City boxers will have to wait for their crack at any titles
‘Relatively new to the professional ranks’
ABERDEEN’S newest boxing talents were today warned they will have to wait for their crack at title glory.
Matthew McAllister and Darren Traynor both maintained their 100% professional records with points victories at the Beach Ballroom.
Welterweight McAllister, 23, saw off William Warburton 79-74, while super-featherweight Traynor, 25, defeated Hungarian Ignac Kassai 39-37.
But the duo’s manager Tommy Gilmour revealed they will have to sweat before a title shot.
Gilmour said: “Boxing is a hard game to get to the top level and they are still relatively new to the professional ranks.
“Matty is still young and needs a few more fights of eight rounds at two minutes each.
“Then I will put him in to fights of six rounds of three minutes.
“After that we will look for a Scottish title shot or maybe the British Masters.
“As for major title contention, talk to me in 18 months’ time.
“Darren will also have to get about another 10 fights under his belt before pushing for a title.”
