YORK HALL regular Pat McAleese moved away from the Bethnal Green venue for the first time on Saturday night, but it did not stop his victory march as he recorded his seventh straight success.

McAleese, trained by Johnny Eames at Canning Town's Ultrachem TKO Gym, appeared on the bill at the Liquid and Envy night club, Redhill, where he scored a fourth-round win over Cambridge rival Louis Byrne.

Light-middleweight McAleese took early control as he dominated the opening rounds landing solid punches.

Byrne battled to turn the tide in the third round, but was still on the receiving end as he took solid shots to the head and body.

He was clearly weakening in the fourth round and McAleese stepped up the pace to force the intervention, which came when referee Ian John Lewis moved in to signal the end.

There was also a debut success for another boxer from the TKO gym, welterweight Darryl Setterfield, on the Redhill promotion.
