Boxing: Coppola falls to Tiffney

Have your say

Lochend lightweight, Steve Tiffney was cock-a hoop after scoring a third-round stoppage win over Holyrood’s accomplished southpaw stylist and switch-hitter Phil Coppola at Kinghorn, Fife.

“Coppola is one of the best southpaws around but I beat him by switching to southpaw,” said Tiffney.

And there was further joy for Lochend boxers as welterweight Lewis Benson outpointed Holyrood’s Martyn Warner and youth light-flyweight Tommy McCallum outscored Ethan Swainson of the visiting Bilton Hall club (Tyne & Wear).
