A boxer from Gorleston has won his first professional boxing fight at London's York Hall.
Henri Potter said he secured a "comfortable" win over his heavier opponent Fonz Alexander, cheered on by around 100 fans from his home town who "raised the roof".
The 24-year-old said he was "buzzing" after his win on Saturday which came after four rounds in the ring.
He said a last minute change of opponent who was "better than his record suggested" meant he had to "play it a bit smarter."
"I won the first three rounds pretty comfortably and in the last round I played it simple when I was told the only way I could lose was if I got knocked out," he said.

He went on to lose the last round, but won overall on decision.
He was described on the night as "very fast and really sharp".
