Castlemilk veteran vows to end his season on a high with win
Castlemilk’s Ross Murray is in search of his sixth straight victory when he fights an inform Hungarian boxer this weekend.
The flyweight British number three was due to box in an eight-round bout which would earn him qualification to fight for a title next season.
But event organisers have since changed the match-up with Hungary’s Gyula Dodu to a six rounder, meaning Ross is now a fight behind in his attempt to claim a championship belt.
Ross, 35, however, has his mind focused intently on ending his season on a high at the MTK Scotland event at the Paisley Lagoon Centre on July 1 despite the set-back.
He said: “He’s coming with a record of 12 wins and four losses so he’s coming with a winning record.
“But I don’t know too much about him because a lot of his fights were fought in Hungary.
“This will be the last fight of the season so I’ll be going for win number six on Saturday.
“It got changed to a six [round bout] when it was meant to be an eight which would have qualified me to fight for a title.
“But that’s still the aim to qualify for a title fight next season.
“I’ll just be one fight behind where I should have been.”
