Belfast’s James Tennyson now knows who he will face for the British Featherweight title later this year.

Tennyson would have been watching on Friday night as Ryan Walsh stopped Darren Traynor in the fifth round to retain his British title.

Walsh - who looked impressive against Traynor - must now defend his belt against Tennyson within 90 days.

And the Belfast fighter will be confident of getting the job done when they finally meet later this year.
