Aberdeen champion kickboxing brothers Dean and Jamie Sutherland have secured further major international title glory.
The siblings underlined their status as kickboxing’s hottest rising stars with medal success at Skyeaxe in Dundee.
Dean stopped Ireland’s hottest prospect Chad Reilly, tipped as the next Conor McGregor, to win the ISKA 65kg world title.
The 17-year-old now holds world titles at four different weight divisions.
Younger brother Jamie, 13, won the vacant ISKA European title.
Dean won with a third round stoppage over Republic of Ireland’s MMA prospect Reilly, who has been touted to follow in the footsteps of MMA legend McGregor.
Reilly trains at the Fusion MMA facility in Athlone which is affiliated to the UFC featherweight champion McGregor.
Dean said: “Reilly is a lot bigger than me so I did not expect a stoppage. But I thought I would be too fast and skilful for him.
“In the third, the referee gave him an eight count and was about to let the fight continue when his corner threw in the towel.
“Reilly is a big MMA prospect so to get a stoppage against him was fantastic. People in MMA will really start to keep an eye on me, especially if that is the route I want to go down.
“I take confidence in that I did not have to force the stoppage, it came naturally with power.”
Dean now holds world titles at 60kg, 62kg, 63.5kg and 65kg.
After dominating his age groups with multiple world, Euro and national titles since the age of 10, he is set to step up to the senior ranks later this year when he turns 18.
He said: “I have never heard of someone under 18 having four different world titles.
“Turning 18 will open up a lot of avenues. There will be people out to knock me down a peg or two as I am going into their territory.
“I am looking forward to that challenge.”
Jamie defeated experienced Irish champion Aaron O’Donoghue on a unanimous points decision.
He is set to feature for Scotland in a showdown with France in Dundee on November 26.
He said: “I knew O’Donoghue would be really tough as he has had a lot of fights.
“However, I also felt confident going into the ring.
“It was a really tough fight against an awkward opponent so I was delighted to win the title.
“I had trained hard for that fight and it paid off.”
