Ulverston super lightweight Ryan Watson admits to feeling more nerves than usual before making his comeback fight against Sheffield's Qasim Hussain last Friday.

The 32-year-old, who runs his own gym in his hometown, was successful in what was his first professional bout since November 2017, winning three of the four rounds at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Watson said: "When you have that long out, the nerves get to you a bit more because, obviously, if you're fighting regularly, it's nothing new, you're used to it and the nerves don't kick in as more.

"Because I had that long time out, I had the nerves and I only had a short training camp as well.

"I had about five-and-a-half weeks and for two years out of the ring five-and-a-half weeks can be quite short. I did well, really, considering and he was a game opponent, he came to win, which I was happy about - he wasn't your typical journeyman."
