Tributes have been paid to Mr Bradley, with messages left at the scene of the fight.

One read: "Such a waste of a beautiful young man."

His former boxing coach Kevin Sheehan, from Benny's Boxing Club in the city, said: "He was a great lad who was not the sort to fall out with anyone.

"I just can't believe it - he lost his mum before he started boxing and that might have been why he took it up."

"He won every time he boxed for me - by the time he was 15 he had won a national schoolboy championship."
