Box­ers star at show

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

A Ruther­glen Box­ing Club had four fight­ers in ac­tion at an East Kil­bride show at the end of last month.

On Fri­day, May 29, Durie’s Box­ing Gym, who op­er­ate out of Hill­house In­dus­trial Es­tate, had box­ers com­pet­ing in the Jack­ton ABC show at Ballerup Hall in East Kil­bride.

First in was 11-year-old James Sweeney, at 34kg, who was hav­ing his sec­ond bout to date. And it was his sec­ond win on the trot when he easily han­dled Vin­cent Scott from Bel­la­hous­ton ABC by unan­i­mous de­ci­sion.

Then it was Spring­burn lad Ger­ard McTag­gart (11) at 36kg. He was in against cur­rent Scot­tish cham­pion Mar­cus McKen­zie of Kier Hardie ABC. This was a close con­test which re­ally could have went ei­ther way but the Kier Hardie lad got the nod with a split de­ci­sion.

Next was Castlemilk man Danny Burke at 71kg. He was in against a hard punch­ing lad from Al­loa, in the form of Anas Nfaou. Danny showed great ring craft and his ex­pe­ri­ence to win this bout com­fort­ably by unan­i­mous de­ci­sion.

Last in was Castlemilk man Jason Thom­son, 91kg, against James McGrachan from Broad­wood ABC. Again this was a great close lit­tle con­test which could have went ei­ther way but it went against Jason.

Duries ABC re­main open dur­ing the sum­mer. For in­for­ma­tion on classes con­tact Archie Durie on 0759 051 5576.
