Shock defeat for Hide
British heavyweight Herbie Hide's comeback plans came off the rails when he suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Mendauga Kulikauskas in Nottingham.

The bout was envisaged as a warm-up for the former WBO champion's proposed fight with Danny Williams on 23 April.

But Friday's bout was stopped after three rounds because of a bad cut over Hide's left eye.

Hide's latest comeback began last April and had seen him stop Joseph Chingangu, Derek McCafferty and Alex Vassilev.

Those victories followed an 18-month exile following a disappointing defeat by Chingangu.

The two-time WBO world champion has now lost four of his 35 professional bouts.
