John Simpson topped Choi Tseveenpurev in the featured undercard bout of the night, winning on scores of 116-112, 117-112, and 116-113. These were hometown scores, though I thought the fight was close enough -- BLH had it 115-113 for Choi, who really didn't get nearly enough credit from the judges, none of whom gave him more than four rounds of his own. Simpson is now 25-9 (11 KO), while the 41-year-old Choi falls to 36-7 (24 KO).

Super featherweight prospect Michael Roberts of Glasgow took a tough six-round win over Mariusz Bak, winning on a score of 58-57. Roberts is now 12-0 (1 KO), while Bak slips to 2-4 (0 KO).

Edinburgh's Stephen Simmons dominated and stopped Michael Sweeney of Ireland after three rounds, when Sweeney retired on his stool. The win gives Simmons (8-0, 4 KO) the BBBofC Celtic cruiserweight title. Sweeney falls to 12-3-1 (6 KO).

Former footballer David Brophy, a 22-year-old super middleweight prospect, stayed unbeaten with a 58-57 points win over tough prospect checker Gary Boulden, improving to 7-0 (0 KO). Boulden (7-8-2, 0 KO) once went distance with Billy Joe Saunders, and is no scrub, with a record that indicates handling more than ability. BLH had it 57-57. It was a very good bout.

Super middleweight prospect Rocky Fielding kicked off the Sky Sports broadcast from Glasgow with an easy first round TKO win over Poland's Michal Nieroda, viciously attacking from the get-go, targeting the body, and scoring a knockdown and the finish at 59 seconds. Fielding is now 14-0 (8 KO), while Nieroda drops to 11-4 (6 KO).
