Stuart Hall (born 24 February 1980) is a professional British bantamweight boxer from Darlington, England. He is the current holder of the BBBofC British bantamweight title having won the belt after only nine professional fights, he has since made three successful defences.[1]

Early professional career

Hall made his professional boxing debut on 26 April 2008 with a win over Abdul Mghrbel in his home town of Darlington. The win was followed with another victory on 6 October 2008 against undefeated seven fight prospect Dougie Walton this time at the Holiday Inn in Birmingham. The two wins meant an undefeated start to his debut year in the ring.[1]

On 16 January 2009 he recorded his first win of the new year traveling to Middlesbrough to defeat Nick Seager before on 29 March 2009 meeting Stuart McFadyen and only registering a draw at the fight held in Bolton. Three more fights followed the McFadyen result with Hall winning on each occasions against the likes of journeyman Anthony Hanna and Jason Thomas and then notably on 11 November traveling to Brentford to meet former British champion Martin Power and winning in the 8th round. Hall's first fight of 2010 resulted in another points win on 12 February at the York Hall against Hungarian Richard Szebeledi meaning that Hall now boasted an unbeaten record of seven wins against only one draw.[1]

British champion

On 4 June 2010 Hall stepped into the ring against the former British and European champion Ian Napa and claimed the title in a shock result following Napa's decision not to come out for the start of the 9th round. The experienced Napa had complained about the heat at the venue in Peterlee and the fact that the making the bantamweight limit had been very hard. In contrast Hall described the result saying "It's unbelievable, a dream come true" as he claimed the title in only his 9th professional fight.[2] Hall returned to the ring shortly afterwards for his first defence on 23 July 2010 with a return match against former victim and former champion Martin Power. The fight, this time in Sunderland, once again resulted in victory for Hall with the referee stopping the contest in the 10th round with Hall having been dominant throughout.[3] On 13 November 2010 on the undercard of the Heavyweight world title fight between David Haye and Audley Harrison Hall defended his belt for the second time beating former champion Gary Davies in the 7th round and claimed that there was "more to come".[4] Hall claimed the Lonsdale Belt outright with a successful third defense on 9 April 2011 beating John Donnelly at the Rainton Meadows Arena in Houghton-le-Spring, stopping him in the fifth round. Hall said of his achievement of winning the belt outright "this is my world title, it's just unbelievable that I've got this for the rest of my life. It's such an achievement for Darlington and the north east."[5]
