Castlemilk vet­eran vows to end his sea­son on a high with win

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Mur­ray Spooner

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.”
