Conlan extended his winning run to ten fights with a 97-92, 97-92, 98-92 win.

The 27-year-old established control of the fight early on and despite a points deduction for low blows in the sixth round, he never looked like losing the verdict.

Conlan came close to knocking out Cunningham (24-5) at the end with a flurry of punches.

However, the English fighter held on to reach the final bell and deny Conlan a seventh knock-out win.
