WBC Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has been awarded BBC Radio 5 Live Boxing's British fighter of the year prize after two successful defences of his title this year.

The 34-year-old stopped Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April before dismantling Derek Chisora earlier this month.

Unbeaten light-welterweight Adam Azim was named breakout star of the year.

WBA light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol (BYVAL) got the international boxer of the year award after the Russian became the first opponent in nine years to beat Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, before a comprehensive points victory over Gilberto Ramirez.
