Three-time Irish Olympian Paddy Barnes has made it four wins from four in the pro ranks with a facile victory over Spain's Juan Hinostroza in Edinburgh.

The two-time Olympic bronze medallist won every round on the judges scorecard for a 60-53 success.

The 30-year-old had his opponent on the canvas in the second round but the Spaniard hung in there to last the six rounds.

It was a typically busy performance from Barnes who will now turn his attention to a fight on the undercard of Carl Frampton's Belfast Homecoming on November 18.
