With his left eye swollen completely shut through the final four rounds, Hall received winning scores of 116-111, 117-110 and 117-110. He floored Malinga in the third round.

The 33-year-old Hall took up boxing at age 28 after spending five years on a drink and drug-fuelled binge in Ibiza.

''It feels unbelievable,'' Hall said. ''I knocked him down but he came back at me. They're so much tougher at this level. I couldn't see anything out of my left eye for the final few rounds, but I kept my focus and I always knew I was in front.''
