Scottish champion

ARBROATH Boxing Club produced another Scottish champion at the weekend.

Nathan Shaw, competing in the Schoolboys’ Novice Championships at Meadowbank Stadium, Edinburgh, defeated three opponents over two days to emerge triumphant in the 1999 age group, 40kg class.

He won a convincing 8-1 points victory over Craig Aitchison, Dunfermline, followed by a consummate 6-1 decision against Dean Moran, Bellahouston.

In the final he faced Lochend’s Tommy McCallum. This was a tougher challenge and Shaw dug deep to eventually produce a very creditable and deserved 3-1 points victory.

The competition was promoted by Amateur Boxing Scotland.
