There were no gimmicks needed to produce an excellent night of boxing as the Alona Hotel hosted Fight Club 3 on Friday.

Fighting Scots Gym and Mayhem Boxing Promotions pride themselves on avoiding mismatches to give the packed crowd a memorable night of action.

The nine bout card saw two title fights with Paul Brannen beating Paul Williamson and Gary McMillan becoming a Scottish champion at the expense of Rory Harwood.

It was a night of double celebration in the McMillan household as Gary’s brother Steven saw off Stephen Erwin.

Former ring girl Vikki Horn made her Fight Club bow with a win over Gemma Thomas, while Darren Millar and Mike McGregor did likewise against in their respective bouts against Billy Brooks and Wayne O’Neil.

The other fights saw James McAuley beat James McFarlane, Gerry Gillen beat Willie Kerr and Richie Carrigan beat Carl Sweeney.

Fighting Scots Gym head coach Frank Gilluley said: “There was no theme this time, but the quality of the show spoke for itself, with some really fantastic fights on the night.

“We always make sure our fighters are well matched as their safety is our number one priority so we avoid mismatches and that can be seen in the ring.”
