He never let his opponent settle and landed his combinations at will to claim a unanimous points decision.

Nadeem fought Rico Cheed and had to dig deep for his majority points win, showing great courage to overcome a bad start. He began slowly and lost the first round but came back strongly to nick the second round.

He then needed a big last round to convince the judges and he produced it in style.

It was a great scrap for the neutral with plenty of heavy and crisp shots being landed throughout.
