Durie’s man is back

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Ruther­glen box­ing club Durie’s BC had two fighters in the ring this week in­clud­ing a teen who had not fought com­pet­i­tively for eight months.

Six­teen-year-old Nathan Basil from Castlemilk was pre­par­ing for his first bout since Septem­ber at the Springhill ABC show in Wishaw on Friday.

And the young boxer did not waste any­time stamp­ing his author­ity as he pressed for­ward, rolling his smaller pow­er­ful, body and hook­ing shots to the head of op­po­nent Ed­die Os­bourne.

He forced the ref to give a stand­ing eight count in the first two rounds and the bout was stopped late in the third.

Next in was an­other Castlemilk lad Kyle McGee, 65kg, who was jos­tled and held by Rob­bie Duffy.

Kyle landed the cleaner punches but the Springhill boxer took the fight. Kyle was also in ac­tion, May 19, in Grange­mouth and won.
