A Ruther­glen boxing coach has spo­ken of his de­light af­ter his first fight as a pro­fes­sional trainer ended with a dev­as­tat­ing first round vic­tory.

Archie Durie runs Duries boxing gym on Cam­bus­lang Road, and last week­end took took charge of his first pro­fes­sional fight as trainer of Scot­tish cham­pion Jay Car­ri­gan McFarlane, who was matched against David Howe.

Jay started strongly against the 6ft 8in tall fighter, forc­ing him into the back foot al­most im­me­di­ately throw­ing lots of over­hand rights and big left hooks to the English man’s head, be­fore catch­ing him with a right hook to the side of the ribs that felled Howe for good.

Archie said:“This was a great re­sult for Jay to avenge a two time de­feat from a strong op­po­nent in David Howe, and to win in the man­ner he did with a first round KO was fan­tas­tic.

“This win will set him up nicely for the start of the new year.”
