Hide win continues title pursuit

Herbie Hide
Hide has never been beaten as a cruiserweight

Former world heavyweight champion Herbie Hide has won again as he bids to become world champion at cruiserweight.

Hide beat Poland's Lukasz Rusiewicz on points over six rounds in a hastily arranged bout in Germany.

Hide is currently ranked the number two challenger to the WBC cruiserweight world title and is expected to face an eliminator with Krzysztof Wlodarczyk.

Hide recently fought in the UK for the first time in four years, defeating Aleksejs Kosobokovs in Norwich.
