Jamie Conlan keeps his world super-flyweight title ambitions alive by earning a split-decision win over Nicaraguan Yader Cardoza in Belfast.
Conlan, 30, said he had to "ride out a bit of a storm" after being floored by the former world light-flyweight title challenger in the eighth round.
"When I got back to the corner, I said to myself: 'I've taken his best now'," said the Belfast man.
