BRITISH SUPER BANTAMWEIGHT champion Liam Davies added the European and WBC International titles to his ever-increasing CV by outclassing Ionut Baluta over 12 rounds in Telford.

Davies was the dominant force throughout the fight, pitching his tactics to perfection and frustrating the wayward Baluta, who simply couldn't effectively get himself into range.

The long jab of Davies worked overtime and he measured his distance to keep the Romanian out of range.. The Telford favourite was tidy and well drilled, while Baluta resorted to wild swings that rarely came close to the target.

The judges scores were perhaps tighter than anticipated, with the fight being scored 116-112, 118-110 and 117-111.

"It is amazing and another step up in my career," said the new double champion. "I am 13 fights in and I've won the English, the WBC, British and European titles. I've got to give myself credit, but I will be back in the gym soon and I've conquered Britain, I've conquered Europe and now let's go for the world with BT behind me. Why not?

"I felt comfortable all the way. I hurt my hands on his head, he's got a very hard head and I had a blister that bloody hurt moving about. But look, I got the job done, I done it in my home town as main event and I've got Frank Warren and all the team getting behind me.

"Look at all the people supporting me. Money can't buy that, memories for life.

"I was too comfortable at times and I cruised through the fight again. I don't think I've really been tested yet and I am ready for another step-up. I am ready to go up and up and up.

"I am levels above everyone else, I've dusted everyone in the British rankings and European rankings and I want these big fights. The sky's the limit and I want to touch the stars. I am ready for whatever."
