Win sets up Scott for Celtic title shot
Allan victory in Glasgow
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.
