Boxing's biggest loser bows out a winner

10:56 am on 1 November 2008

Boxing's biggest loser has avoided a 257th defeat with Peter Buckley winning his last bout on points.

Fighting before his home fans in Birmingham, the 39-year-old super-featherweight has taken his tally of victories to 32 in his 300th professional fight with a 40-38 decision at the end of the four-round contest.

Billed as the worst loser in boxing, Buckley has been fighting virtually once a week, and once lost 88 contests in a row.

He also has 12 draws on his record.

Buckley has lost against fighters who went on to become world champions, including "Prince" Naseem Hamed, Duke McKenzie, Scott Harrison and Colin McMillan.
