Belfast boxer Paddy Barnes says going the full 10 rounds against Silviu Olteanu will prove invaluable experience.
Barnes, winner of two Olympic bronze medals, outpointed the experienced Romanian to claim the vacant WBO European flyweight title.
The 30-year-old Belfast man's aim is to get a crack at a world championship.
