Castlemilk man Ross Mur­ray re­mains un­de­feated as a pro­fes­sional af­ter cruis­ing to a sixth straight vic­tory.

The 35-year-old never dropped a round against Hun­gar­ian Gyula Dodu at the Pais­ley La­goon Cen­tre on July 1.

Dodu trav­elled with a win­ning ledger of 12-4, but every time he ven­tured out of his home­land, he’d been stopped.

Al­though frus­trated by Dodu’s move­ment and high guard, the Bri­tish fly­weight No 3 found joy when his op­po­nent be­gan to tire and he scored a knockdown. This helped see him win the con­test by 60-53.

He said:“I was hop­ing for the stop­page but un­for­tu­nately that didn’t come. But I won every round so it was quite straight for­ward.

“He was de­cent. He was com­ing with a win­ning record so I knew this would prob­a­bly be my tough­est fight yet. I think it brought the best out of me.”
