Wishaw Press - - SCHOOL NEWS - Ben Ra­m­age

Scott Al­lan says he is in the best form of his life af­ter win­ning his first fight af­ter sign­ing for St Andrew’s Sport­ing Club.

He de­feated Spa­niard John­son Tellez over six three-minute rounds.

Al­lan said: “I’m de­lighted with how I per­formed.

“It was def­i­nitely one of my best. I was so re­laxed and so ready. I ac­tu­ally en­joyed my­self.

“He wasn’t too bad but he never trou­bled me. I picked him off left, right and cen­tre.

“Even the ref­eree com­mented on how much I’d im­proved. “It was a good con­fi­dence booster.” Al­lan be­lieves his com­fort­able points win over the Barcelona scrap­per at the Rad­di­son Blu in Glas­gow was the per­fect prepa­ra­tion for his next fight.

He will take on Jamie Wil­son for the Celtic ban­tamweight ti­tle on Oc­to­ber 6, which will also dou­ble up as a Bri­tish ti­tle elim­i­na­tor.

He said: “I’m looking for­ward to fight­ing Jamie and lift­ing that ti­tle. “I’m very con­fi­dent of win­ning that fight. “We’ve sparred a lot in the past so I know his style and I know how to beat him.”

Al­lan had a dis­ap­point­ing start to the year when he was forced to pull out of his huge Hy­dro clash with ‘Light­ning’ Lee Mc­Gre­gor due to the flu.

He has since signed with St Andrew’s SC, who he be­lieves have helped turned his for­tunes around.

“I was glad to put all that Hyrdo stuff to bed,” he said.

“Ev­ery­thing’s gone great with St Andrew’s. It feels so good to be the home fighter for a change.

“It’s awe­some to have them be­hind me go­ing for­ward.”

Al­lan will face off against Wil­son at the Pais­ley La­goon Cen­tre on Oc­to­ber 6.

He has boxed at the venue once be­fore, win­ning com­fort­ably, and he hopes that will stand him in good stead on his re­turn.
