounds, but it wasn't enough to deny Walsh, who made it six defences of the crown he refuses to give up.
