On the 24th Feb our Uddingston Gyms Boxing Team, travelled through to Penicuik, Edinburgh to fight for the UBBF Semi Pro European Boxing Title.
First up we had Daniel Baird fighting at 60kg and given it was only his second fight he went out there and stopped the lad in the first round with a great body shot. The night was off to a great start. Next up was Scott Furley fighting at 74kg, sadly Scott’s fight was scored a Technical Draw due to a cut in the opening seconds of round two. The two lads came together in the corner clashing heads opening a inch long cut above Scott’s right eye. Doctors stopped the fight for safety reasons.
Next up was the big one, Andy McKenzie taking on Stu Campbell from Dundee for the Vacant UBBF European Semi Pro Boxing Title. Andy fought very well from round 1 to 5 and got the decision, winning every round on all judges score cards!
We had only went and done it….. Andy was crowned champion and picked up a stunning European title strap.
See picture above, Mr Dickson was happier than Andy by looks of things!
