A DUNFERMLINE Boxing Club prospect has fought his way to a maiden title.

Sandy Stewart won two fights in two days to be crowned the Scottish Intermediate Champion in the 2004 60kg category.

The 15-year-old was a unanimous winner in both bouts.

Dany Coll, head coach, was delighted with the youngster's performances.

He said: "He's been at the club for over a year now and he's done everything we've asked of him.

"He's had five fights and lost one.

"He was disappointed about the loss but he's bounced back from that.

"Sandy was up against two boys from well-thought-of clubs, so it's a great achievement for him.

"He's a talented boy that's learning all the time.

Sandy beat Nathan Walker, from Forgewood Boxing Club, on Saturday, January 25, at an event held at Ravenscraig in Motherwell.

The following day, he defeated Jack Crow, of Newarthill Boxing Club, to win the final of the championships.

Coll added: "The club is in a positive place right now, especially now that we're back at Woodmill High School.

"Sandy didn't have the best training in preparation as a result going into that weekend. He, and all the other guys that train at the club, were using Queen Anne High School's changing rooms, corridors and any space we could, basically.

"Given that he didn't have the best preparation, we're delighted that he was able to win as he was so focused.

"It keeps all the positivity around the club going. He deserved his two wins."
