Booth suffers loss in Peterborough, but Wood wins again
Boxing: There was disappointment for Nottingham's Tyan Booth at The Arena, in Peterborough.
He was disqualified in the ninth round of his International Masters light-heavyweight title fight with Cello Renda for persistent infringement of the rules.
Both boxers had already been deducted a point when Renda was left with two bad cuts around his eye following an accidental clash of heads.
But Gedling's Leigh Wood, who also boxes out of the Ingle stable in Sheffield, made it seven wins out of seven in the pro ranks.

He had a regulation 40-36 points win over journeyman Kristian Laight who has won only seven of his 152 fights
No.1 contender Adonis Stevenson says he would prefer to fight Carl Froch.
The winner of the unification match Froch v Kessler II, at the O2 Arena in London on May 25, must defend their titles against Stevenson within 90 days.
"My preference is Carl Froch because he fought two boxers from Canada," said Stevenson.
"He fought Jean Pascal and he got the win, and he fought Lucian Bute and won the title.
"So I think with him that's the dream, because Carl Froch is going to come to Montreal."
See tomorrow's Post for full coverage of the big press conference between Notts' very own Cobra and Dane Kessler, where the pair officially rubber-stamp their re-match.
Froch victim Andre Dirrell, who had not boxed since December 2011, made his comeback with a unanimous eight-round points win over Michael Gbenga, in Texas.
