Curtis Woodhouse has now gone 10 fights unbeaten after overcoming Nottingham's Matt Scriven on Sunday night.

The 28-year-old Driffield-born boxer and Mansfield Town midfielder won the six-round fight at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane on points.

Woodhouse told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I like to knock them out but you can't knock everyone out.

"Matt Scriven was two weight divisions above me, so I was hitting him but he wasn't going anywhere."

Woodhouse said: "I always felt in control but... boxing's about giving and taking punishment - you can't always give it out you've got to be able to take a bit as well.

"I took a few shots tonight but I feel great."

Woodhouse signed for Mansfield in January.

Manager David Holdsworth has said he is happy for the midfielder to carry on boxing.
