Have your say

EDINBURGH fighters enjoyed success on the undercard of Willie Limond’s unsuccessful British lightweight title bid against Anthony Crolla at Ravenscraig Sports Centre.

Welterweight Gary McMillan had a six-round points win over London-based Peter McDonough and is now eyeing a rematch with Paisley’s Kevin McIntyre, who beat him at Meadowbank in August.

Light-middleweight John Thain overcame a sluggish first-round showing to beat Scunthorpe’s Steve Spence, while Edinburgh cruiserweight Steve Simmons enjoyed a 60-55 points victory over late substitute opponent John Anthony.
