Head clash for Aberdeen boxer Mark Laskowski in ‘no contest’ bout

Aberdeen-based lightweight Marek Laskowski suffered injury frustration on his return to fight in his native Poland for the first time in eight years.

Laskowski, pictured, suffered a bad gash over his right eye following a clash of heads in the second round with Polish number one Damian Wrzesinski.

The fight was stopped and declared a no contest.

The clash was broadcast live on Polish television.

As the number two-rated lightweight in Poland it was a match-up between the nation’s two top-rated boxers at that weight.

Laskowski recently claimed the Scottish lightweight title with a points win over Andrew Mackay in Glasgow.

The Granite City ABC based fighter became the first Polish boxer to win a Scottish title.

It was a belt previously held by Scottish ring legend and former world champion Ken Buchanan.

Meanwhile, Byron Boxing duo John Docherty and Boris Crighton both impressed at the prestigious Tammer tournament in Finland.

Previous winners at the event are ring legends like Mike Tyson and Oscar De La Hoya.

Commonwealth Youth champion Docherty defeated the defending champion, who went on to fight in the Olympic qualifiers, in his opening bout.

However, Docherty suffered a set-back in his next fight when suffering a cut as a result of a head clash in the second round.

The fight was a draw on the scorecard which went to the officials who gave Docherty’s Irish opponent the win.

Byron team-mate Crighton secured an impressive victory over a Croatian fighter.

However, he lost out in the semi-final clash.
