Eamonn O’Kane’s World title dream is still on track after winning his fight in Swindon on Friday night.

O’Kane - ranked in the top ten by the IBF - stopped Ferenc Hafner in the fourth round of their contest.

It was O’Kane’s first fight under new trainer Paddy Fitzpatrick and what a way to start to their partnership.

And with Felix Sturm and Billy Joe Saunders both turning down the chance to fight Hassan N’Dam for the IBF strap the number eight ranked fighter has moved closer to a possible tilt.
