Defending champion Mark Allen was beaten 6-1 by Shaun Murphy at the semi-final stage of the Rundili Wuxi Classic on Saturday.

Former world champion Murphy surged into a 5-0 lead before Antrim player Allen pulled one back with a green-to-black clearance.

A 54 break from Murphy in the next frame was enough to secure victory.

Allen reached the semi-finals after clinching a 5-3 success over Marco Fu on Friday.
