Town boxer Stuart Green could fight for the Commonwealth title on home soil if a venue can be found.

Glenrothes Boxing Club’s pro fighter retained his Scottish light welterweight belt against Mitch Prince in Glasgow a fortnight ago.

Green (29) was well ahead on points when the fight was stopped at the start of the fourth round due to Prince suffering a nasty cut above his eye.

Now the local fighter is chasing a title showdown with current Commonwealth champion Willie Limond.

Club trainer, Steven McGuire senior, told the Gazette: “I don’t think the fight will be hard to make but we will have to look for a large venue in Fife to hold it.

“I spoke to Tommy Gilmour, the current manager of both boxers, and if we can get the sponsorship and ticket sales there will not be a problem staging the Commonwealth title fight in Fife round about May or June time.”

Glenrothes Boxing Club claimed another champion on January 18 when 16-year-old Ryan McKelvie ran out a clear unanimous points winner over unbeaten Connor McCallum from Edinburgh to claim the Eastern District Youth title.

This weekend, one of the club’s female fighter, Hanna Carlsson, is travelling to Coventry in an attempt to claim the British University Championship.
