Photographer Javed Iqbal captured some fantastic shots at last Saturday’s English super featherweight title fight between Dewsbury’s Gary Sykes and Ashton’s Jonny Kays.

There was huge demand for press accreditation at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, with many there for the main event between Amir Khan and Julio Diaz.

Javed’s pass was placed high up in the Arena, as his picture here shows, but he still managed to capture some superb images from the fight.
