Glenrothes Boxing Club’s Connor Law made it four wins from four since turning professional at the Gilvenbank Hotel last Friday.

After four call-offs for opponents, Connor had to settle for an up and coming boxer from Spain, Cristian Gomez, who was a very tough opponent, having knocked out the European champion last year.

The fight started at a very fast pace with Connor throwing straight, fast combinations to the head of Gomez. In the second round, Connor changed tactics, working the head and body and forcing Gomez to miss with a lot of punches.

In the third and fourth rounds, Connor stepped up the pace to try and go for the stoppage.

It wasn’t to be, but it was a perfect performance from Connorm who was a clear points winner, 40-36, while he was also voted Boxer of the Year by St Andrews Sporting Club.

Connor will have a rest now before his fifth fight in Ravenscraig Sports Centre, Motherwell on September 5. Also top of the bill at Gilvenbank on Friday was another Glenrothes boxer, Andrei Podusov, who came away with a 78-76 points win over Alex Phillips, from Derby.
