Jacobite boxers revel in special atmosphere in third home show
They say third time is the charm, and Bobby Russell says Jacobite Boxing Club’s third show in Nairn built up a special atmosphere.
A capacity crowd of 320 at the Nairn Community Centre were treated to a glut of home victories too, with Jacobite boxers winning nine of their 10 bouts on the card.
The opening bout of the night saw 11-year-old Gavin Patience score a unanimous win against Luis Rossi (Kirkintilloch Boxing Club), before Matty Rae scored his first victory with a second-round stoppage over Glasgow City’s Danny Ali.
Lewis Grimm and Shaun Young then added to the home club’s tally, before Glen Graham on debut overcame Lewis MacIntosh (Declaration 1320) and “Dazzling” Darren Cameron impressed against Mark Allen (Glasgow City).
Jemma Cameron, who has been invited to spar with world champion Hannah Rankin, showed off her credentials against a tough opponent in Stacey Carr from Kirkintilloch.
Then it was left to Tam Curley to close the show in the main event spot.
