Connor Law maintained his perfect start to his professional boxing career at the Ravenscraig Sports Centre in Motherwell on Saturday night.

The Glenrothes Boxing Club fighter claimed a 40-37 points victory after his four round bout against Matthew Mallin from Barnsley went the full distance.

The Fife middleweight now has five wins from five pro fights and his coach, Steven McGuire, is pleased with his fighter’s progress.

“He boxed really well,” he said. “It was a good performance against a tough guy.

“Connor was a wee bit nervous to start off with, and I don’t blame him.

“This was only his fifth fight against a guy who had 12 bouts and nine wins.

“The guy has also fought for the English middleweight title so we’re quite happy.”

After the first round was judged as a draw, Connor dominated the remainder of the fight.

“I thought Connor had finished him in the third round,” McGuire added. “Only the bell saved the guy.”

Connor’s next fight will see him feature on a Barry McGuigan bill in Meadowbank on October 16. His opponent is still to be confirmed.

Thereafter, he is scheduled to appear on a card at the Gilvebank Hotel in Glenrothes on November 20.

“We’re trying to keep him busy to get him up the rankings,” McGuire explained.
