BOXERS from Kilsyth Golden Gloves were in action on Sunday night at an event in Greenock.

Sean Malone fought well in his first ever competitive bout and though he lost the judges’ decision he put in a fine performance.

Also making his competitive debut was James McKenzie who won his fight along with the Boxer of the Night award.

And Stephen Beattie, a senior boxer, won his fight in the 60 kg category with a unanimous decision.

Golden Gloves boxers will also be competing this Friday night in a show at the Burroughs Club in Cumbernauld which is being organised by Broadwood Boxing Club.

This starts at 8pm and sees a select team of local boxers taking on opposition from all over Scotland.

There will be a wide range of competitors ranging from 12 to 23 years of age in an action-packed night featuring twelve bouts.
