Southport’s British Muay Thai Champion Jake Barton was stopped in the second round at the O2 arena in London last night against 4x World Kickboxing Champion Chad ‘2 Slick’ Sugden.

The fight was under Pro K1 rules, different to Barton’s usual Muay Thai rules.

According to fans the fight was stopped prematurely.

A statement from the Elite camp is expected later today.
