Barnes loses title shot to Okine
David Barnes' challenge for the Commonwealth welterweight title fell short in Manchester on Sunday morning.

Local boy Barnes was stopped in the 12th round by Ghana's Joshua Okine. The 24-year-old Barnes fought a cagey opening but was floored in the fifth round by a flurry of blows before holding on until the end of the round.

Barnes rallied, but the champion caught the inexperienced Barnes with a heavy right hand in the final round and the referee jumped in to stop the fight.
