Inverness City Boxing Club claim Scottish champion scalps

By Will Clark

Inverness City Boxing Club (ICBC) celebrated a knockout night at its home show when all of their fighters won their bouts at The Ironworks.

The two biggest scalps of the evening came from George Stewart and Adian Williamson who defeated Scottish champions.

In the main event, Stewart defeated Scottish 56kg champion Billy Miller with a split decision of 3-2 in an epic contest.

Meanwhile Alness fighter Williamson proved too good for Scottish 60kg champion Corey Rizza from Elgin as he won his bout by unanimous decision.

ICBC head coach Laurie Redfern said for both fighters it was their biggest bouts of their careers and they proved they rank among the best in the country with their wins.

“Adian got his seventh win in eight bouts this season,” he said.

“It was scrappy at times as both boxers’ styles clashed.

“But Adian proved that he was the stronger boxer.

“Corey was happy to box on the retreat but when it came to toe-to-toe Adian would win those contests.

“Adian was under orders to press and he did just that and got the unanimous decision.

“George won the star bout of the night and he proved to be a class act.

“He maintained control from the first bell but Miller was always dangerous and it was a close contest at times.

“But at the end of each round George was on top and he took the bout 3–2 from the judges.”

Calum Turnbull made his comeback after being out of action for eight months with hand surgery when he fought an exhibition with Luke Armstrong from Granite City Boxing Club.

Noah Henry also impressed on the night when he defeated Ryan Thomson from Arbroath.

Tymoteusz Ozog continued his impressive start to his amateur career beating Harry Welsh from Arbroath by unanimous decision.

Catrin King recorded an impressive victory over Nell Conkey from Carlisle with wins also for Robert Stewart and Kian Stewart on the night.
